From the moment the office opened, it was a crazy day.
The phones rang non-stop.
The waiting room flooded with customers.
The work seemed never-ending.
And it was such a beautiful day!
How can a crazy-busy Monday be beautiful?
In case you forgot, this is how Monday's can be beautiful.
This morning as I was readying myself for the day, I was reminded of a phrase I heard frequently as my days as a missionary - "walk in the opposite spirit." Most of the time this was said in terms of how to respond to others. But today I applied it the spirit of the day.
What do I mean?
It's like Monday constantly has a bad attitude.
And it's my choice how I'm going to respond to it.
Do I respond with the same bad attitude?
Or do I walk in the opposite spirit?
Today I chose the latter. I chose to have a good attitude.
I chose to find the beautiful.
My beautiful day included a gorgeous spring-like day, some one-on-one time with my mama, and breakfast for dinner with my husband.
How did you respond to this manic Monday?
