Monday is Magnificent

Updated on December 16, 2012

Happy Monday!

I feel the need to give Monday a shout-out. Monday is the most detested day of the week. I sympathize for the day.

From Sunday evening until Tuesday morning Monday gets verbally abused. If we seriously consider it, do you think Monday REALLY wants to be Monday?

I bet it would prefer to be any other day, but it's stuck. It can't change it's name. But I bet it would, if it could. It'll always be Monday. Dreaded Monday. I sympathize for Monday.

A fair majority of us anticipate the upcoming weekends. Relaxing, family time, no work and then comes Monday. Ugh.

Maybe if the weekend went from Saturday and ended on Monday it would be better BUT then we would detest Tuesday. I would then be dedicating this article to Tuesday, but I'm not. It's all about Monday.

We arise on Monday tired. We really want to just pull the covers over our head and wish it was Tuesday, one day closer to the weekend. We demand more weekend time. It doesn't happen. We need someone or something to blame, so we blame Monday.

Poor Monday. So defenseless and innocent. It's just doing what it's been trained to do. It's following Sunday and right before Tuesday. It didn't ask to be the bad guy. Monday is stuck. Monday unlike its counterparts is just unfortunate with it's place in line.

M - Magnificent
O - Optimistic
N - Nice
D - Delightful
A - Amazing
Y - Yummy

Cheers for Monday!

Monday: Ugh is it really Monday? I don't like Mondays.
Tuesday: Yay, it's not Monday!
Wednesday: Happy Hump Day! Two more days until the weekend!
Thursday: WOOHOO one more day until Friday!
Friday: TGIF!!!! Let the weekend begin!
Saturday: I love Saturday!
Sunday: The best day of the week!
Monday: Ugh GO AWAY Monday!

Monday can be magnificent if we changed our way of thinking a bit.

Monday: I love Monday! A fresh start with exciting challenges ahead of me!
Tuesday: Oh I miss Monday
Wednesday: Happy Hump Day!
Thursday: 4 more days until Monday
Friday: TGIF! Life is good.
Saturday: Enjoying the day, excited for Monday!
Sunday: Super Sunday! Almost Monday...woot!
Monday: I LOVE MONDAY!

The Bangles - Manic Monday

Memo to Monday:

I tried to get people on your side. Not sure it will be successful. Wishful thinking. Oh Monday. We understand it's not your fault. We would detest Tuesday-Sunday too if they were in your spot!

You surely got the short end of the stick with your line-up. Don't take it personal, well try not to.

If you think about it, there are actually some Mondays we appreciate. Labor and Memorial Day and any other day a holiday falls on a Monday.

There you go, you're not that bad. Chin up Monday! I got your back. Kinda. Sorta. I won't do time for you. Just sayin'.

How about a shout-out to Monday?

      Great shout out for Monday...when you consider that you spend 1/7 of your life in Monday....you really need to learn to appreciate Monday. Monday offers lots of great things....17 weeks a year....Monday night offers football....also if you never start your work week with Monday ...the weekend will never come. Great hub...nice and funny....great cartoon with true facts....awesome job Sunshine 625. Voted up and funny and awesome.

      Well sunshine, me personally have never really hated Mondays, no seriously it's the beginning of a great new week, and I agree it's always gotten a bad rap by people. I guess the only time when I didn't care too much for Mondays was when I worked (hehe), but I also remembered when my kids were little I couldn't wait for it to come around to send them off to school. Whatever the case may be Monday is not as bad as people make it out to be. Happiness is what you make it, whatever day of the week it is I guess...Im always happy :) great hub voted up as usual have a great awsome Monday!!!:) ge

      I love this Hub, talk about timely!!!! Happy Monday!!

      I stopped working the traditional work week of Monday - Friday in 2008 following the issues with Osteoarthritis. I worked as a Quality Control Manager and Orientation Director for a Marketing Research Firm, I began to dislike EVERY day they were all the same. When Friday came I was already thinking about how I did not want to go to work Monday!!!! Seriously, it was that bad, so I never enjoyed the weekends.I really missed the days when I looked forward to go to work everyday. The only times I did not want to go to work on Monday, before the last position was when I had gone party'n on Sunday night, of course I no longer do the party'n thing. I loved having a great Monday, it was sort of my guage as to how the rest of the week was going to go, I was also more likely to be at work a lot earlier on Monday, ready to rock n roll. Thanks again for the Hub, I enjoyed it.

      annaw....Sounds like you can relate to the Monday blahs. Some people get and some don't. I do on occasion even though I work from home. Monday, monday gotta feel for it.

      Great hub sunshine...people should really change their perception about Monday especially the working force whose first working day of the week is Monday. I was one of those people blaming "Monday Sickness" as the cause of tardiness. Now as a full time mom I am really thankful of Monday because that starts a five day routine of preparing my hubby and kids to office and school, respectively. Once their off, I have all the time in the world to surf the net and log on to my hubs! Isn't it great being alone even for just a couple of hours?

      Actually, I didn't hate Mondays even before I retired, because I always had the "fresh start" attitude about the beginning of a new work week. However, retirement takes any sting there might be out of the day. As noted above by marellen, it simply doesn't matter any more.

      Ok, you've convinced me, I have been a Monday basher for too long, I am ashamed to admit it. I am one of those horrid people who if asked "How are you going?" on a monday my standard answer is, "Not bad I guess, for a Monday". But, no more!!! You have gone to the trouble of shaming us all and sticking up for poor, old, down trodden Monday, so, ok, I will give him a go. In my mind Monday is now Sunshine Day - hey how much better does that sound already.

      I am one of those people who looks at Monday with dread, but your hub has made me reconsider.... Why do I dread Mondays? I work at home, and as such, I often work at least for a little while on Saturday and Sunday, so why am I still beating up on poor old Monday?

      Memo to Monday;

      Dear Monday,

      When I was a child you represented the return to school and the end of freedom, and so I grew to resent you; When I was in my twenties, you represented the end of a weekend that always felt too short, and the beginning of a long week ahead, and I still resented you. Now that I am older, I am free to set my own schedule, and still, I confess, out of habit, I have continued to resent you, but our mutual friend has convinced me that I have been wrongfully critical of you, and I apologize, and promise to try to look upon you more favorably.

      Thanks Sunshine for a fun Monday morning read! Voted up, useful, and awesome!

      Fun hub. I loved the cartoon. I remember, when I was a kid, I told myself something similar to what you’ve got here. On Tuesday nights I’d say: “Tomorrow’s Wednesday and then it’s Thursday and then it’s Friday, so that means it’s nearly the weekend." Can’t remember what nonsense, if any, I told myself on Mondays though!

      I’m now in the same camp as many others here, since I work from home every day feels fine to me.

      I love Mondays. I made monday my hubday and my fun day. I like to at least get my outline completed by noon. Then I go for an energy walk and plenty of water and back to the computer again. I start filling in sections of my outline before writing it in hub form. When that part is finfished, I reward myself with chocolate yogurt mixed with coolwhip and a scoop of organic granola.mYes - Mondays are just fine with me. :)

      Poor Monday...never gets a break! Not sure why, but Tuesdays for me seem to be far worse than Monday's at the office. Loved your hub - voted up! :)

      Sunshine,

      Happy Monday!

      It's all in one's attitude. I've never had anything against any particular day of the week.

      I think, though, that some people don't like Mondays because it means that they have to go back to work after having two days off. If they didn't work, they wouldn't have money, and their two days off might be less enjoyable.

      Hey Sunshine, at this moment in time, I love Mondays because I have a day off from work, so no Monday morning blues for me, and by the time I go in on a Tuesday, the week's virtually half over. Happy Monday to you!!! Voted up and shared.

      nice hub! Your both Monday dialogs were a funny idea! Personally, I have nothing against Mondays. I don't like Tuesdays somehow, because I have dump subjects at school on this day. Voted Up and Funny!

      Love your attitude towards Monday. Now that I am a stay at home mom right now Monday is not so bad to me, but when I was teaching I too was a Monday hater and not a fan. Sorry, but it just gets a bad rap and agree with you on that. Loved how you but the Bangles "Manic Monday" in this article, because I always loved that song. Such a good tie-in. Voted up and shared this Monday morning.

      Nice job! It is Mnday morning, I am running late BUT you have managed to make me almost like mondays! It's that amazing Sunshine blasting through!

      I love the way you re-worked the week to make it center around Monday. And you are totally right. Manday does have some pretty cool holidays that equal three day weekends for a lot of us. What other day can say that?!

      Voting up, etc.

      Hi Sunshine625, I just read this on a Monday morning and enjoyed it. I LOVE Mondays! I can look forward to screwing up another week in my life by doing stupid things like I did last week. Honestly, I don't mind Mondays at all. Enjoyed the video, I keep thinking of the song (and I don't remember the name of the singer) who did " Monday, Monday". Oh, I think it was Neil Diamond.

      I voted this UP and funny, and I'll share this on a Monday morning so others can enjoy it as much as I did.

      Voted up and funny...a hub only you could write...bringing sunshine to poor, picked on Monday. Songs put it down, poets put it down, and as you've pointed out so well, people just don't like it! Maybe your hub will help lift the blight on Monday.

      Hate monday!!I remember when i used to go to college,since Monday comes after the weekend my head used to be paining when-ever i came back from college as on the weekend my routine was completely different.

      since then it always feels like as if it's the worst day of the week!

      Whahaha, Sunshine, you've picked the wrong day to promote. Monday will forever be the black sheep in the family. But you deserve a bravo, you have tried your best in a beautiful way to make Monday an adorable day.

      How do you know the difference between people +40 and people -40. When +40 they start Monday fresh and rested and by Friday they are dead-tired. When -40, they start Monday dead-tired and by Friday they are up and about and ready for a hectic weekend :)

      I hate Mondays. In fact, I am indifferent to Sundays and Saturday is only my friend because it is right after Friday. I view the weekend with a mix of dread and excitement. Another week is always around the corner.

      I used to have a terrible case of Sunday night dread every week. But now that I quit my stressful job and work from home, I don't mind Mondays so much anymore. It's kind of nice to get my husband out of the house so I can focus on my writing and other work. : )

      Even when I worked full time, I never minded Mondays. Since I worked in a Hospital most of my life, every day is about the same. Even in retirement, I can't say I mind Mondays at all.

      Good Hub, Linda. I voted it UP.

      The perfect hub to read on Monday :) And seriously, what's wrong with Monday? Maybe we need a serious attitude adjustment. Just sayin :)

      I like to think of each day as a "new life." But that's just me.

      "Today I begin a new life and greet this day with love in my heart."

      Hope this isn't to sappy, but might be useful for feeling different about mondays. Super hub Linda - love it! Up, across and lots of sharing.

      Happy Monday!

      Yes. I have learned not to dread Mondays. I found that I can work Saturdays, have all Sundays off, then I am well rested for Mondays. When I am off on a Monday holiday, I sometimes feel weird, like what on earth can you do on a Monday when you usually work? Oh, I find something to do, always with a smile on my face- why complain?

      I enjoyed your hub, Sunshine625!

      Great hub! I don't like Mondays either, but after reading this hub, I now perceive Mondays differently. Actually, I don't like Tues or Wed either, only Fridays. Don't we all? I like the acronoyms for Monday. voted up cool hub.
