Changing the way I look at Fridays…


Okay, I admit. I have not been my best self lately. As a wife, mother, daughter, friend, office mate. Have you experienced being angry and then later you realize you ache all over? I was so angry with an office mate two weekends ago, and up to now I am still experiencing the aftermath of what I felt. All I wanted to do was lie down and sleep all week last week, and couldn’t wait for Friday to come so I can catch up on my much needed snoozes. And the fact that I had a toddler who wouldn’t sleep with the lights off at one in the morning didn’t help to make me feel better. I felt soooooo exhausted.

Friday finally came. And while waiting for my husband to finish his shift at 9PM, a thought came over me. What if I treat Fridays differently? I mean, we’ve been treating Friday nights as a way to finally relax after a long exhausting week and put off chores to be done during the weekend. What if I start doing the cleaning up on Friday and forego Netflix for a few hours? Or start scrubbing the windows and not check social media? So I did just that.

Saturday came and I continued the cleaning. Including a deep cleaning of the bathroom. I wonder how no one comes to our house when our bathroom’s squeaky clean and yet when it’s dirty, friends stop by? Why??!

I felt so great on Sunday. And to add that my husband did a thorough cleaning of the house (while I slept!), I felt relieved that finally, this particular Sunday evening will be so chill. Also, for the first time in three weeks, it was a tear-free bed time for my son. Hallelujah!

How about you? How do you treat your Fridays?
