Oh, Sweet Monday
It has reared its head once again. Here’s your motivational Monday pick me up. The day sandwiched between Sunday and Tuesday. It’s the beginning of a new week the promise of starting that diet, unhabit (don’t bother looking it up, it’s not a word), workout, etc… Monday is also the day where we have must wake up to an alarm, check our work e-mails, review weekly schedules, return phone calls, and basically get back into adult mode. We have to untangle ourselves from the weekend and dive back into getting stuff done. But, there are things that prevent us from doing what we need to accomplish.
My roadblocks are in the guise of my two and one-year-old girls. My one-year-old has learned how to crawl out of the crib which makes it doubly difficult when I’m trying to write through her nap time and she does NOT want to take a nap. So I hold her in my lap while I one hand peck at my words.
I could go on and on about roadblocks, but here’s the thing, it’s life, and if we want something bad enough, like writing that short story or finishing that novel that has been on the back burner since 2016. We will fight for that time and work around those roadblocks because it matters to us and who would we be if weren’t writing, right?
Write it Out
What’s preventing you from doing the things you love to do? Stop worrying, it doesn’t solve anything and start writing. Writing can be the most therapeutic thing you can do for yourself and those around you is to vent on paper or type it out. Whatever it is you’re going through, it has to get out of your system and that means out of your head, otherwise, your brain will hold it hostage and keep it repeating on autoplay. WRITE IT OUT! Don’t let roadblocks get in your way and just write the damn thing.
This is a pep talk for me as much as it is for you. I’m here to tell you to keep chipping away and you’ll get there. Here’s to Mondays. We loathe them and love them. We have the opportunity to make the best use of our time or waste it. Use it wisely, at least that’s what I’m trying to do. Here are some of my favorite quotes to keep me going.
