It’s all a matter of perception. Why do we feel terrible on Mondays but feel great on Fridays?
Sure, I understand that Monday is the first day of the week, ie. time for work, and Friday is the last day of work, ie. no work tomorrow.
But compare the way you feel on Monday morning with the way you feel on Friday morning. They are very different feelings indeed, and yet you still have the same full days work ahead of you on both of these days. So regardless of whether the next day is a work day or not, you still have a full days work ahead of you today. You still have to complete your normal duties today, you still need to complete your normal number of hours today.
Yes but Saturday I don’t have to work, I hear you say. Hey, I hear you, but you’re living in the future, you’re not living in the now, in the present. But if I live in the now I will realise I have a full days work ahead of me. Yes, you will, but how was it that even though you had a full days work on both of these days, you were still able to wake up happy and excited on one of them?
Simple, you chose to.
YOU chose to be happy on Friday, and YOU chose to be miserable on Monday. That’s right, YOU CHOSE.
And you chose to do this through your own perception of what each of these days means to you, even though they are both the same. You chose to be miserable on Monday because you chose to perceive Monday as the start of 5 more bloody days of work, even though there will be 5 more the following week, and the week after that, and the week after that, and after that. But you also chose to be happy on Friday, because you chose to perceive it as the last day of work, like as if you were never ever going to work again in your life!
You need to change your perception, your view. You need to realise that you created your perception in the first place, and therefore that you can change it… to what ever you like!
Imagine every day was Friday…
