My day

Do you like Mondays? Do they feel like a fresh start for you?

For a while I tried to make Mondays, "my day". Because I often work through the weekend I thought it would be nice to take Monday as a day off - a day that I could attend to the things around my own house. Like cleaning and paying bills, running errands or just catching up on a good book (have you read The Hunger Games yet???). 

But that didn't really work. It turns out that Mondays are just too busy of a day for taking any time off. 

I still haven't figured out what day 'my day' is yet. But I do like the idea of it. 
Happy Monday! xo

Perfect reminder that we all deserve a day or some "me time" as a toddler says "mine" - I we need not feel selfish or one bit of guilt.
A walk in nature or just taking time away from daily responsibilities gives us time to catch or breath.

Monday's do feel like a fresh start to me. I usually try to think about what's ahead for the week and get myself in order - organize, etc. I'd love a me day but that doesn't happen often (need to make that happen). I enjoy my hour lunch to myself during the week. I'll catch up on blogs or magazines or just run errands. Hope you had a nice weekend!

Sometimes I love Monday because it's a whole week of possibilities. Other times its overwhelming. I do love your new blog look, though! Hope you can stop by soon, I'd love to get your opinion at my blog!

I love that first quote. Going to pin it! Monday's are hard to take off. I know what you mean about working all the time. I spend a lot of time working on the weekends and I really need to stop. I'm trying to keep my office hours from 9-5 and then shut it down. So hard to do.

Marianne, 9-5? What a concept! Why am I working long into the early morning? xo
