Never fret on a Friday. Never Worry on a Wednesday. If you going to have a tantrum…for heavens sakes don’t do it on a Tuesday. Don’t over think on a Thursday, sit around on a Saturday or spend too much time moping on a Monday. Sundays are better suited for savoring than stressing.
I started thinking about this on a Friday. I was fretting. I haven’t a clue what I was fretting on. But at that moment, it dawned on me that Fridays are not great days for fretting. Then I got to thinking…when is a good day to fret? Is there a good day to fret? As I scrolled through the days, it was clear…most days or not created for productive fretting, except maybe a Monday. It seems Mondays are the day for a bit of moping. However, make it short and sweet. Mondays are also rich for music, movement, moments of mystery, magic and mindfulness. Too much moping on a Monday can waste a perfectly lovely day.
Fridays are the day to finish up and then have fun. Why would you waste a good Friday by fretting when you could be creating art, loving and playing? Fridays are perfect for finishing up and living brightly.
Don’t over think on a Thursday. Looping thoughts, too many thoughts, too deep of thought are best saved for another day. Be creative on Thursdays. Luck shines brightly on Thursdays. Take a leap of faith and jump.
Don’t worry on a Wednesday. It’s the day to begin. Start new projects on Wednesday. Begin your new habits, write, and call a friend. Wiggling is fine for Wednesdays, especially if it comes with a tune.
Never have a tantrum on Tuesdays. If you have inner venom circling around, redirect it. Don’t spit it on others. Wash your car, go for a walk, find a safe outlet. Your words have an extra bite that goes straight to the heart on Tuesdays.
Do not sit around on a Saturday. Stand up, shake off the muck, smile and get started. Saturday focus carries a special kind of satisfying.
Never stress on a Sunday. Let the sunshine and nature wash away tension. Relax, savor. Do it outside, study in the sun, nap in the shade. Stir a pot of stew slowly. Sip a cup of tea on the porch with friends.
So.... if you must mope, fret or worry, do it on a Monday. Wallow if you must, but remember too much wallowing can dehydrate you, so drink a lot of water.
The next time, you find yourself fretting, worrying, snapping...pause and check your day. Be mindful about when and what you do.😊
