It’s Monday morning and who wants to go to work? Really, who wants to leave their weekend behind and embrace the repetitive mundane?
Well, that is indeed one way to look at it.
Or, we can adjust our thinking. Why would we want to do that?
Monday is going to happen whether you are on board or not; whether or not you jump in with your game face, or drag in, hauling your coffee with your IV hookup.
The fact is you can choose; what a great gift. You can choose to live with a good, great, or excellent attitude, or you can choose not to. Too much for a Monday morning? That’s why I waited until now to send this.
Choice is a gift from God. I think he holds it as one of his highest values. He must; it is what makes us human.
Don’t give your choice away to someone or something that will marshal it for another cause. You’ve been given the gift, so use it.
Choose to live well, to hope strong, to have faith that God has ‘got this’ and knows where you are at, and what needs to happen next.
Don’t settle for being pushed around by a Monday or anything else that wants to usurp your gift.
You get to choose. So, choose by choice, not by default or any other imposed criteria.
We get to make a choice, so, Happy Monday! You are alive and ‘Get to.’
