I woke up today with a great outlook on life. Like I didn’t approach my Monday like people do on a typical Monday. What’s a typical Monday anyway?
Old folk used to say any day above ground is a blessing! Something like that,…well you get the point. What I’m basically saying is we all need to check the attitude we have on this journey? Do you realize we are blessed to be alive, even on a Monday!? This got me to thinking how much of a blessing it is to be on this flight. Like seriously. Waking up and being alive is not something to take lightly. The same way people take flights out of town with this nonchalant attitude is the same mentality we can have as we approach each day on this flight called life. We could actually be taking the fact that we got another chance to get on this flight for granted! If you’re doing that, you’re probably taking the people in your life for granted too. There are people who add to your life. Sometimes we can forget that. Sometimes we can be guilty of treating people like they have to love us. We can get so used to a good thing that we begin to mishandle it and treat important people like they aren’t important. Don’t treat special people like they’re ordinary or common. Trust me. You’ll be sorry if they decide they’ve had enough of that. There are literally people who bring extra sunshine and support to your life. You should appreciate them. They shouldn’t have to beg for your respect. There are people who surround you with wisdom and encouragement and that’s a big deal. Don’t minimize the very ones who add to your day, especially your Monday’s. That’s really crazy when you think about the fact that there are people sitting in hospital beds facing devastating diagnoses regretting that they didn’t handle people in their lives who’ve stood by them and been good to them. There are people sitting in some dire situations today and if they had appreciated the good ones when they had them, they wouldn’t be saying their coulda shoulda woulda’s. So check yourself. Even some of you who woke up today complaining that you had to drive to work. Some of you spent time today complaining that you had to get up and get coffee and go to a job that pays you money. Money to pay your bills and live your life. When other people on this flight would be overjoyed to experience the life you’re living, you’re sitting around treating your whole life like a Monday. That’s not right at all.
If you’re not careful that Monday attitude will begin to take over your whole mentality and have you treating everyday with a pessimistic, ungrateful heart posture. Before you know it, you’ll be treating everything including quality people like a Monday. You’ll be going home to your amazing family and supportive spouse with this blasé sense of complacency like they have to put up with your shenanigans. Don’t you dare get comfortable treating precious people like a Monday. Snap out of it and realize Monday’s are the Take Off day to your week. If you start your take off with the wrong perspective, it could adversely impact your entire flight. Today is a reality check for us all, especially those of my real life coachable friends who can identify with this contemptible negative Monday mindset. May I remind you – It’s a blessing to be alive and Monday’s are just like life;
WHAT YOU MAKE IT!
Make it a great Monday, then keep the rest of the week on repeat.
