Why Do Mondays Feel Deprived?
::Moms Against Manic Mondays Link Up::

Happy Monday beautiful ladies!!!
There are so many beautiful things about Mondays . . . Here at From My Mountain View, every Monday, we band together and renounce/reject manic Mondays.  Right here is a perfect place for us to encourage one another and be encouraged!
Moms Against Manic Mondays is a place you can share a post or article on your blog about Mondays, encouragement, joy, pressing on, etc, etc.  :)

Moms Against Manic Mondays - A Day to Encourage & Be Encouraged. 
Let's press on together as we dance in the mornings. :) 
Featured Post from last week!
"Why Do We Feel Deprived?"

This was posted by Angell over at Passionate & Creative Homemaking.  Thanks Angell for joining the link-up and for your super encouraging words!  Feel free to grab my button from the side-bar that reads, "I Was Featured On From My  Mountain View," to post to your blog or this week's Moms Against Manic  Monday post!  :)
Here is an excerpt from what Angell shared:  "Do you ever feel deprived?  Money is tight for us right now and even a simple grocery shopping trip makes me depressed. Always having to buy the store generic, go without, put stuff back, etc.  Seems to be the norm these days.  Sound familiar?"
Angell continues later, "If you live in a house with running water, plumbing, electricity, doors that lock, and food in the fridge (whether it's generic or not!), you are blessed! I am blessed. I get mad at my son when we buy him something and only after a few days it's no longer "new" and he wants something else. But I do the same thing.
  • I got a new skein of yarn. I start crocheting with it and then wish I had another color. 
  • I buy a few plastic drawer organizers and now wish I had another type of organizational thing. 
  • I get cable TV and then want the bigger packages. 
  • I get one book in a series, and then I want them all. 
  • I get a new eye shadow, and then want another color to go along with it.
This needs to stop..."
This was wonderful.  Full of reminders to be content and the beauty of simplicity.  So hop on over to be encouraged and find enjoyment in the entire read for  yourself!  :)
I pose this additionally:  Why do Mondays feel deprived?  Why do we feel the day's defeat before it's begun?  Could the answer be found simply in perception and motive?

Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!

  1. Mondays I so often struggle to get a blog post up, even when I've had one at hand, nearly done. I find I often have to take the time instead to get rightly refocused on what was so much easier the day before, the things of God. Why? I'm guessing because Monday morning is when the world and earth life stand up and yell, "Here I am! Lookit! Lookit! Look at me!" and it takes some effort to wrench our focus away from the clamor and back onto Him! (Worth the effort, though!) Thanks for the good truth of your post this day!

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by, Sylvia! Such truth to your words - thank you for sharing them! My little secret: I don't actually write or post on Mondays either!! haha I prepare the Moms Against Manic Mondays post 1 to 3 days prior and "schedule" the publishing date and time in the options. Just like you, Mondays can sometimes be too much, and I just need to move about the day more simply, with peace. :)

      With love,


I'm thrilled you've stopped by for a visit! I hope you feel as though we're sittin' together on my front porch while drinkin' somethin' warm; simply sharin' life with transparency. :)
