Yesterday at church the pastor talked about the power of human emotions and how one small negative thought in the morning can set us all up for a less than good day. This idea is very relevant to today as it is Monday morning. The day that practically everyone hates and dreads because it never seems to run smoothly. Something unfortunate always happens on Mondays, or we are on edge all day waiting for that “bad” thing to occur that we do not enjoy the day because we are too busy worrying about what may happen. I myself am guilty of this very thing, come Sunday night all I can think of is negative thoughts which in turn will reflect on how I perceive the next day. One of the bible verses that was discussed yesterday stated:
” A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit” – Proverbs 15:13
Even if you are not a religious person, I think that this verse is relevant to everyone. If we go around with negative thoughts, our actions and how we perceive each situation will be less than ideal. But if we wake up on Monday morning and think of 5 things to be happy about our positive outlook will radiate for the entire day. So instead of dreading on Sunday night about Monday morning, lets look at Monday as a fresh start with new opportunities.
