New day, new opportunity. New Monday, new Monday story.
This is also the line this week’s story ends with. Isn’t that just awesome?
It’s that time of the year when even though all you want to do is go out and enjoy the feeling of spring approaching, you can’t. Because you have to study. You guessed it. It’s midterms week(s).
This week we’re having the part two of the story one of my classmates shared with us last week. His name is Becks and he is, and I keep repeating this, the most positive person I’ve ever met! I’m sure that by the end of this story you’ll understand why.
”I don’t have any specific points on Monday. I believe every day can be a Monday. And every day can be weekend as well. It all depends on you. You can wake up in the morning and decide that you feel like pissing out everybody that day. And you would do it. And if you have this idea about Mondays being horrible. Being days where everything is negative. Days you have a lot of stuff to do. Then you can think about every other day the same way. The only difference is the name. Because you still go to sleep and wake up. There is still a day time and a night time. Everything is the same.
What I personally think about Mondays is, I don’t. I try not to. I try to see every day as an opportunity. Of course, there can be good or bad opportunities. And a new day is a new opportunity to wake up and do things. To have a bath. Or have a breakfast even though most of the time I don’t (laughs). Or talk to my friends. Or tell my flatmate ‘’Good morning’’. Or not to. Not to go to school. Not to talk to friends. To be pissed. To hate everyone. Or do whatever it is you want to. It’s an opportunity.
And even though sometimes I do wake up and feel bad and pissed. And feel like I could go and yell on people or whatever. I choose not to. Because there are people who are dead. Or sick. Or don’t have anything to eat. Or don’t have a place to sleep. And when I think of them I see how fortunate I am. I feel I shouldn’t abuse it by being grumpy.
It’s ok to be mad, or frustrated, this is just us being human, right? But I just choose not to. Why? Because, why not? Who needs negative energy? There’s enough hate, violence and negativity in the world. Why add to it? Waking up and seeing a Monday as a bad day is just an opportunity to make the world more miserable. Why would I want to do that?
I just want to be known as that guyed that was different. That guy who even though he had difficult times, still managed to smile and laugh. And he was super cool about it. This is how I want to live my life and how I try to do it every single day.
That is how I feel about Mondays. I don’t feel about Mondays. I just look at Mondays as another day, as another opportunity.”
