How to Beat the Monday Blues
Let's face it, the majority of us dread Mondays. We hate that the weekend has come to an end and that we have to face jobs and bosses we particularly would rather not work for. But why is that? Why is Monday the most hated day of the week? So, think about it for a second... if you were doing what you absolutely loved and wanted to do, would you hate Monday or would it just be another day of the week? Just like many, I am at the point where I don't particular care for Mondays; simply because I know there's more and I want more! What do I mean by that?

Some call it following your passion, I believe it's walking in your purpose. We as a society have been conditioned to think that we must get an education [which I believe is the key to freedom], get a good paying job, and raise a family. That for most is the "American dream", but is that truly your purpose in life? Don't get me wrong these things are important to obtain some satisfaction in life, but there is so much more to enjoy and do. But how we do walk in our purpose and let go of the 'Monday blues"?
It's listening to your gifts. Some are naturally gifted in math or analytics while others are creative and artistic. These are little gifts bestowed upon us that we must listen to. Think about what you enjoy, what comes naturally and make a list of those things. If you could do that daily, would it bring you joy? If so, that's what you should be doing. That's walking in your purpose. When you couple your passion with your talents, that's a marriage that leads you on the path to walking in your purpose.
I have identified my talents along with passion and I believe I am on the path to walking in my purpose. I wish nothing but the best for each person reading this and that we together will no longer dread Monday and live out the best lives we can.
