So you’ve had a great weekend, it’s Sunday afternoon and you start worrying that tomorrow is Monday… again!

You have to mentally prepare yourself for another week at work and say goodbye to having fun until next Friday. Without realizing, you’re sabotaging half of the day you’re supposed to relax and starting your week with the wrong vibe.

But what if you changed your outlook on Mondays? These days do mark the start of a work week, but other than that, they’re no different from any other work day. So if you can find motivation on a Tuesday, why not do the same on a Monday?

They say we should live each day to the fullest, and that also includes Mondays. When you fill the first day of the week with energy and hope that something great is going to happen, your entire week will look and feel different.

Sure, we love weekends, but life happens every day and Mondays are not that bad unless we choose to see them that way. So grab your coffee, put a smile on your face and see how this day can be just as great as any other.

Here are 20 Monday quotes to help you start your week strong:
