When Monday comes …

The last three years has been some what of a blur for me, my head space feels like an ever swerving maze. Full of ideas, hopes and enticing paths to follow, but none of them seems quiet right for me.

So when another Monday comes calling and I still don’t have the answer, I’ll take a leaf from Maya Angelou …

And until I know what fits perfectly well, I’ll smile and do the best I can with all I have.

I’ll be grateful for life and all it’s mystery.

I’ll write,  I’ll read; I’ll keep searching and I’ll keep applying.

And when I know better, I’ll do better and I’ll write about it.

Good morning everyone. XD

Good Monday as well 😉

And good mental health. 😎

 

 

Monday lessons from OH.

Lesson 1: Don’t run from things/an enemy when you are not sure why you’re running. Try to face your fears, you might find that they are not as scary as you think. For example, the Boov kept running from the Gorg, they never stopped to ask why.

Lesson 2: be careful what conclusions you draw from circumstances without having all the facts available. Granted in everyday life the facts are never fully at our disposal and we often have to make decisions with what’s available. As long as we try our best to be fair and to apologise when we get it wrong we should be fine. Example: OH and other Boovs assumed the Gorg was a ‘taker’ and by his destructive sadmad behaviour it seemed to be true, eventually OH discovered this was not the truth.

Lesson 3: living in constant fear deprives you of great friendships and opportunities. Granted, there are times when it pays to listen to your fears and handle things with caution. Example: Tip applying make-up on OH to camouflage his identity. (The most hilarious scene in the movie in my opinion.)

Lesson 4: choose a path you’re comfortable with and stick to it. This doesn’t mean you settle for less or become lazy. It means being willing to face your fears and enlarge your mind at a pace that doesn’t leave you constantly breathless (please note the word constantly because some things will require more effort than usual, but I don’t think that should be your constant setting.). Example OH wasn’t ready to stay with Tip when the Gorg was coming, she wasn’t ready to leave her mum and preferred to stay regardless of the outcome.

Lesson 5: sometimes we might have to go our separate ways or spend some time on our own to grow and become all we can be. When done properly we might bring something new to the table. Example: OH came back as the captain of the Boovs it empowered him to help Tip find her mum. It also helped him fix the issue with the Gorg.  If people are meant to be in your life they will eventually come around.

Have an awesome Monday people. And even if something has less than 50 percent probability for success don’t give up you might find the ‘super chip’.

Confessions of the day.

Both prayed and signed the cross “In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”  The amen was said in unison.

Silence.

“May the Lord renew your heart, helping you confess your sins with true sorrow.”

“Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been six days since my last confession.”

“I have caused the death of  five people just in this region: one through a car crash, another had a heart attack while shaving. It’s not clear how the others died, but I know it’s linked to me.

“Thirty six people relapsed into depression, when they noticed my presence. Children weep at the mere thought of my arrival and this really breaks my heart.The only ones who seem happy to see me are divorce lawyers and bar tenders. The actions of the weekend brings customers trooping in their multitudes. Father what do I do?

“My child, how is it that you have caused all this to happen, how are you in many places at once?”

“That is the problem father, I am not there in person most of the time, some of it just happens at the thought of my being there.”

“Then I do not think the blame lies solely at your feet, perhaps it is the thought of their hearts and fear that has snared them my child.”

“I know you are probably right father, but I can’t help how I feel. I want to change my name, I want to be known as Nouday or Nueday: maybe if my name evokes the idea of freshness or a new beginning perhaps people won’t fear so much.”

“I do not think this will help very much as people have become accustomed to the present cycle; the change must come from within.”

“But my current name sounds like mourning or moon, a very sober name especially coming after the Sunny day. A new name might help a little.”

“Then so be it my child, but I must say I fear people will still continue in their belief.”Memories


Sorry if you had to read this early when it wasn’t complete. I scheduled it and hadn’t completed it yet. So do you think Monday stands a chance with a new name?

Monday’s back

Monday never sneaks up on us, it walks in bold and beautiful like the boss we all dread, but can’t help respect.

Definitely not like Tuesday, the human resource manager of the week who tries to calm you down, letting you know Monday doesn’t have the right to walk all over you.

Sadly, Wednesday swiftly comes in ruffling our feathers again; the bosses PA spying on you, keeping you focused on the task at hand.

And just before we lose our heads Thursday sneaks in, teasing and tickling our haunched shoulders into a smile.

Fast and furious like a passing tornado, Friday storms into the scene taking over from Thursday; emptying our pockets and sweeping us off our feet into ecstasy.

Crazy Saturday … need I say more, the boss is well and truly forgotten.

Then reality comes knocking it’s confused Sundays: you don’t want to let Saturday go, but you know Monday won’t stand for any silliness if you want your wallet full for cheerful Friday.

Just let it go … brace up to Monday, Friday will be back in your arms as fast and as furious as ever.Memories
