Oh good grief! It can’t be Monday again? Didn’t we just have a Monday 2 days ago? Ugh! One minute I’m writing my ‘Exciting things to do at the weekend’ list, then the next minute, it’s game over, time to do the Monday thing.
And to make things worse, it’s nice and sunny outside. A day when you want so desperately for it to be any day, but a Monday.
As you may have gathered from my sporadic posts of late (I’ve come to realise during this stage of my blogging journey, that most bloggers always have a variety of excuses ready for not blogging every spare moment they can, together with an apology. I’m not apologising, my blogging rate is just the way I roll!) that I have been rather busy. I’m assisting with planning several events, including one that is coming very soon, fingers crossed.
To be honest, I’m exhausted, a combination of nervous energy, lack of sleep, nervous energy, bad eating habits, temperamental technology, nervous energy … did I mention nervous energy? This combined with not being able to enjoy my fun packed weekends, makes the Champers in my glass a little flat.
One thing I have learnt recently is, it’s good to be perfect, but it’s even better when the job’s done. I’m a perfectionist at heart. I’m the type of person that would happily spend 10 hours deciding on a 5 min music play list. Normally that would be a good character trait to have. However, being a perfectionist leads to worry, which leads to stress, which leads to ill health and a task which would and should be fun, turns into a Monday.
So it’s important when you find yourself still up at 3am, trying to figure out what shade of purple to use (yes that was me last week!) to ask yourself, ‘will this help achieve the end goal?’. Yes, the shade might be important, but I doubt if it’s vital for the successful completion of a project. I also doubt that anyone else will notice or even care – they are the ones at 3am fast asleep, as you should be.
I know, there are people with far bigger problems, and I do not take these serious issues lightly. It is my hope that my future projects will in some way help others, even if it’s token escapism for a few moments.
And in the great scheme of things, if Monday being your least favourite day of the week is your only problem, then you can pretty much say life isn’t bad.
But I still don’t like Mondays. I can’t stand them. Unless it’s a Bank Holiday Monday, in which case, all is forgiven. Well, until the next Monday.
What’s your favourite day of the week and why? And what’s your least favourite? Are you lucky and love all the days of the week? Let us know!
Thanks for reading, and happy Monday, wherever you are 🙂
