Motivation Monday: Truth is like the sun…

Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away. ~ Elvis Presley

Sometimes I like to shut Monday out. Make believe it’s Tuesday or even Thursday, just because I can. But reality always shows up on Tuesday morning when it’s not magically Wednesday or Friday. For me, sitting in the reality of Monday is better than being smacked in the face with Tuesday on a should-be-Friday.

When I sit in the fantasy that it’s not what day it really is, or I’m not sitting where I really am, or I don’t have the responsibilities I really do, I spend minutes moments and monologues in a make believe land where there are no such things as Mondays, where weekends last forever ,and I’m six or nine or twelve years old, back when I didn’t have all the adult responsibilities I longed for so much.

At the end of the minute, moment, monologue, I’m right back in Monday, as if it never left. As if it were right here all along. As if I were thirty-hmmfphm years old, with all the adult responsibilities worked so hard to create in my life.

And then I’m reminded to get busy living or get busy dying.

Choose to show up to the day that’s actually here, and then choose how to show up here.

I want this day to be short and sweet and clean, and sometimes that’s just not what Mondays look like.

It’s time to be okay with that because they ain’t goin’ away.
