When you go into a day dreading what you have ahead of you, it's very likely that day will be a bad one. I have to stop myself from playing the comparison game and wishing my life was like hers or like his. Why? What I see of their lives may be the very best part of it or a facade. Why wish for something that could actually end up being worse than where you currently are?
I am currently home on medical leave due to spinal surgery. Sounds like fun times filled with Netflix and easy access to snacks and puppy snuggles, but every situation comes with its own challenges. For me it's pain and limited ability to do my daily routine. I haven't been able to workout (which most of you know is making me crawl out of my skin); I struggle with driving to the store for groceries or getting the trash into my car to take it to the dump. And, then there are the pain and pain meds (the pain is, well, painful, but the medication makes me feel like a zombie).
We all have demons we fight, we all have hurdles to overcome, and we all have those things, people, or animals that bring smiles to our faces and warm our hearts. Lean on them and work to build a network that can lift you up when you do have a bad Monday.
But, for today, this is going to be a good Monday. I can feel in. I'm inviting you to join me in having s really good Monday.
