I know it’s cliche to say, but weekends are entirely too short. Mondays have a way of running up on me fast and I’m just not at the point where I’m happy to see it. I’m working on getting there, but my relationship with Mondays, and particularly Monday mornings, is a rough one. In my alternate reality I would start Mondays completely different then I do today. With this in mind I had to ask myself if I know that I want to start my Mondays differently, why don’t I?

While there are some parts of my Mondays that will take time and effort to change, there are some things I can change right now. This is where I turned to my journal and planner. In my journal I wrote, in a free flowing manner, how I would like my Monday mornings to go and discovered that it isn’t about Monday mornings specifically, it’s about the make up of my weekdays. I then wrote what I want my mornings and weekdays to look like and from there wrote goals that would get me where I want to be. Once I had my goals in mind, I drafted tasks for this week that will help me reach my goals.

I’m hoping that after following my plan to change the make-up of my weekdays that I will create a new relationship with Mondays. One that will have me looking forward to each new day and the difference between my feelings for weekends and weekdays will be minimal.
Comment below and let me know what type of relationship you have with Monday mornings.

Read
This week I haven’t picked an audible book to listen to yet. I’m still reading The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette, and Manual of Politeness A Complete Book for the Use of the Lady in Polite Society by Florence Hartley. I’m planning to finish this soon and start The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod next. I think reading this book will help me get more ideas on how to change my Monday mornings. I have a cadence to my reading, I read three non-fictions then one fiction. Fiction is like the great dessert after a yummy meal.

Write
This week I’m cleaning up my first draft of my non-fiction (still working on a title) about my health scare. I have a fictional story running in my head that I can’t wait to get out, but I’m restraining myself until I finish the first draft of the book I’m currently working on. Every nook and cranny of open time I find this week will be dedicated to getting my first draft completed.

Create
Outside of writing and updating my bullet journal I haven’t done much to stretch my creativity. There are so many ways I could have flexed my creativity like trying a new recipe or a DIY project, but I just didn’t get around to it.

Live
This weekend I spent watching my son and youngest nephew try to tear the house down. The noise level those two can create is off the chain. If it wasn’t for Roblox and the ability for them to play online games together, I don’t think there would have been a moment when they would have sat still. My son’s paternal family reunion was on Saturday and we brought my nephew along. They ran and ripped, had a Bambi sighting, ate good food and slept all the way home. Needless to say I didn’t get much writing done this weekend, but I did retain my sanity, so there’s that.

That’s the skinny for this week. If you read any of the books I’ve mentioned or have some favorites you like to suggest, I would love for you to comment and share them.
