I’m a little late to the party, but nonetheless, today I’m linking up with one of my newly-discovered blog favorites (and fellow Coloradan!) artsocial.
Yesterday was my Friday. And, as if it really needs to be said, Fridays make me happy. There are two major reasons that this is true: one, rest, and two, potential. Seems like there is so much spare time for extra sleep and extra adventures. And not that there’s anything wrong with appreciating the weekend, but since yesterday was my Friday but it really was a Wednesday (long weekend to visit the family in Chicago!), that got me thinking.
What if we lived like every day was a Friday? What if we actually learned to live restfully instead of waiting on the weekend to catch up with ourselves? What if we appreciated every day for its unique potential, instead of mentally accepting that we have to put off happiness until the weekend? I know I would much rather live that way!
I suppose it’s all about attitude and intentions. And as you know around here, I’m all about everyday adventures, but I’ll also be the first to admit that there are day that I get caught up in routine and the other non-exciting (or negative) parts of my day. I am learning to be more mindful of the thoughts I think in passing moments and realizing more and more that I can change my perspective from a “just wait til the weekend” to an “every day is beautiful and worthwhile and a precious gift” mindset.
So here’s to everyday happy, and everyday Friday!
