Make it Happen Monday: Turning ‘I wish’ into ‘I will’

My Monday blues usually start on Sunday night around dinner time. That’s the moment during my glorious weekend when I realize my glorious weekend is coming to an end. From that point on, the dread would set in.

This month I’ve decided to meet my Mondays head-on, with enthusiasm, determination, and ambition. I’ve decided that Mondays will be when I devote attention to my creative self.

I’ve slowly stopped using my home office. I just didn’t like it in there anymore and I was too lazy, busy, and [insert more excuses here] to do anything about it. So instead, I moved out into the rest of the house and began working on our couch.

This month, I am challenging myself to create the space I want to work in. This isn’t an easy task and my most challenging obstacle is going to be finding the necessary time. It is summer vacation and I have two energetic girls at home and a job that doesn’t get done on its own.

I will be taking my parents up on offers to watch the kids and will be taking full advantage of the time that affords me to get my office ready.

This week, Monday will mark the start of a new routine and I plan to set the tone for the rest of the week so I can get some serious work done. After painting, I want to add an art project, pick out new furniture, and create some DIY pieces that will add to the room. I have a vision and it will be interesting to see how close I get to it in the end.


I hope you’ll follow along with me, and maybe even find some inspiration to start a project that you’ve been meaning to get going. If this inspires you to take on your own challenge, let me know about it. I’d love to follow along with your challenge as well.
