A case of the Mondays

Raise your hand if you love Monday....

Yeah, that's what I thought. Nobody loves Monday. Monday steals our weekend. Monday makes us go back to school or work. Monday doesn't let us sleep in. Monday makes us regret watching Netflix til 2am. Monday makes us realize that after we hit the snooze button a few too many times, that you are late on your blog post (but that probably just me).

Monday has gotten a bad reputation, because well, we love our weekends! We love sleeping in and not having to go to work... right? 

We dread Monday all weekend, sometimes I have completely ruined my sunday, because I was so busy dreading monday. 

But I think each and every day is what you make of it. If you dread it, it probably will be terrible. But what would happen if you choose to look forward to the day? To not succumb to the power that Monday holds over you? What if we treated Monday with the expectations of Friday?

"I know today is Monday and you assume it's gonna suck, but according to statistics there will be over 5,000 weddings, 10,000 childbirths, and 42 million hugs occurring across the United States. There will be at least 4 people who win multi million dollar lotteries and 600 people who get a promotion at work. There will also be 600 dogs adopted 35,000 balloons sold, and 800,000 skittles eaten. The word I love you will be said over 9 million times. I know it's Monday, and you assume it's gone suck. But go ahead and smile, because according to statistics today should actually be a really nice day."

There is always a silver lining, always something good that happens over the course of the day. Let's look for the positive in Monday's, and maybe we can change Monday's reputation. 

And maybe, we will all have a really great day. 


  1. Oh girl. You were reading my mind. Mondays hurt. Ugh. But the stats you posted were great. And being a follower of God, I am so thankful for even the worse of days because I know he is here to pick me up and I can carry on. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Thanks for the comment Tammy! And I had to talk myself out of bed this morning... but I know each and every day I have a purpose! Thanks for reading

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
