Fridays and Joy


I love Fridays. Most people who work a regular 9 to 5 job do. Even on the weeks, like this one, when I will have to work half a day on Saturday as well, I still love Fridays.

There is something about knowing that the work week is winding down that gives me a sense of peace, of taking a deeper breath, of a relaxation of habitual tension between my shoulder blades. Even now, writing this, I feel that unraveling of tension though I am composing this post on a Wednesday for publication later this week. Fridays are the longest day at my job, 9 hours instead of the usual 8, but they are still a kind of Shangri-La, a pocket of extra joy knowing that weekend is only hours away. And I am not the only one who feels this. All of my co-workers love the last day of the week, too, and so do most of my clients.

 I wish I might bottle that sense of peace and relaxation everyday. It makes me wonder if a regular meditation practice might afford me some of the same peace, some of the same relaxation as a Friday does. I need to try it.

 If daily meditation offers the same kind of tension dissipation, I will let you know.

 Meanwhile, as the week winds down I am enjoying the weekend as it looms like a joyous mountain of quiet fun. I hope your weekend is wonderful, this week and always.

  • Beautiful picture, thanks for sharing (and good luck with the meditation…it will at least allow you to focus on yourself and hopefully enhance your sense of serenity).

      Focus is the right word! Meditation helps me focus for sure…which helps me to be conscious as I seek joy in everyday things.
