People crack me up with their Monday morning emotions and facial expressions.
How do you feel when you get up Monday morning and arrive at work?
Corporate Rebel (me): Some Monday mornings, I feel blessed to have a job. But, other Monday mornings I feel like shooting myself. I am searching for the job that I will just run to everyday with a smile on my face. The only job that will make me happy is becoming a “Career Dropout”. So for now I am working and following my dreams and passions. As a “Career Dropout” I want to be a author, radio host, television show producer, etc. I want to help others in areas of finding their passion, developing social skills, and developing concrete life skills (managing their money, career, etc.).
Utilize the career to leverage the dream. – Kanika Tolver

How I feel on Mondays depends on how I spent my weekend. And more and more I’m finding when I stay home, read a book and generally take care of myself (rather than chasing my friends around the city), the happier I am. I think this means I’m getting old.

Good point – I think a good Sunday is key to a good Monday

I agree with everyone else. Depending on my weekend, Monday may come as a peaceful blessing. 😉

When others ask, “How was your weekend?” I almost always reply: “Too short, but what can you do?”
I enjoy my work, but is doesn’t define who I am. I’ve let go of seeking balance in my life. At this stage of my career with so many of my goals achieved and others still in process; it’s about harmony – not balance.
Regardless of how I physically feel on a Monday morning, in my heart I’m always grateful to be an employee of the federal government and a public servant. With so much trauma happening with our economy and political system; as a federal employee I feel that in some way… I’m one small part of the larger solution.

I jump out of bed, race walk my 9 year old Siberian Husky, nap on the train and spring into the office. En route I give the homeless man a dollar to validate him as a human being and thank GOD! I have emotional and mental health, loved ones to care for me if I didn’t, a job, medical benefits and a pension when so many others don’t AND I GET TO WORK FOR THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Could life get any better?
