Happy Monday

You already know, I’m not much of a morning person or a Monday person, so Happy Monday is really more of just a figure of speech!  I suppose I can play the glad game, like my friend Cherrye taught me (I think it came from Pollyanna, but don’t quote me on that!)  Anywho, you play the glad game by turning a negative thought into something positive, or finding something to be glad about in every situation.  It is from Pollyanna, and you can read about it at that link.  So, let’s play!

  • I don’t like getting up early in the morning, but waking up early means I’m alive, and I’m glad for that!
  • I really don’t like going to work on Monday mornings, but I am glad I have a job to get up and go to. 
  • I don’t like doing housework, but I am happy, because it means that I have a home to live in and things of my own.      

I’ll admit, it’s not always easy to play the glad game when life’s got you down.  But I’ll let you in on a little secret…I’ll also admit I’ve played the glad game in a little mean/nasty way (probably not how Pollyanna would have wanted it!)  I can’t think of a real example of something I’ve actually said, but it would probably be something along these lines.  “I wish it was easier to find a new job, but at least I’m glad that when I find one, I’ll have earned it and my whole life won’t be based on the favor of someone whose ass I’ll have to kiss forever”.   I guess whatever makes you feel better!   🙂

Happy Monday!
