TGIF, but that’s not all…

Happy Friday!!!!

As much as I love Friday’s I also love starting a new week.Yes that even means Monday morning.

Being thankful for every single day is important, I think it really sets the mood for your entire day.

How many times have you heard, “Monday’s suck. I want the weekend” or something along the lines of that?

How about “I’m so thankful for the opportunity to have another beautiful day”? Or maybe something a bit more positive, perhaps?

Everyday is what you make it & hating on Monday’s is already starting your day much harder than it needs to be… So for all you monday haters, take a chill pill.

On that note, I wanted to share a quote I recently stumbled upon that really made me think:

If I ask you, “What do you want out of life?” and you say something like, “I want to be happy and have a great family and a job I like,” it’s so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even mean anything.

A more interesting question, a question that perhaps you’ve never considered before, is what pain do you want in your life? What are you willing to struggle for? Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.

Everybody wants to have an amazing job and financial independence — but not everyone wants to suffer through 60-hour work weeks, long commutes, obnoxious paperwork, to navigate arbitrary corporate hierarchies and the blasé confines of an infinite cubicle hell. People want to be rich without the risk, without the sacrifice, without the delayed gratification necessary to accumulate wealth.

Everybody wants to have great sex and an awesome relationship — but not everyone is willing to go through the tough conversations, the awkward silences, the hurt feelings and the emotional psychodrama to get there. And so they settle. They settle and wonder “What if?” for years and years and until the question morphs from “What if?” into “Was that it?” And when the lawyers go home and the alimony check is in the mail they say, “What was that for?” if not for their lowered standards and expectations 20 years prior, then what for?

Because happiness requires struggle. The positive is the side effect of handling the negative. You can only avoid negative experiences for so long before they come roaring back to life.

SUCCESS is not correlated with a negative mindset. NEVER will you get where you want with a hating attitude or an unthankful mindset.

Life is about struggling if you haven’t noticed, but not only that it’s about exactly how you react to the situations that you get yourself into.

 

Choose to be happy.

And maybe teach yourself how to enjoy everyday INCLUDING Monday’s.
