Monday, Monday…

SOMETHING BRIGHT TO WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY WEEK!!!!! 🙂

This Monday sure started with a bang!

Well, maybe not quite as dramatic as that… But it was definitely a different kind of Monday to the ones I normally have.

I have been busy from 10 am until after 6 pm today, which is quite something! Then, of course, I still had to take Miss Daisy for a walk. I had a glass of wine outside, and now I am making myself some supper. Chill time!

As much as I enjoy a day of doing nothing, I love having a day like today. Busy enough, but not so that I feel run off my feet.

I wasn’t looking forward to this week, but it started off on a positive note, so I am hoping it will continue in that vein. If it does, I’ll be a happy camper. 🙂

I recently talked to somebody about the importance of being able to control your thoughts when you are feeling negative or alone. It is not an easy thing to do. I still battle with it, but I haven’t had a lot of practice yet. I used to mope. Feel sorry for myself. I only recently started believing that only I could make myself feel better. I do now believe that the power of positive thinking is priceless. I think that once you feel your thoughts going into a dark place, you have to try your best to rein them in, and coax it in a positive direction.

It needs discipline and perseverance. But once you consistently keep at it, I think it becomes easier, and eventually it happens automatically.

I sometimes have to pull myself up by my bootstrings, but it works. The times that it doesn’t work, I get active. Or I get into my car and drive somewhere, preferably where there are people.

Today, fortunately, I didn’t need that. It was a positive day, even if it was a Monday!!

I know some of you are done with Monday, some of you are right in the middle or your day. Mine is ending now, but I thought I’ll gift you this ‘ancient’ little song, to ease your Monday into a pleasant one.

You’re welcome! 🙂

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)

  1. Hi Zelmare,
    I can identify with trying to keep negative thoughts under control. It’s so easy for them to get a foothold and take charge of your day. Good for you in catching yourself and making a new pattern of positive thoughts.
    Best to you for the rest of the days of this week!
    Connie
