MIAGD: Make it a great day
There are a number of songs about Mondays. “Rainy Days and Mondays.” “Manic Monday.” “I Hate Mondays.” And of course, “Monday, Monday” by The Mamas & The Papas.
I’ve enjoyed four productive and relaxing days off from teaching and am planning on adding the fifth enjoyable and productive day with this Monday. I also have Monday and Tuesday mornings free of online class teaching.
The first two days of the break were beautiful with warmer weather but the past few days have been chilly and damp with intermittent showers. Today is old and wet.
Monday gets a bad rap.
People begin complaining Sunday afternoons about returning to work. I’m sure most comments are a joking habit. However, there are some that seem to truly resent Mondays.
Mondays, for me, have always been a return to something I love, teaching. My Mondays, now, are my Sundays and I’m always eager to jump back into making music and spending time with students.
Monday. The “M word.”
Other “M words” are: magnificent, marvelous, majestic, mindful, magic, miracle, master, magnitude, meaningful, mystic, merry, motivation, moving, meditation, magnetic, mesmerizing… I know there are more “M words” but these were the ones that came to mind.
Magnificent Monday. Magical Monday. Motivating Monday. Mystic Monday.
One word can alter the meaning of something to make it more positive, possible, or powerful.
Make it a magnificent, merry, magical, motivating, masterful, and meaningful MonDay!
