Names I Use

To avoid any confusion I thought it appropriate to list the names (cyber) I go by.
My Names:
Mel Kaye-(my real name), MondayMorningPower,
MMP, Killeris-(Technorati name), Powerkis-(Wordpress name), SiFiBiBi-(Original Blogger name)
Site Names:
Attitude, The Ultimate Power-(Blog name)
MondayMorningPower-(Blog AKA)

Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

My New Year's Wish

My New Year's wish for all of my blogging friends is that "2008 be filled with the creation of the most precious memories for future remembrance!"

Blogging Buddies

This was presented to me by my good friend Nina of the Alien Next Door. According to Nina: “I hope the new year will bring just as many fun, interesting, thought-provoking, warm and inspirational blog posts, to and from each of you, and just as many nice comments, tips and suggestions, as we all have seen in the past year.”

Thank you Nina!

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section III - Installment #4 "Solitude” – Male & Female versions)

(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

If you are a regular reader of my Empowerment Process please read the Section II version of this poem first; then read this version.


If I laugh the world laughs with me;
Weep, and I weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of it’s own.
If I sing, the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost in the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

If I rejoice, folks will seek me;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all my pleasure,
But they do not need my woe.
If I am glad, my friends are many;
If I'm sad, I'll lose them all--
There are none to decline my nectared wine,
But alone I must drink life's gall.

If I feast, my halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
If I succeed and give, it helps me live,
But no one can help me die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow isles of pain.

Based on a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
Refer back to the "Section (II)" "Comments"
  • How do you feel when you are around happy, positive people?
  • How do you feel when you are around unhappy, negative people?
  • How will you act when you are around the people you like?

Office Memo

For many of us next week we go back to work and begin a new year. Let's hope that we don't see this on our desks.

Office Memo

Dress Code:
- You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary.
- If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.
- If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.
- If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

Sick Days:
We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor; you are able to come to work.
Personal Days:
Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturdays & Sundays.

Bereavement Leave:
This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend the funeral arrangements. If there are cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.

Bathroom Breaks:
Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic Offenders" category. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sectioned under the company's mental health policy.

Lunch Break:

- Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy.
- Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure.
- Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

The other side of the story

I was in the process of figuring out what to post today when I got this story emailed to me. It became obvious that this needs to be seen, so this is today's post.

This needs to make headline news...not some of the other junk that makes the news these days!!! Like the Rosie O'Donell war of words...celeb weddings...who's not wearing undies...etc.

It's a tough, but heartwarming story...with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq.

John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed. The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head...but they failed to kill her. She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.

He is a real Star of the war, and represents what America is trying to do.

The American public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what we're doing over there is making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time.

Outstanding Blogs

Troy Worman, who authors ProcessGeek, is a widely influential and creative force on the interactive Internet. He has developed a means of recognizing outstanding new blogs - those which have been started in the current year - and has now cast his net over the entire field to select the overall outstanding blogs. "Attitude, the Ultimate Power" is proud to be among the 52 that Troy has designated as "Simply Outstanding". I am both honored and humbled.

Below is Troy’s original list. There are many excellent blogs that you will want to take a look at.


B = Beautiful

Biz -something




E is for “E”




I = Ideas. No one is going to like all of your ideas. It’s best to stop caring about that now.





  • LogoBlog For the articles. And the logo maker.
