Saturdays are always about choices for me. Will I relax and recover, physically, from my week, or will I get those “little jobs” done. You know the ones, the housework and laundry, the windows that haven’t been cleaned in an age, the car that could do with a good wash. What choice will I make, and will I allow myself to enjoy it once I’ve made it?
I spoke with a good friend last Monday and asked how her weekend had been. “I did nothing at all really, just enjoyed the spring weather in the garden and relaxed. Gorgeous. I felt so guilty this morning though; I didn’t do a thing & the house is a terrible mess!” All the enjoyment of allowing herself a weekend off – and a well deserved one I might add – was washed away by mis-placed guilt.
So, this weekend, make a choice. And once you’ve made it enjoy it. If you choose to get the jobs done, enjoy the satisfaction and give yourself a pat on the back. If you choose to relax, enjoy every moment and relish it; then give yourself a pat on the back too.
Whatever choice you make, have a wonder-filled Saturday.
