Another Monday, another start of a week, another countdown to the weekend. This is all my life is at the moment.
I always thought that I would never be one of those people who succumbed to the pressures and routine of life. But alas, I have become one of those people, which goes to show that I’m just another human being.
I had more pride in myself while I was growing up. I had high ideals, wild ideas, and a passionate drive toward living life with a smile on my face.
Unfortunately, a series of life’s challenges pounded me to a pulp, even though I valiantly fought with every fiber of strength within me. Though I emerged victorious from all the challenges life boxed me with, they did a good job of tiring me out, rupturing my iron will, and smashing my rose-tinted glasses to smithereens (poor poor glasses of mine).
My heart and mind bear battle scars and wounds that burn wickedly when I attempt to soothe them. My soul is sitting quietly in a corner, trying to recuperate from the bashing and punches thrown its way by life.
It’s currently disoriented and fractured. It’s going to take a while before I feel whole again.
Till then, oh, it’s just another manic Monday!
Which reminds me, it’s a good day to hear it’s namesake song
This song makes me feel that I’m not the only one going through the routine of life. I guess we all identify with this song. For me, I identify most with the lines:
Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine.
And if I had an aeroplane
I still couldn’t make it on time.
‘Cause it takes me so long
Just to figure out what I’m gonna wear…
I guess that’s why people like Steve Jobs preferred wearing the same colour and style clothes everyday – does save a LOT of time.
Anyway, so how do you greet Monday? With a smile or a frown? Do you listen to any song to PEP up your Monday? Do share. Would love to hear from you.
