It’s Monday and time to take care of business. I’m listening to the Guess Who’s version of Randy Bachman’s song. It’s a good one to start the week and the day off on the right foot. It gets the feet moving and the heart pumping, adding fuel to my resolves. I’m going to take myself seriously in what I do. Not that I’m a light hearted girl but I fizz and sizzle out. I lose resolve and sight of my whatever-I-want-to-do after awhile. Maybe I’ve never known or have that driving desire for something.

I’m going to change my lackadaisical attitude and energy. I start with whatever is at hand. Monday morning exercise class is my starting point. I set my intention to pump it up as best as I can. I can fake my enthusiasm. I can smile, step lively, pump up my arms and sweat. I get the same benefits even if I don’t enjoy. Today was perfect for the task. Our class was a workout on the Bosu ball. I sweated! I can call today the first day of the rest of my life. Here’s what it looks like.

It sure helps me to set my attitude and intention in the morning. I ask myself:

  • How do I want to conduct myself today?
  • What do I want to accomplish today?

And the rest will follow. That’s it. That’s all. Short and sweet. Hope you have a good day.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
