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.

Monday Morning Power said...

Amel's Realm said...

LOL LOL LOL!!! I don't think it's THAT universal, though...'coz my Mom never said all those things to me he he he...

surjit said...

Simply wonderful.You are an exemplery product of your mother's teachings.
Thanks Mel Kaye, for sharing this great post.
God bless.

DiamondsSaphire said...

My Mom said some of those things and I have happen to be guilty of them too!!

Monday Morning Power said...

Neither did my wife's mother, but mine did.

Monday Morning Power said...

Or, in spite of my mother's teachings?

Monday Morning Power said...

Unfortunately, I found myself saying some of them to my kids, but only a few.

stacys1175 said...

I rember my mom saying those things to me and Iv also passed them down to my kids also HE!!!HE!!

Monday Morning Power said...

Hi Stacy,
It's funny how kids grow up in spite of their parents

Anonymous said...

How do you turn it over that is the question!

Monday Morning Power said...

If you mean "how do you reverse the negative teachings?" that is a struggle that we all face. It goes to self awareness and understanding the negative inner voices. I'm not sure if your were going here, but my "Process" that I am publishing on this site deals directly with this issue. You may want to take a look at it.

Anonymous said...

I guess the hard part is determining the negative lasting effects...

Marja said...

Ah you know my smart mother. Yep that's her.

Monday Morning Power said...

This is the self awareness part of the equation. I believe that we all know what the effects are for our selves' it's the admitting to ourselves that we need to make some changes that is the real turning point.

Monday Morning Power said...

That can't be your mom; she's my mom.

Sindi said...

This is so funny, you have me in stitches. My mother did some of those things but not all. Acually it kind of sounds like me! HE HE HE HE

Monday Morning Power said...

Sindi, Brave girl, admitting to that.

Ann said...

Great list Mel! I wanted to tell you your award post is up. Plus, I gave you the BeTheBlog, and friendship awards. Congrats, my friend.


Monday Morning Power said...

I figured you would have something to say about this list. And thank you, I'll be right over.

Marja said...

Mel come and pick up an award

dickiebo said...

But....half of it's mine!!!

Monday Morning Power said...

Well OK then, the other half is mine!!

Azzitizz said...

My Mum said all of these things and guess what? I'm repeating most of them to my Little'un.
He, he, he.

Monday Morning Power said...

And the world goes on. It's so easy to fall back to what we once knew. You are not alone.

Marshall Jarreau said...

It's been a while since I thought about my mother. This hilarious blog took me back.

This actually something she probably would have emailed to me for fun.

Monday Morning Power said...

It sounds like you have a cool mom.
