Fighting Monday morning blues


After a weekend jam packed with activities – ballgames, class reunion, house full of guests – I felt strangely bummed out this a.m.


No matter how wonderful times are, seems Monday always rolls around to jerk you back to reality.

This may shock you, but I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It’s more critical than my past, my intelligence level (or lack thereof). It is more important than my bank account, my successes or failures, fame or pain, or what other people think.

The attitudes we bring to each day keep us on track or trip us up. Our choice. It fuels the fire of desires and intentions or blunts our hopes and dreams. 

When our attitudes are right, there’s no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too outrageous.  So, I’m putting in for a small attitude adjustment before I greet the day.  Join me?

  1. Emily, you are right on target for healthy living ! The only component I could add is count your special friends each day. They add so much to the richness of our lives.

  2. My Uncle, Lee Earl Hill, Jr., taught me long time ago I should start each day by asking God to help me to be a blessing in someones life today and when asked “How are you?” the answer is “On top of the world!”….Life is good. Sorry Edwin and I missed the reunion…hope you all do it again some day.

  3. I recently attended my 50th high-school class reunion. It was what I call
    a “one in a lifetiime experience”. We laughed, told stories, hugged each
    other and shed a few tears. I didn’t want the evening to end.
