I was going to sit here and type this long piece about how Sunday is a fresh start to the week and how we can all make this happen – and when I had written for about 10 minutes, I realized that I sounded like one of those motivational speakers that you pay lots of money to tell you stuff you already know – which really ticks you off and then you have undone everything the motivational speaker was trying to do — which was make you feel good about yourself and about the fact you spent $100 for stuff you already knew!
I do believe that Sunday is a fresh start for my week.
I re-start my diet every Monday morning — after eating like a starving wild dog all weekend.
I re-start my to-do list of things I want to accomplish during the week — I’ve never crossed anything off this list – I just add to it and re-arrange it occasionally.
I re-start my commitment to not to nag my children so much – but by Monday evening they have done something to really irritate me and that one is done right away.
I re-start my routines of which TV shows to watch and which ones to DVR.
I re-start my dedication not to play too many games on phone or to spend too much time on the computer.
In other words — every Sunday evening is a type of New Year’s Eve for me – a time of lots of resolutions to break within 24 hours.
