Some people would say Mondays suck. It’s the start of the working week, it marks the end of the weekend hence the start of the loop work – home – work.

On the other hand, Mondays mark a beginning. I suppose many of you out there had started a sentence, or several sentences such as “I will start doing … on Monday.” But there is another point of view.

The grey monster.

This is the way I see my condition. A way to rationalize it, to separate it from myself.

I watched a movie past weekend called “Daybreakers”. Nothing fancy, just the end of the world, vampires and some poor humans suffering.

But it had a certain point of view that was unique. When it was night-time and a vampire was there, the movie was black and white. When it was daytime (rare) and a human was there, the movie…

  1. Hard to digest! I like all things in ‘black and white’, as my appreciation for ‘color’ dissipated long ago!
    Sounds as though that is simplistic thinking, maybe, or maybe not!
    I do ‘not’ believe at this point the ‘grey’ monster is active in my life.
    However, after reading this blog, I can SO identify with this Man!
    Thank you for sharing it!

    1. My “grey” is gone gone gone (if I ever had it. I think I did. At least for one day!) 😧😄 Anyway…I think we all see Monday as a “Grey Monster”, it’s the “right” description. And we all know how difficult sometimes to tell to own sadness: “f-off, leave me alone” 👋🌪🌪😛

    2. I like all things in B&W too, after all I’m a math prof and all things in my universe have either “true” or “false” value. Grey is the lack of feeling within the process.

      1. I am a listener! Not a talker! I am not use to blurting out the first thing that comes to mind, if it even gets that far. This is my attempt at ‘socializing’ !


      2. ” One more fail at local cafeteria ” No, if in fact, that was the case, I would have something to smile about, inside and outside. Rejection, is ever present with me!
        Sorry, I tend to babble on at the end of the day!

  2. Monday is an opportunity to express gratitude. It’s an opportunity to express kindness to someone less fortunate. It’s an opportunity to lend a hand to someone in need. To me, all the days are the same in recovery: blessings to be counted!

    1. Yes true…”kindness to someone less fortunate”. We r always forgetting about it, busy with our own lives/problems/feelings..from the other side: we have to be always kind to ourselves -> then we can be kind to others -> and make new connections/engage with ppl/etc. it’s like a chain..

    2. Beautiful thought… My problem is that in my current state of mind the “spotlight” is fixed on all the negatives so I can’t see the blessings even though I know they’re there. Thank you.

      1. They will lead you to where you have to go. Failure is ok, life is that way. You will come out the other side better than you were. Trust me my friend. You and I have the same energy flowing through our veins. I’m making it, you’ll make it. Stay the course!

      2. It just “seems” that everything is pilling up.. failure on top of the other. Or in my current state I’m trying to see some meaning where perhaps it just a course…
