So let me start out by saying that I teach for a total of six hours a week. So don’t cry for me. Still I guard Sundays with a ferocity that may surprise some. Church is my choice so I go every Sunday with few exceptions. In nicer weather church is preceded by a walk in the park. Afterwards though I try to do as little as possible. Since I teach on Monday morning at 8:30 a.m. some school work is involved. My husband and I usually watch something that we DVR’d earlier in the week and I usually prepare dinner. What I really avoid is anything that causes stress and since I retired from my former career six years ago I have little stress about work.
I know that many of you have family and other responsibilities that occupy your Sundays. Some of you have to work. So your Sunday may be Wednesday. The point is that we all need a day that we can live stress free. It’s the day that we start the clock over and hopefully find that sense of renewal. Church triggers the renewal for me. So press on and enjoy the moments that you have. Tomorrow it starts again!
I have struggled lately to find words to put in my blogs. This is unusual for me because generally I have a lot to say. I have placed personal pressure on myself to keep a schedule with my second blog and I am bowing under the self-imposed schedule. I think this week I am just going to go with the flow and see what happens. Perhaps that will allow me to write more in this one too. We’ll see.
It’s Sunday and for years I allowed myself to spoil Sunday by spending more than have of it dreading Monday. Well that’s in the past for me and now when I have to leave the house on Monday morning, it’s to do something I like. My current thinking is that even if you don’t like what you do on Monday, don’t spoil your Sunday. If you are fortunate enough not to have to work on Sunday then I suggest that you use in a way that you love. If you attend Church go, if it’s your fishing day, fish. One thing is for sure, whether you enjoy it Monday will follow. Most of us will survive it, like it or not. So don’t sweat the small stuff. Happy Sunday.
