It's Monday again.
Now, I've never been much of a Monday-fan - perhaps conditioned to dislike it from bygone days of having to go to school? - but Mondays do have some positive connotations, too (believe it or not).
They are the start of something new, a beginning, almost like a new chance.
In my case, a new chance to get sorted. Weekends have this weird effect on me. I'm not the most organised person to begin with, but on weekends, things go haywire. Daily routine is abandoned, to-do lists are ignored, chores put off till later (or Monday, as it were). Particularly if the weather's nice outside.
Now, you might shake your head and give me a disappointed sigh on that, but there it is. Weekends are a toxic wonderful mixture of too much time and too little planning.
I love it, I really do. Social life happens, the weather's great for sports, nobody from the office calls with new problems/tasks/catastrophes, I get to sleep in (and as anyone who knows me can tell you, I am so not a morning person)....
Great stuff, but fairly chaotic.
I cannot make up my mind whether this is a good thing or not. I've always thought that without a certain amount of chaos, life is unbearably dull (a certain small amount of chaos, mind you). At least that's the way I've always functioned best. I can only ever organise myself up to a certain point.
This, then, is where the new beginning comes into play.
I've made some Monday Resolutions (who needs a new year?):
+ I will get organised (during the week) so that I can fully
(and without any guilt) enjoy my chaotic weekends.
+ I will not let chaos seep into my working week.
+ I will consider writing real work and organise that, too.
+ I will not despair if my schedule turns out over-ambitious
(it always does)
There, I think that covers it all. Like I said, a new week, a new beginning, another chance.
Any resolutions of your own? Any suggestions of what I should add? Don't be shy now, let me know!
