M is for Monday


It’s day M of A to Z, and it’s also Monday. So today, I’m giving love to this much-loathed day of the week.

Monday has a bad rap. Having a case of the Mondays means you’re feeling down and sluggish. Songs like “Monday, Monday” and “Manic Monday” are not exactly happy tunes. And I get it. For the Mon. to Fri. work week/school week, Monday is the end of a far too short weekend, and the start of five days of work/school. And there are certainly times where I have the case of the Mondays, too!

But what about all the people that don’t work Monday to Friday? For a lot of people, Monday is mid-week, end of week, or even the weekend! And, have you ever been a part of a project that was really exciting, and you were excited for Monday to tackle it again? How about being in school, and having a Monday field trip? Or better yet, a huge crush you didn’t get to see on the weekend, but could finally adore again on Monday?

For my writer friends…while some agents, publishers, editors, etc. will respond on the weekends, many don’t. So when you’re obsessively refreshing your inbox, isn’t Monday great?

It’s a new week, and a new chance for opportunity. The mail comes again, the banks are open, and the world settles once more into weekday life, which has always been a favourite of mine. So here, on this Monday, I just want to appreciate this battered day of the week.

Happy Monday, everyone!
