trying to appreciate my weekday time

I read this Weekday Awareness post a few weeks ago (actually a MONTH ago!) about how we shouldn't wish our entire week away. I have been thinking about this a lot because I am definitely one of those people that just DREADS a Monday morning and everything that happens in between until Friday night. I only realized it last night though when I told my husband "what happened to my weekend?" and he replied, "you say that every weekend".

I know how valuable time is, I'm always wishing I had more of it. But just because the time between Monday and Friday usually sucks doesn't mean I should wish that time away, but instead try to make the most of it and enjoy the good things planned during the week days. And so every Monday I will be thinking ahead to the positive, even if it means "making" a positive, so that way I enjoy all the time that is given to me.

This week we are having a commuter BBQ at the park across the street at work... free lunch!... always something to look forward to. And at the end of the week all of our associates and principals will be out of town for a business meeting, which means some office quiet time.

Now if only I can figure out how to wake up on time every morning.
This is something that definitely sets the tone for the entire day.
Any suggestions? (besides the obvious alarm clock).
And, what are you looking forward to this week?

  1. Thanks for linking back! It is definitely so hard to remember but worth it when you do. I am trying to get more done during the week so I can enjoy the weekends even more. Also, I like crossing things off my to-do list. I look forward to yummy coffee to get out of bed. I also like to download podcasts or listen to a new Pandora station on the way to work or use iHeartRadio or something to listen to something new in the mornings. I just really like looking forward to tiny changes. I hope you find something that works! I mean, free lunch is always a good thing!

  2. I sadly have been wishing every day away because I'm just aching to be employed already. I feel like I've just hit pause on life until I get that phone call that says "YOU'RE HIRED." That being said, I do try to have moments that I love every day. For me those are often yoga class (when I was working I used to get up for a 6 am class!) and also I read to my husband while he does the dishes every night and it's become my favourite part of the day.
