Nicholas Bate always has such positive things to say about Monday; it is, after all, just another day marked by a single revolution of our planet.
Yet, Monday is a construct, an artificial delineation, something upon which we have forced meaning and, in doing so, have come to resent.
Some of us working a traditional five day week resent/fear Monday's because we are not doing something we love, something we are passionate about, and that drags us down. It shouldn't.
There were things I wanted to say yesterday, observations I wanted to make, but couldn't bring myself to blog. It's a shame, dare I say a travesty - blogging is something I love and am passionate about but when Monday )and all its connotations) stops me from doing so I feel as though I've lost something inside.
I should blog despite and in spite of Monday, make Monday great again! Maybe, that will temper my feelings towards it and help set me up for the week in the right frame of mind.
If only blogging was my job. Would I still feel the same?
