Monday rolls around, though I feel my reaction should be different, it feels like just another day. After all, there’s no office I have to head into at any specific time, and no train I need to board to get to that office. With freelancing, Mondays come easy—most of the time. Nevertheless, to help shake the post-weekend blues, Peter and I have a secret Monday weapon:Music.
My philosophy is this: We should treat Monday like Friday and dance our way in and out. Each morning I stumble in our living room and open the curtains. Then, coffee. The kids start waking up and after a few cuddles, the music gets us moving.
My favorite morning songs in no particular order:
Otis Redding (That’s How Strong My Love is)
Lauryn Hill (Zion)
Peter’s favorite morning songs in no particular order:
Joanna Newsom (Waltz of the 101st Lightborne)
Brick + Mortar (Heat Stroke)
Island (Abominable Snow)
Your turn! What’s your secret (or not-so-secret) Monday morning weapon?
