Monday morning motivation
Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me.
Here is a video of the Mamas and the Papas performing this great song (email readers need to navigate directly to the blog for the video)
Your attitude will set the tone for the hour, the day, the week. Wake up on Monday morning excited, energized and positive.
