“I can’t believe it’s Monday again. ‘Course the days all seem to blend together anymore. How am I going to gather myself to participate? How will I survive?”
I can’t think of too many people who couldn’t use a pep talk going in to any day of the week.
But Monday for someone enduring a mood or anxiety disorder? You gotta’ be kidding me!
So let’s see what we can do to get you going!
Okay! “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”
Come on, you know I’m kidding, right?
The Best of Intentions
My intention really isn’t to somehow convince you that Monday isn’t an insurmountable day. Any day, for that matter.
If you ask me, that’s trite and insulting.
So how ’bout this? Between your article comments, forum posts, and emails; I know life doesn’t come easy for a lot of chipur readers.
There’s depression, anxiety, panic, hopelessness, desperation, physical pain, strained and broken relationships, and so much more.
Any set of traditional and supposed magical words would bounce off you like so many ping pong balls.
The Brightest Dawns
So I’m going to offer you this for today…
I know your pain and I empathize. Putting a day together is no small task, but putting a day together – a Monday – is everything you need to do.
It may likely be difficult, and you may crawl your way back to bed in short order. But there’s every possibility this will be the day you emerge.
Don’t ever forget the brightest of dawns follow the darkest and stormiest nights.
So take your Monday, and the rest of your week – and squeeze from them all you can.
