|From Angel Aviles McClinton|
Monday’s traditionally get a bad rap.
On Monday, we have to part with the rest, fun & relaxation of the weekend. It can be depressing (especially if saying goodbye to a friend or parting with a lover.) On the other hand, maybe we had a weekend that was so packed, we’re exhausted. Having family obligations can sometimes mean that the weekend means more mental planning, financial duty and physical running about than any other time of the week. Whatever the case, we manage to make it to Monday.
But Monday’s suck.
We don’t like our jobs or we do like them but there’s an unreasonable amount of work waiting for us. We’re tired. We have yucky classes at school or… Or what? Somehow, we just can’t grasp the good of a Monday.
Monday Is — Moon’s day
Middle English monday or mone(n)day. Old English mon(an)dæg. Latin dies lunae or Ancient Greek hemera selenes; “day of the moon”
When it’s dark, a shimmering globe of light, hangs in our sky. This light makes the night a bit less scary and if we really let it, it can even make the night, beautiful. The Moon is cool. Religions, cults, myths and legends have sprung up around the moon and although I’m talking about turning “manic Monday’s” into “magic Monday’s,” I’m really talking about PERCEPTION.
The start of ANY magical day is:
- The immediate or intuitive recognition of the good of this moment and in me.
- Understanding by means of the senses or of the mind, what it means to start fresh in mind, body and spirit
Later on, I’ll post more about specific ways I stimulate my senses in order to stay healthy and positive.
