Happy Monday!

A “Happy Monday” post – – Lighter fare in the form of great quotes on life, great illustrations, humor, and occasionally, art.

I began telling people, “Happy Monday!”  more than 30 years ago.  Imagine the number of grumpy responses I have received in return.  I really have never understood the Monday blues and the every-week bad attitude.

Why celebrate Mondays?  Here are a few of my reasons:

If you make it to Monday, you are alive and kicking.  Many did not make it to Monday. Be grateful.  Celebrate!

If you are at work on a Monday, you have work.  Many do not go to work Mondays…because they have no work.  Unless retired, they are sort of stuck.  You are not.  Love it.  Work it.  Celebrate it!

Mondays are GSD days, “Get Stuff Done.”  The grumps all stay quiet and mope, making it easier for you to kick tail and take names on your office to do list.  Celebrate that!

Mondays make you take up responsibility, which means they “grow you up.”  If you show up and go up on Mondays, you grow up.  You are tough, responsible, trustworthy, and a team player.  Celebrate that, too!

My dad used to tell me, “Every day above ground is a good one!”  He was right.  Including Mondays.

One thought on “Happy Monday!

  1. I love this! I began saying “Happy Monday’s!” many years ago. When I was a school Principal my Pollyanish attitude caused the eye rolls at the front door. I’d say to my carpool teachers, “Hey! Only four more days to Friday’s!” My Grandpa said something similar to your family saying, “There’s no hearse in my driveway!” In every email I still begin with “Happy…whatever day!”
