Just Another Maniacal “Moon” Day

“Sometimes it pays to stay in bed in Monday, rather than spending the rest of the week debugging Monday’s code”
-Dan Salomon

It’s Monday again and if I had one wish I would make it Wednesday.

Well not really, but I really do hate Mondays.

Mostly because that means we have to go back to work and continue on with our daily routine that makes us wish for a way out, but let’s say the weekend was Wednesday and Thursday; would our “Monday” be a Friday or does that particular day of the week have some inevitable energy? We wake up and we instantly feel the dread, hoping that our clocks were accidentally set a few hours ahead and going back to sleep. Then we go to work and the temptation to walk back out is ever so strong.
I (and perhaps everyone living) have noticed how we seem to be stuck in the most peculiar situations on this day, where dysfunctional people roam and luck turns sour. I have heard countless stories of how their keys walk off into toilets, impassable writer’s blocks that gives hematoma-producing migraines, cars committing suicide, and boiling coffee plunging into people’s laps.
They don’t blame their neighbors, nor on invisible leprechauns, but indirectly and/or directly the blame will point to the mysterious entity known as “Monday”. Just like on my way to work, I lost my badge that allows access into the facility. I didn’t hesitate in blaming the day of the week instead of a faulty clip, I firmly believed that this irrefutable energy had altered luck to piss me off.

Part paranoia–part wise ignorance. (Wha-?)

Just another typical Monday.

If we didn’t have Monday to blame on our circumstances I’m sure the world would be in more chaos than it is now.

So what can we do to change this attitude that this day has brought for centuries? By convincing (or brainwashing) ourselves to think Monday is “Happy day” instead of “Depressed day” like it’s been known for. Do something uplifting like some mediation or Yoga, eat something you love, play some Bejeweled on Zen mode, sing a few Plain White T’s songs while taking a soothing bubble bath (judging others is frowned upon…), or buy something you’ve been wanting for a while.
All and many other things can change the way you look at Mondays and deflect the bad energy that makes you hate the world in it’s entirety…maybe.
