Make it work!

Today is Monday so what do you do?

Life is changing and time is speeding up.

If you don’t get going, this day will turn into Tuesday!

Each day is a gift we unwrap each day.

This is a statement I always make.

It is what we do with the minutes that turn to hours, hours to days and days to a new week! Oh my!

All of those add up to help describe and define…..

“Make it work!” what a great line! But what does it mean? If the shoe fits, wear it? Another phrase used. Well, if the shoe does not fit, are you suppose to make it work? Could we say instead, “Make it work better!” Maybe we could change it to, “Make it count!”

I don’t know about you, but wearing shoes that do not fit is horrible, and I do not want to do that at all. I also do not want to, “Make it Work!” I believe we can come up with a better way to greet our Monday!

When I first joined education as a teaching assistant in the 90’s, I would greet everyone with: “Good morning, Welcome to Pine Crest Elementary.” I would get laughs, smiles, and giggles. What a great way to start any day! Monday seems to get the moans, groans, and ugh sounds. It is time to change Mondays into more! What if we started with:

“Let’s work better together as we make it count every day!” The choices we make today impact the lives of tomorrow and build the foundation for the future. Thank you for being the solution daily!
