How are you feeling today? Excited – Bored – Hopeful – Hopeless – Dreadful – Engaged – Grateful –Resentful – Joyful?
You can feel all sorts of ways.
I had a friend who started dreading Monday on Sunday. It became her habit.
I hope that’s not your reality.
I read a quote today: “Changing what you think can change how you feel.”
So often, our thinking defines us. And the thinking determines how we feel.
Starting each work week with dread is a special kind of hell. You’re starting the week with no momentum. You’re at the bottom, and you are rolling the stone uphill.
But what if she began her Sundays another way?
“Tomorrow, I get to start a new week. I get to see my friends at work. I get to start a new project. I get to try for a new record.”
Any of those thoughts would trigger a more rewarding and successful approach to the week.
We each have choices about how we “do” life. Purposefully capturing and directing our thoughts in a more positive direction will help us “do” life better.
