So, Friday has come around again. And Friday 13th, to top it off!!! (To me a very special day, as it is my daughters birthday today, and since she was born, the 13th held no threat to me anymore – how could it, it was the best day of my life, when I became a mother for the first time!!!)
But back to Fridays, and weekends – are you pleased it’s weekend? Excited? Relieved? Or does it not matter to you at the moment?
Used to be, we all couldn’t wait for Friday to roll around. Tired after a week’s work, excited to hang out with friends or get some well earned rest. Sometimes there were chores to be done around the house, shopping to be done, people to see.
Nowadays, it seems (to me at least) that all the days are basically the same, and whether it is weekend or not doesn’t really matter. In some countries a lot of people have started working again, in others most are still in lockdown, or in lockdown again. Here in South Africa, most of the industries have started up again, so weekends are becoming more important again.
How has this ‘inertia’ impacted on your life? Did/do you find it difficult with most days feeling the same and sort of just flowing into each other? Does it make you upset, not having a routine to stick to?
I like doing my own thing, deciding day by day how I’m going to spend the day. It is not very conducive to earning good money, but in my industry (real estate), most of the activity depends on the amount of buyers that is around – if there is no activity, then also (obviously!), no money will be coming in. And it is only now starting to pick up…
So, for now, I’m fine with being relatively inactive, with short bursts of business. I’m coming to that part of my life anyway, where things slow down, and restfulness and calm take over. If only one got paid for doing nothing…
Until next time, enjoy your weekend! 🙂
