What's the Hurry?

All week people long for the weekend. I love my weekends too. It's my time to do some of the things I don't have time to do during the week, and it's my time to do some of the things I enjoy doing. The problem with the "I can't wait until the weekend" way of thinking is that we tend to forget how awesome today is. We are in such a hurry to get to the weekend, that anything less than the weekend just isn't good enough.

I try not to do that any more. I do look forward to the weekend like everyone else, but I try to look at each and every day as a gift. Every day I find something to be grateful for. I try to make each day special and I always try to do something nice for myself.

So let's stop rushing through our lives...there are seven days in every week.....let's enjoy them all!

" ...to look at each and everyday as a gift" - I totally agree with this clever view of things. We should all try it.

one thing about being self employed is that every day is potentially a work day or a day off....and mostly i work a bit every day. fortunately i love what i do (mostly) so even days of long hours and lots of work are pretty enjoyable and satisfying...;-)

Another way of saying, "stop and smell the roses". The older I get, the more I appreciate things.

A little bit of wisdom and a lovely hyacinth--now that's what I call a snazzy blog!

You are so right!!!!! I actually look forward to every day, (even Mondays!) I love my work during the week, and I love vegging out over the weekend.

I try. There are certain things I look forward to most days of the week.

It can be something as small as "my favorite tv night" but I try to find something to love about every day.

Those are my favorite flowers, BTW!

What a lovely way to look at things, I like you enjoy everyday and I feel priviledged to have this life where I never go hungry, my family is healthy and happy, my husband loves me and we have a nice home what more could anyone want?
