Travel Log 9-14: The Evil Land of Mondays

I truly believe somewhere some mean person is rejoicing at the horrible thing they created- Monday Mornings.
    I am not by any stretch of the imagination a morning person, and I have no idea why, but Monday's are the worst. So as I pry my eyelids open and think about propping them up with a stick I find myself wishing for a way to make this easier. Surely the gods must have some way to make this bearable.
    Snuffling back my whimpers over lost sleep I decided to find something that would help me to get in the right frame of mind in the morning. Starting out with the right mental foot can make even a trying day go more smoothly.
Here's a little tidbit I found that I am going to try:
     Take a moment to ground yourself and to take a few settling breaths. Close your eyes, visualize a brilliant sunrise over the sea and repeat the following:
       "Morning glory burning bright
        Take the sleep out of my sight
        Fire rises from the ocean to meet the air
        The Earth grounds me and gives me her energy to share
        Animals have shaken the sleep from their eyes
        The world is awake and so am I"
