Instead of looking at the glass as being half empty (or in the case of Monday almost totally empty), think of it as being half full or even overflowing on a Monday morning. Look at Monday as the first work day of a new week, a day to start fresh, to really get motivated and show the world what we can do. If we put the same energy in the work week as we do in what was meant originally to be a day to rest and have fun, we'll be ahead of the game in performing well and appreciating what our hard work gains for us in the end.
How do we change ourselves to always look at things positively?. We do so by actively analyzing how we respond and looking at them with a critical view to how they are seen by others and how they make us feel. Feelings can be changed but it takes self-assessment and most of us don't want to do that; we'd rather blame someone or something else for making us feel the way we do. Of all the forces available to help us change none can do it better than God, for when we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit, the third person of God who dwells within us, He can always provide us with what we need to do so. It is, however, up to us to ask Him for help and to then listen to the advice He gives. The response can come in many different ways and I'm not about to tell you how it will impact anyone else, but if we open your heart with faith and believe, He can work wonders and we will know, oh yes, we'll know.
Looking at things from the plus rather than the minus side of the equation will make us feel better, have less stress, be able to accomplish more and find happiness and joy. Really, folks, no one really wants to bring him or herself down but a heavy heart, a lack of love for self (which also will keep us from being able to love others) and the loss of motivation and brightness when we ourselves to reach that condition just plain brings us down. We have the ability to do a lot of things that we might think we can't, but with God and His love and grace working for us, we'll never have to feel that way again. Give it a try and we find it is amazing what it will do and, among other things, we'll never suffer from a Blue Monday again. Come on, go ahead and SMILE. It takes less work and it is pleasing to others as well as ourselves if we look in the mirror, so what do we have to lose?
