thank god it’s monday

June 21st, 2010

Wouldn’t it be something if we really thought that way? TGIM! Par-tay!

Mondays have a peculiar weight, a sisyphean shock and awe. I see it even in the statistics of who and how many visit this blog:  the slog, the grind, the reluctant rewind, the slow dread motion of facing another week. A week that we might mistakenly think is nothing but a repeat of all the rest.

It might be a good day to start off with my latest Huffington Post read, “10 Tips for Mindful Work.” If you’ve read it before, make use of Monday’s momentum to read it all over again.

And take heart! Your first coffee break is here sooner than you thought. Spend the next 10 minutes sipping a cup of liquid love by listening to this short podcast with me at the New Dimensions Cafe.


Thanking her lucky stars it’s Monday is Rose in Amsterdam, whose time zone gives her a head start on every day of the week, and who also won the random drawing of Donna Hilbert’s Traveler in Paradise poetry collection from last week’s giveaway.

  1. Good afternoon (I’m already done with half of my Monday ;-)), I just noticed your blogpost and am so surprised to see my name in there! What a huge surprise – and a SUPER start of the week indeed!

  2. I think working for yourself really changes how Monday feels. At least to me. I dont mind it and it doesnt have the weight of a 9 to 5 job…
    I feel freeier and its peaceful

  3. I am incredibly fortunate – I love Mondays because it means I can get back to doing the work I love. 🙂

  4. what i love love love about my life, among the many gazillion things, is that mondays are another day flowing along with my children. yes, they have a monday body sense to them, maybe lingerings from out-in-the-world work days, yet i wake up with whatever i’m feeling, not a particular to monday feeling. if that makes any sense at all! i love you karen. thank you for reminding me of the beauty of this life.
