Sometimes you just have one of those perfect Mondays. You wake up feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to tackle your week like it's nothing, and from the moment you step out of the bed, everything just falls right into place like it's supposed to.
I had just that kind of morning today. Got up to train my early am client, and when I stepped outside, it was a gorgeous morning (even though it was still a bit dark!). Nice, peaceful, thoughtful walk to the track where I train her, and before I knew it, we were done. Even though it was as nice a morning as it was, there weren't many people out.
On my way home from our training session, I decided that I felt like some pancakes today. I haven't had those in such a long time, but for some reason, they popped right into my brain this morning, demanding that I not forget how good they used to be to me. So, I sat down and had myself a plate at the diner by my house with a huge glass of milk, just like I did when I was a little girl. That was my absolute favorite thing, pancakes and a big glass of milk, and I remember how I used to make sure every inch of pancake was saturated with syrup before I ate it.
I didn't hold back on the syrup this morning, either! Hell, I'm gonna go big, or just not go at all!
Do you know that after my lovely little breakfast, I felt so good that on my way home I began to skip? Yep! A few folks looked at me as if to say "what the hell???", but I didn't care. It feels good to skip. You should try it sometime! Happy little leaps that send you bouncing down the street like a happy little ball. After a few of those happy little hops, you realize why kids do it all the time. Skipping every now and then is something I highly recommend. In fact, I think I made my client skip this morning. Hers were not the happy kind, though! ;)
So, now I get home and start my web tasks, which are many! I have to say, though, I do love Monday! Simply because I don't work on Monday (with the exception of that one client). No classes to teach, no commute, no need to pull any wicked choreography out of my pocket to thrill and amaze my class members, no brainstorming on the next way to try to kill 'em in the weights class. No having to put someone in check for trying to talk on their cell phone in class (the nerve!), or for being super late. Nothing but a long, relaxed, complete and total ME day, where I get to do whatever the hell I please! Trying REAL hard to get MORE Mondays in my life! ;)
When your week starts off right, you feel like you can rule the world. Well, at least your little corner of it. I'm hoping that you all have a good Monday and wonderful start to your week as well. And if not, well...there's always Tuesday! ;) Have a great week! :D
