What Monday means…

Why do most of us hate Monday so much? Perhaps it’s because it marks the start of the workweek again. To the typical worker, we toil from Monday to Friday and rest Saturday and Sunday. Although to a lot of other people in other professions, this do not necessarily apply.

The weekends would never be enough, right? But maybe we can try to not blame it on Monday. After all, Mondays always mark beginnings. And with every new week we start fresh, we start anew. We leave whatever good and bad happened in the past week and start over again, a new week to hope for everything to turn out well.

I’ve also learned a few thing about Mondays from colleagues. Always wear red or something bright on a Monday, never black. I guess it’s a Chinese Feng shui thing, but come to think of it, some bright clothing can indeed bring a brighter outlook to the start of the week. Another Chinese business practice I learned is to never make any big spending on a Monday, so that the week will not be all about spending.

The message I want to get across is maybe we should appreciate Monday a little more. Beginnings should be enjoyed and seized, and Monday should not be an exception.
