"just remember, even your worst days only have twenty-four hours."
24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. if you really think about it, a day isn't that much time at all. seconds go by with the single bat of an eyelash. minutes pass while sitting at that red light early in the morning drinking the first of many coffees of the day. an hour can be occupied by watching a single episode of saturday night live reruns on netflix. time passes by so quickly! why waste it dwelling on the fact that it's a monday?
instead of dreading going to work, start trying to look forward to talking to that cute coworker who makes your heart smile. rather than wishing you were sleeping while sitting in your first class of the week, be grateful that you even have the opportunity to receive an education. if you have some free time, look at cute pictures of animals if you're feeling a little gloomy (this is a sara wesson approved way of making ANY day better). or maybe just in the midst of a whole mess of things when your head is so occupied with hundreds of thoughts, take a minute to gather yourself together and just breathe. remembering to breathe every once in a while helps a lot.
focus your energy on making it a good day, instead of just trying to make it through to the next. i promise, it makes the day go by faster. and who knows, maybe you'll start wishing that your mondays would slow down a little bit so you have the opportunity to soak in the joys that it brings!
but if for some reason and despite all of your desperate attempts, this day just seems near impossible to get through and you don't know how you're possibly going to make it home in one piece, just remember that this day only has twenty-four hours. actually it probably has less, because you already conquered the other ones like the champ that you are. don't stress; you got this day in the bag.
happy monday, cuties!
documenting the fun years.
