I noticed a funny thing about a month into working for myself. I realized I no longer suffered from “the Sunday scaries.” The panic and fear of going back to work on a Monday I had for several years was no longer present. I no longer minded Mondays. W-O-A-H.
This realization was rather amazing. And oddly enough, I have started to really like Monday mornings. I wake up really excited to work, really excited for the days ahead. I wake up ready to seize what’s ahead of me and don’t stress out about going into an unpleasant office environment. I love that I can start my Monday making a cup of coffee at home and get to my to-dos in a slow + steady manner. Or I can rise up and head out and go to the grocery store when no one else is there and run a few errands before sitting back down in front of my computer.
No doubt the favorite part of my new normal is the flexibility in my schedule. Generally, I can design my days however I want. If I have to be away from my computer for an event or a blog project, I know I’ll get to my work later in the evening. But no one is expecting me to be in front of my computer, glued there from 9-6 like I used to have to be. It’s so empowering and I love that I can work whenever, wherever. It’s harder and smarter working these days!
So in the spirit of liking Mondays more…I hope you have a great one! This outfit I wore last week to a busy day of press previews and I’ve rounded up some other great Madewell new arrivals I’m currently loving as we prepare for Fall.
