Today is Monday. For me this is the start of a new week. Time to start afresh, start the week off as you want the rest of the week to follow.
I've said this before in a previous post that people give Monday a hard time and I still think this is true. The weekend is over, fun and sleep ins are over and it's back to work or school. But we have a brand new week! New adventures, new opportunities - and that is exciting!
Now that I'm no longer a student, I don't have to deal with 9am lectures on a Monday which is both a good and bad thing. I find that I don't want to sleep in anymore on weekdays and would much rather be up and dressed and ready to smash the day out instead of wasting time. But then on the other hand, because I don't have anywhere to be I'll fall into the trap of getting sucked into my laptop and then a sizeable chunk of the day is gone!!
Currently I have been up since 5:30am. Yes you heard that correctly. 5:30. On a Monday, and I don't even have a job to get to! I'm listening to the radio actually. My musical friend Jasmine and myself are trying to win tickets to an Ed Sheeran gig and if that means waking up quite early to be prepared that's what we'll do!
I think it's going to be interesting how the rest of my day goes once we've done the entering. But that's the challenge isn't it? Embrace the day no matter what has happened and make the most of the day!
I am a big lover of lists and have daily ones which I like to try and complete. Sometimes I'm a little ambitious but giving yourself a little challenge is always a good thing! Whether its household things that need to be done or if you want to bake or do some exercise, write it down and then take pride in ticking it off!
That is such a satisfying thing, at the end of the day seeing everything, not matter the size of what you have achieved in the day!!
So I'm starting my Monday off a little differently (ah the hours we wake up to try and win tickets!!) but I am still going to have a productive one! Items have been ticked off my list already and I'm hoping the rest of the day is a good one!
Until next time, keep smiling :) Em xx
