Monday Eve Essentials

It’s that time again isn’t it Loves? It’s Monday Eve and it’s approaching quickly. So, let’s get this party started shall we? Here’s the essentials you’ll need to keep in mind.

1.) Indispensable: Absolutely Necessary.

2.) Extraordinary: Exceptional in character.

3.) Significant: Remarkable and Important.

Whether you believe you have these qualities or not,  I’m betting someone sees these in you. Do you have a career? If you have a job your supervisor believes in you or you wouldn’t be in the position you’re in right now. I don’t care if you’re a shipping clerk, cashier, truck driver, contractor, engineer, babysitter, or whatever it is you’ve chosen to do for a living.  Whoever hired you saw something in you and is trusting that you will do an outstanding job for them.

If you’re cringing at the thought of tomorrow and another Monday I ask you to reevaluate your attitude. I know, I know, you’re reading this and thinking “Bitch, don’t tell me what do!” I assure you, it’s for your own good and I’m also talking to myself here.

Reason with yourself for a second will you? If you’re dreading tomorrow that causes worry and anxiety. Do you realize you’re in control of those feelings? What makes you happy? Can you think of something right this second that makes you happy in your life? Is it your spouse, child, pet, a new pair of shoes, a trip you have planned? Well, keep your eye on the fucking prize! Pull up your boot straps and dust yourself off and get your shit together. Why do you want to think negative thoughts about tomorrow? Seriously, choose happy. Choose thoughts of “I’m happy I have a job to go to.” Do you know how many people are without jobs right now?

Although you might bitch and moan about your job from time to time, there is someone out there that needs a job and would love to have your position. Count your blessings my loves and take note that your job pays your bills and also helps you to get your prize, am I right? You feel me?

Walk your valuable ass into work tomorrow knowing you bring something to the table. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t have that job now would you?

You are all of those three things listed at the top of this blog. Excellence is an attitude. So, think you’re excellent at what you do tomorrow morning and it will seep out of your pores and hopefully jump out and onto a lazy ass co-worker so they’ll wake up and contribute to the team. Be accessible to your employer. Never underestimate yourself. I want you to stop doubting your capabilities and show up for the game tomorrow.

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep on saying it, there’s only one you and only one me and we’re fucking extraordinary.

You and I are so much more.

Now tomorrow morning get up, get that cup of coffee, listen to a kick ass song like the one I’ve posted below. Start Me Up – Rolling Stones – I mean if you don’t get fired up listening to The Stones, get your head examined. Although it’s 34 years later, this song never gets old. Seriously, look at Mick’s moves! I was just ten years old when it came out but I can remember putting Christmas garland around my neck and strutting around the living room trying to imitate his moves. Hmm, maybe I’ll try that next week when I’m putting up the tree. Ha!

Cut the volume up my friends and get your mindset started up!







Monday – Are you ready to play?

everyday bad ass

I had a “moment” on Friday after work. When I say “moment”, I mean, I allowed my emotions to get to me. As most of you know I blog about strength, positivity, inner strength, and strive to encourage others. Work was stressful that day and I felt defeated. I felt like I was being taken for granted and just downright pissed off.

I’m blogging about this as I want all of you to know that I have bad days too. I’m a real person just like all of you. I don’t want you to think that I’m always this super strong chic. We’re all human and have those shitty days don’t we?

When I came home from work and my husband asked me how my day was, I started elaborating and broke down in tears. My husband has seen me cry twice in the ten years we’ve known each other so it’s a big deal if I cry. His immediate reaction is to fix the problem and asked me if I wanted to quit my job. He would support me 100% if I did quit. That’s when I snapped back to reality. When I heard him say that, I thought to myself “No fucking way!” I am no quitter that’s for sure.

After I got the crying out of my system I felt much better. I felt relieved to get it off of my chest. It’s OK for us to have these moments where we do feel defeated. Of course it’s not a good feeling and it’s frustrating for us but this is life. Sometimes things don’t happen the way we want them to. We have to pick ourselves back up and begin again. We have to try again the next day and overcome these defeating moments. I allowed someone to make me doubt myself. I’m sharing this with you because I’ve read that if we blog about our life experiences including the ups and the downs that it brings our bloggers closer to us as we let them see us for who we really are. I assure you I am very real. That’s why I’m sharing this with you.

So, on that note loves, we’ll move on with my Monday Eve prep for myself and all of you. I appreciate each and everyone one of you. Now let’s get to the good stuff on how we’re going to attack Monday, shall we?

Let’s tell the board of negativity meeting in our brains to sit down and shut the fuck up. Our business is not to bring ourselves down or anyone else for that matter tomorrow. We’re tougher than we think aren’t we? So what, we have a moment of defeat every once in a while. That’s when we should brush the dirt off and get our asses back in the game again.

We all have a fire inside of us that needs to break free. It needs air. We’re about to set it free and burn it up.

What’s on the menu for tomorrow you ask?

A positive attitude to get shit done, a mentality that we’re in charge, and most of all we bring VALUE.

Let’s start the day with inhaling some confidence and exhaling any self doubt.

As we hit first base tomorrow we’re going to have fabulous energy and it’s going to be fucking contagious.

Face it, we’re all under pressure at work on Monday’s, I think we’d all agree. Focus on the things that are going right for us in our lives.

As we run to second base, we’re going to spread some positivity. Light the game up! What I mean by that is, If a co-worker starts bitching and moaning about how she or he hates working there… them by complimenting them about something they contribute or how well they do something for the company. Try to bring them up to your level. Cheer them on and build them back up. Reel them in. They’re part of the team too.

Stealing third base……You’re in charge of your attitude and your mindset ALWAYS. Every day we’re tested & doubted in our careers and life in general. Remember, hold your head up high and understand we’ve got this. We can handle anything. Put your positive pants on and swag yourself right into work and bring your bad ass to the forefront.

As we slide into home base let’s serve up enthusiasm, sass, encouragement, and fucking charm all damn day. Let’s own it people!

“Put me in Coach, I’m ready to play.”

Go ahead Monday, throw my team some curve balls because it’s obvious these batters can swing.
