Yesterday I was talking with a friend (she's 7), and she recited the days of the week.
Each time she started, she said, "Monday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday..." and then we'd crack up laughing.
"Wow, life must be great when you'd choose TWO Mondays in one week!" I joked.
Of course she didn't understand what I meant... but I bet you might?
Are you now, or have you ever been, at a point in life where Monday represented separation from where you'd rather be... disconnection from what you'd rather be doing?
Many people live with deep resentment/dread of Mondays because (for traditional business schedules), it commences a lie. Or if that word feels too extreme, it starts a compromised reality we feel trapped in due to financial obligations.
Freedom eats that compromise, and restores ownership of yourself, to yourself. On every day of the week. In every circumstance. Thanks for the reminder, Meta. I needed it. <3
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
