When I was little, I used to love the “days of the week song” and I even learned the Spanish version in high school. Now that I’m older (I turned 30….again, yesterday) the days of the week seem to blend together, going in a mad rush from Monday-Friday and then an all too quick Saturday and Sunday that never seem to last long enough…unless you have children, in which case Monday is often a return to sanity.
Last week I was having some dental work done, and I had a brilliant idea. (I’m not sure if it really is brilliant, or if it was just the nitrous oxide talking), but I’ve come up with a new weekly-to-do calendar that’s more fun and productive than days of the week underwear (although, I have to admit, days of the week underwear are pretty fun).
Introducing my new weekly calendar and to-do list:
Merciful Mondays: Take it easy on yourself today. Monday’s are tough, and you’re doing the best you can. Just keep swimming.
Tackle It Tuesday: Time to roll up your sleeves and get it done. Tackle those tasks you’ve been dreading and eat that frog!
Wishful Wednesday: What is one thing you wish for? Now what’s standing in your way, and what can you do to remove the barrier?
Thankful Thursday: Practice gratitude. Take some time to really stop and appreciate all of the things you have to be grateful for.
Flattering Friday: Make someone’s day by giving them a sincere compliment or spend time with someone that gives you energy.
Sinful Saturday: Let loose! Enjoy a cocktail, have a decadent dessert, sleep in, or do all three. Enjoy! You’ve earned it.
Saintly Sunday: Do something nice for someone else, volunteer, or just focus on treating people kindly. (Ideally, this should be an everyday task).
Make it a wonderful week!
