Sharing the lessons along the way…

Mondays are Ok


Ok MondayI have gotten into the habit of spending my Sunday evenings mentally preparing myself for the week ahead. I find this to be a good practice for several reasons. One reason is that I am resting while I am doing it. Another reason is because my weeks lately have seemed a bit more stressful than I would prefer.

As you’ve probably noticed, my weeks definitely start out with perspective. I really believe it is related to my Sunday evening ritual. After a restful weekend, I tend do better for longer into the week with perspective.

I am a bit frustrated with this week before it begins. So I had to spend some extra time last night shifting my perspective from frustration, to frustration-tolerance building lessons.

I have to trust that the universe and the people in my life have my back, and that no matter what happens this week, everything will be okay. I have more tasks to complete than I feel I am going to have time for, but I know what needs to get done the most will find a way to get done.

On my Sunday evening time to myself, I focused on the other weeks that have been similarly crazy. And I reminded myself that everything worked out okay. Not only did they work out okay, but I remember wondering by Thursday night, why was so stressed at the start of the week.

My weeks start out automatically busy because my students submit their assignments on Sundays. I have one day to grade early in the week, which also happens to be my most flexible day to schedule appointments. On top of appointments, I am also involved in a required time-intensive training for my classes this week that will determine whether I get offered courses to teach in 2014.

So, I spent the evening reminding myself that it’s all okay. There is no life or death situation that I’m aware of this week, so ok is the only option.
