Dawn of a new day
Today the government get's its due rewards. Yet
in reality tax day is but another day. One just like
every other. Yet for many reasons every Monday
is anything but ordinary. The start of a new week.
The first day back at work. A kickoff to renewal.
Or a return to the mundane. While some think
different in name only, Mondays are unique and
unto themselves. Hence today is a time to start
anew.  To initiate a project you've dreamed about.
Or clean up a mess you've left behind. A chance
to get back to work post a weekend of relaxation
or revelry. And hopefully accomplish something.
The only question being what will you do today?
Ready to launch
Most of us charge out of the gate ready to win.
Afresh post one's morning toilette most of us
know what has to be done. Thus we hop on a
bus, jump onto the subway, or drive to office
with anticipation. However for some the day
is one we dread. All because we must return
to the scene of the crime. The place where we
know in our heart of hearts we don't belong.
Ready to be tortured for five days before we
finally get a reprieve late Friday. Hence not
all Mondays are about sunshine and lollipops.
Rather for some they are nothing but a harsh
reminder of all thats wrong with their world.
Either or...
Where is your head at on this fine Monday?
Are you happy, empowered, and energized?
Or depressed, trapped, and a bit demoralized?
Either way your choice is to succeed or fail.
Today is an opportunity to make a difference.
To seize the moment and start to change life
for the better. When stuck in a bad situation
you have two options. Suffer or escape. And
while I realize that the prospect of not getting
a paycheck may be terrifying - being stuck in
a losing proposition is an exercise in futility.
But maybe all that you need is an attitude
adjustment. A change that's for the BETTER.
Get up and go!
With the dawn of any day comes the opportunity
to make a difference. To reset you mind and put
your affairs in order. If anybody is to blame for
failure or success it's you. So why not use today
to do something about it?! To step back and see
all of your options. In the end doing nothing reaps
just that... nothing. It's amazing what a change of
heart can do. Simply deciding to take a different
path is the first step in redemption. Once you've
drawn that new line in life's sand, you can slowly
move in the right direction whatever it is. Could
it be that this is in fact the first Monday of the rest
of your life. Imagine that...  A FRESH START...
