Today 100% all Monday.
I try to be as positive as I can when I post because if I think that way, Ill feel that way, and if I feel that way, I’ll be that way. You can’t live a positive life without a positive mind.
That being said, sometimes we just have Mondays and there are no lessons or morals, just the opportunity to wake up tomorrow with a different outlook.
Regardless, today was a Monday and it kind of sucked.
I woke up late, riddled with anxiety over all the things I have going on this week. I barely spoke all day with knots in my stomach. I tried to tackle projects that ended up being so time consuming I wasn’t able to cross anything off my to-do list. I completely forgot about an engagement I committed myself to tonight (after swearing up and down I would make it to the gym). I felt a wave of emotion come over me as I left the office, and as I watched a co-workers day get ruined after backing into another car, I lost it.
Literally for no reason other than seeing this older man crack his taillight.
I was greeted home by a very excited and poop covered dog, only to find she had made a diarrhea mosaic on my living room floor topped off with doo-doo puppy paw prints on my leather couches. I finally made it to my first meeting and was stopped mid-sentence realizing I had a smeared paw print of Lilly’s #2 on my vest. And I smelled like it too.
I finally made it home after 8, spent over an hour shampooing my carpets and sanitizing everything my little 6 lb. poo ball had scuttled across and threw her in the tub.
Ate an insanely late dinner, covered my floors in towels for the anticipated over-night accidents and decided to sit down and write. Because I am human, and nobody is perfect, and I can’t walk away from every day with a smile and a lesson learned. Some days you just have to take it for what it is. Especially Mondays after a long holiday weekend.
The plus side? My carpet is so clean you could eat off it (although I don’t know why you would ever want to do that..), my sweet girl smells good and is curled up next to me, and I made some new friends. Maybe my Monday wasn’t a total loss after all.
