Early Morning Monday Blues

It’s Monday once again and after the two days off from office, here I am again, sitting in front of my computer trying to concentrate on my work.
Just like any other Mondays, it’s really hard to get up and be ready for work … I don’t know, I just feel that the two days off is not enough for all the things needed to be done at home.  But that’s the life of an 8 to 5 employee, whether I like it or not, it’s Monday and I have to report for work. 
Commuting from home to office was also a struggle.  Reaching Alabang 15 minutes before 8:00 o’clock, I decided to take a tricycle going to our office instead of the usual jeepney ride … based on my experience, it’s hard to reach the office on time riding a jeepney with just this 15 minutes remaining before the ring bells at the office.  My fare was 6 times more than taking the jeepney but it doesn’t matter, I want to start the week right and arriving on time at the office is one way of making it right.
I really tried to start the week right but it seemed that the circumstances are against me this time.  Most of the intersections were at the stop mode and I did not make it on time … I was late for 1 minute and 2 seconds.  Grrrrrrrrr.   
After taking a long deep breath, I was calm.  Even though I did not hit my target this morning, I’m thankful that I have reached the office safely.  I may sound sour-graping but it doesn’t matter, it’s better than thinking and feeling sorry about it for so long.  My week did not start perfectly as what I have planned but it doesn’t end there, there are still a lot of things coming and that’s what I’m looking forward to.
