I Want To Look Forward To Mondays Again

I'm feeling productive again...

Of all days of the week, none get more shade than Monday. Now, I get it –– it's the start of the week and all the responsibilities and work that come with it are what make people hate it so much. Yes, Monday is the first day of the week. Yes, Monday getting up in the morning is a pain in the ass especially after a chill Sunday or a wild Saturday.

Monday is the day when it feels like there's a bit of clout while it's getting started and it's the day when it's so easy to just say "screw this garbage" and drag yourself through the bare essentials of what needs to be done that day. It's the day when laying in bed and accepting defeat feels like such a welcome feeling that even the strongest person would be staggered.

Yet, even with all that against it, its the other side of the coin that makes it all the more worthwhile.

A new week means a new beginning. A new week means a new chance to grasp the opportunities that are just waiting for me to take them. It's a chance to move past the things that may have held you back in the week before and take the first steps towards making whatever I could want to out of the week that is to come.

The first step towards a brighter tomorrow is getting through today, so why not do it and not feel like a dying piece of garbage?

I'm highly aware of how disgustingly motivated I sound as I type this out and, ya know what? Maybe that's what I need. I've gone through the phases of college in the last couple weeks and I honestly feel like the thing I need more than anything is having the desire to push myself as hard as I did before college. I want to be the one that had notes ready before the lecture even happened, the one that walked into an exam and walked out first because I knew every answer, the one that was excited to be productive and honestly thrived in progress.

So yes. I'm going to be painstakingly motivated again. I'm going to take every day a step at a time and do what I need to do to be proud of the work I put forward. I'm going to do everything I can to be better than what I am now and for that –– for that, I'm going to grasp my Mondays again.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
