There is just something about Fridays, I can’t quite put my finger on but it’s my favorite day. There are a lot reasons why I love it. For one, it’s the one day of the week where I can finally allow myself the opportunity to wind down, to be lazy, to stop and smell the roses or, in my case, a freshly brewed cup of coffee. I love coffee. If I was stranded on a desert island and could only bring a few things-coffee would rank up there-definitely on my top ten list.
Also, I think Fridays give me the opportunity to close out the week, which for me and my busy schedule, is huge. So when it comes down to it, it’s all about closure. I like closure. I like things that start and end neatly. So much of my life doesn’t, that it’s nice to have one thing that I can set my watch to, a constant, that never changes. Something that is within my control.
I know when Friday comes around, I’ll have two days after that to enjoy time with my family and friends, catch up on my magazine reading, go for a bike ride or simply lay on the couch and do nothing. It also gives me two days to gear myself up for the next work week and everything I have on my every growing ‘to do’ list.
So as I shut down my computer for the weekend and get ready to relax, I ask you to do something fun today. Celebrate Friday in your own way. Put your ‘to do’ list away until Monday, and close out the week. I know I will.
