Monday Blessings: Monday Morning Blessings with an Irish Flair

Monday mornings can be hard. Words of encouragement can help set the right mood for not only the day, but the week ahead. 

Begin the week with an Irish good morning blessing to get it off to a great start!

Irish blessings are messages of goodwill that are shared with friends, family and acquaintances for all sorts of occasions. 

They are a big part of Irish culture and are woven into people’s daily lives. 

These blessings aim to help to support, reassure and guide those who need a little extra help. 

Perhaps you need some inspiring words for some aspect of your life on this Monday morning. The same could be said for a loved one or someone else who you know. 

I pick a blessing to focus on each day. This helps me to keep a positive mindset throughout the day and be prepared for whatever ups and downs may be ahead. 

Try it, perhaps it will help you too!

Blessings can help set a positive tone for the week. 

Find one that resonates with you and try to get your week off to a flying start.

May God safely guard your every step,
Lest you stumble.

A serene sky be over the things you love,
And dark clouds may never cross your path.

May everyday bring you bright,
Cheerful hours that will stay with you all the year.

Fun Fact to Start the Day: 

“Dé Luain” is the Irish for Monday. It comes from the Latin for moon, which is Luna.

On Monday mornings we sometimes need a bit of a kick start.  After the weekend, it can be a challenge to get back into the weekly routine again. 

By focusing on the simple meaning of these Monday morning blessings, the challenges of the new week may not feel so daunting. 

(You can also think bigger and apply this idea at the start of a new month or year.)

Tip: Write down your favorite blessing on a Sunday night and place it somewhere that you will see it when you wake up to a beautiful Monday morning. 

This will help you get focused on the right mindset for the day ahead. 

Your attitude can be influenced by your good morning blessing mantra. 

Let one of these Irish blessings help you get your Monday morning off to the right foot!

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all the year long.

May your neighbors respect you,
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you

Happy Monday Morning!

Begin each new day with a positive attitude and it will really influence how you feel throughout the day. 

As Monday is the start of a new week, this strategy is particularly useful to keep in mind. 

Take the time to reflect on the words in your chosen positive Monday blessings or Monday quotes when you feel the need to throughout the whole day. 

Perhaps you can try to do one small positive deed today, either for yourself or someone else.

The Irish are known for their quick wit and humor. This is reflected in their uplifting blessings filled with positivity. 

Take time to play,
It is the secret of eternal youth.

May you take time to celebrate the silent wonders
That have no admirers in the noisy world.

May the face of every good news
And the back of every bad news
Be toward us.
