Fresh Start

Happy Monday, my rockin’ divas. Here at SarahJaneReign, I’m always trying to better myself. One thing I haven’t been great at is being my usual cheery self on Monday morning. I usually come into work (a few minutes late), slump in my chair and work in zombie-mode for most of the day. I feel like I can do better than that, so I’ve resolved to start my weeks off with a bang. Better attitude Mondays!

They say that one positive thought in the morning can brighten your whole day, so that’s going to be my approach. Instead of thinking of Monday as the start of a long and dreaded haul to the weekend, I’m going to start embracing it as a fresh start. A chance to fix anything from the week prior. Learn something new. Make a new friend. Anything that can add a bit of sunshine to the day. Hopefully, my optimism will be contagious, because I know that Mondays can be rough for a lot of people.

One way that I like to trick myself into feeling more awake and ambitious first thing in the morning is by dressing in a cute outfit that makes me feel confident. Blush pink is one of my favorite colors to wear right now, and its softness gets a hint of edge when it’s balanced out with a black flyaway cardigan and black shoes.

Fun tip: do you have a shirt that isn’t “work appropriate,” perhaps because it’s sleeveless or low-cut? Throw a cardigan, blazer, or cami on with that baby and it’s instantly ready for the office. This pink shirt, with its low-cut V and thin straps is a good example.

What do y’all do to kick off the week? Do you struggle with Mondays? Be nice and tell me I’m not the only one. That said, let’s go get it this week!
