A Fresh Start to the Week


Every Monday, we wake up with a fresh start to the week. Somehow, it doesnt matter what happened the week before because not only is today a new day, today is a new week! And that is a good thing. Of course, we all have things happen”¦good and bad.

Sometimes the weekend gives us enough time to get rid of those “bad” things from the week before. And sometimes, if were lucky, were able to hold on to those “good” things and carry them through to the next week.

But it’s all about choices. Right?

We can choose to make a fresh start. Or not. We can choose to begin a new day, free of what happened the day before. Or not. We can choose to make excuses for the project weve been meaning to start but havent. Or not. Its actually pretty simple, when you think about it.

So, what will you choose today?

Here are a few inspirations to help you make your decision”¦

My pleasure Lola. I could really use the reminder today as well. And that’s actually why I decided to re-post it. So, we’re on the same page. Have a great week!

I love Monday posts! They’re so inspiring!

I totally agree that we have a choice to make each and every day about our attitudes, our decisions, and our plans. Of course things will come up that throw us for a loop at times, but in the end, it’s our choice as to how we handle each and every situation. I for one, want to be able to look back and say that I made good choices! Thanks Brittni!
