This is mostly due to all the things attached to Monday and the loads work, expectations and goals on it. Appointments, medical or otherwise, job and school interviews are usually on Mondays.

If you want to meet people for the first time at their work place, we usually do this on Monday. I especially do this because I believe everyone would want to be at their jobs at the beginning of a new week.

I understand how the day can fill your heart with dread, anxiety and panic.

This can be harder since you don’t know what else the day could bring especially if you have an impatient boss, a working Mom, and traffic to confront.

It is no wonder that Africans, especially Yorubas believe so much in this day. They believe whatever you start your Monday with determines what you deal with for the rest of the week.

But let us also not forget that Mondays are also for fresh starts.

It is a new beginning, a day that you can start over and do better than the previous week.

So, I have compiled 10 quotes to motivate and inspire you to face your Monday with a positive mind, determination and vigour.

No matter how scary, gloomy or uncertain the future is, it becomes natural, safe and certain when it passes by.
