Day 25 (of 189) just another manic Monday

Mondays. The dreadful day that anybody who has read Garfield knows all too well…

As I shared to one learner today, for kids like my son the only day harder than a Monday is the first day after a three day weekend….like the one coming up in BC for Thanksgiving….the struggle is real…

Or as I reminded a parent who has introduced a new medicine to her child: about another 3-4 more weeks – it takes about six weeks for the meds to settle in. I know – they can be loooong weeks some days. :

And this is coming after a Friday where there were far too many social media posts indicating that Friday was the end of a week that felt like a month.

But sometimes a weekend just isn’t enough. As one anonymous poster pointed out:

It’s a good reminder that there are a wide variety of triggers: unpleasant weekend conversations; anniversaries of bad events (sometimes subconscious and not even able to be fully aware of); looming news stories about climate change…teaching contracts….federal elections….let alone the family stories…

But never underestimate the power of a few choice words.

(Even if it sounds like something @educelebrity would say….😜)

Positive thinking…mindsets…and words do matter!

No matter what the google machine may give you for Monday memes…

Make Monday a mindset. Build others up, sometimes let them roll as they need to. Smile. Take a walk. Binge a show…or series 😇 take some time to make sure you are doing good. And if you are having a good run of days… enjoy! What some people call “quite a day” others call…. Monday!
