the ‘monday blues’ do not exist! Mondays only suck if you let them- accept what you can’t change and change what you can’t accept.
whether it’s your career, your relationships, or even something you want to change within yourself, start by making a CONSCIOUS effort to be positive with your actions, expressions, and words. positivity breeds positivity. don’t dwell on the negative and what went wrong. break the habit. talk about your joys and count your blessings! and if what went wrong is worth it, fix it, but keep building and focusing on the NEW.
