so one of the funniest movies ever for those of us who work in an office is the movie "office space". and one of the best quotes from the movie is "somebody has a case of the mondays"
i've blogged about how when you work 7 days a week, monday is just another day and it's not a big deal. that being said, there is "something" about mondays that i do dread. having to wake up early, knowing that everything will be nuts as soon as i walk into the door at my office, just having to get back into a routine, it's not always a fun thing to look forward to
but when you only have 7 mondays left to work at your current office, your perspective changes a bit
now that i have only 6 mondays left, here are my 3 (good) things about my mondays
1) the new iPhone software that i just recently upgraded to has one of many very cool features. the alarm clock now plays a song from your music on your phone. therefore, waking up to a song off the new matchbox twenty album as opposed to the obnoxious old phone ringing sound is actually not a bad thing. it certainly makes a difference on a monday
2) going to church on sunday, where i experience powerful worship and hear a message that convicts me or encourages me, i often find myself recharged, refreshed and encouraged that i'm not the only one out there facing the battles i face. so why do i just as often lose that charge in less than 24 hours? if my perspective is focused on the right thing, then i do find myself excited to face the week.
3) for the next 7 weeks, each monday that passes brings me one week closer to seeing my nieces ALL the time. how can anything else compare with that??
so for me, i promise right here and now, that for the next 6 weeks, i, rachael, will NOT have a case of the mondays :)
can you say the same thing???
