The Sound of My Monday

Ah Mondays!  As I laid in my bed, about to snuggle further underneath the covers and begin my normal ritual of praying and pondering, my Wise Self said firmly, "Get up!  Stop acting like an employee.  You are in business for yourself.  Act like it."  I had not even considered that I was treating my Monday the same way I had for years.  You know, you hate to get up and go to work.  I had not made the switch from employee to employer, from going to work for somebody else to working for myself.  So, I jumped up, made up my bed, got my entrepreneurial attitude and clothes on and started my day. 
In a moment of creative wisdom, I saw the potential in my then-temp job to not just work as an employee but to work for myself.  I love how God does that.  He allows us to see things through his eyes and guides us in strategizing how to get there.  Such was my experience with this temp job.  I knew that if I applied myself, I could flip this temp job into a client for my business Odyssey Administrative Services.  On April 1, 2013, the strategy gave birth to a contract as a business owner.
"Okay Suzette," I said in agreement.  "You aren't going to a temp job anymore.  You are going to the client site to render services.  Now act like it!"  Armed with that reminder, I didn't throw on a pair of jeans, grab a shirt and rush to be on time with the same mentality that caused me to hate going to work on Mondays.  Instead, I put on the clothes that said, "she's coming to do business," and sashayed myself to RTP.  The whole day had a different flavor.  Gone was the anxiety of counting the number of hours to make sure I reached my quota.  "You have a laptop, Darlin," I told my inner business woman.  "Go in, do what you need to be on site to do, then leave and do the rest from your home office."
Hum, I guess you can say that God gave me a Sound Check  - a check up from the neck!  Ain't he AMAZING!!!!
