TGIF…Again…

Jane CarrollSo it’s Friday…again…and…Bertha…is asking me…what I have to show for myself this week…what have I done…that I’ve enjoyed doing…that moved me along towards my goals…and…that even though it wasn’t fun…was just necessary to get the job done…

Well…I won’t bore you with all the details…but…once I started listing my accomplishments…I realized that…I’d done more than I would have given myself credit for…

Bertha…says it’s so easy to take my accomplishments for granted…that it’s important to actually stop and take note of what I do…in a day…a week…a month…a year…and…celebrate…

She says Friday is the perfect day to do this since I’m already doing the happy dance…I can just kick it up a notch…

How about you…what can you celebrate this week? I’d love to hear in the comments…and while you’re there…check that little box that says you want to sign up for the newsletter…cause you know you do!

Playing Favorites…

Today…is…Friday…and…I’m doing the TGIF dance…looking forward to the weekend…and…all that it will bring…

Two weeks ago…Friday…meant nothing…it was summer break…mostly I didn’t even keep up with the days of the week…they were pretty much equal…but…going back to work…changes all of that…

Monday…and…Friday…become…gatekeepers…to the work week…to the weekend…and…I suddenly know…exactly what day it is…and…quite honestly…Saturday and Sunday…are my favorites…

I felt a little guilty for admitting that…what if my boss sees this post…what if they think I hate my job…what if…what if…what if

Bertha…just laughed at me…reminding me…that…I love my job…and everyone knows it…but…then…she tells me more…she tells me the real reason that I love my time off so much…

She says it’s not that I don’t enjoy my work…it’s just that I need the time off to…play…recharge…fill my tank…so…that I will have plenty to give…come Monday morning…

She further says…that when I am looking forward to…Friday…it’s because…my tank is getting empty…I’m running on fumes…which just means…I need to take a bit more time during the week…to do the things that fill me up…prayer…contemplation…meditation…affirmation…exercise…

And…if I’m dreading…Monday…she says…I just haven’t gotten full on the weekend…so…I’m going in…half-tanked…so to speak…

Hmmm…Bertha…not sure I like that phrase…but…I get the meaning…and…it makes sense…

And…I realize…I haven’t taken…enough time this week…so…I think…I’ll take some now…
