I am sure you’ve seen those “dreading Monday” photos. You know, the ones that bemoan the fact that a new work week is here. Like this one…
Well I used to collect those and shared them with friends too; they often producing the desired effect – laughter and commiseration.
This was a favourite…
Then one day a thought crossed my mind. What am I actually spreading?
Instead of being happy that my life had been spared to see the start of a new week, or feeling blessed that I have a job to go to so that I could earn a living and meet my needs, I was spreading a negative poison.
Does it mean that I can’t have a laugh if I come across one of those quotes/pictures?
Off course not.
But I can choose not to dwell on it to the point where I get depressed since midday Sunday (yes I’ve been there).
I can choose not to share it with friends because I do not know if I may be making a bad situation worse.
Either way, I will be doing my friends a lot more good by sharing something that is positive and uplifting.
So…may your week be a blessed and productive one.
