“So Monday, we meet again.”, I frowned…

As I drove to work today (it’s a Monday!) I noticed something common in the traffic around me: everyone had a look on their faces! Everyone was looking at the clock. Whoppie!Whoppie!Whoppie! – Of course no one will say ‘that’ unless their bosses are getting on their nerves for not meeting deadlines, or they have tons of work waiting for them. Now some people who are passionate about their work might be hopping to get to their offices. Sadly, they are probably a handful only, and the rest of us will struggle with Monday blues. I can assure you that it is not easy to bid adieu to the lovely Sunday and welcome the coming of the new week. Leaving your bed and your beauty sleep behind requires serious motivation. As we struggle to drag ourselves out of bed, the only consolation we have is that almost everyone else is going through the same thing!

The worst that can happen on a Saturday is having bad weather ruining all our weekend plans. Bad weather will change our plans, but it does not have to actually ruin our entire weekend. Life often puts us in unexpected scenarios like this, but our resilience should be stronger than that.

Everywhere in the world, people love the weekend and dread the end of it. Sundays, especially, seem to have the same flavor everywhere. If on Saturdays, some people party, some relax, and others spend time with thier family, Sundays are the same for everyone, melancholic and serene.

On the Sixth Day, God created man, the sort of result you often get when you go in to work on a Saturday. ~ Robert Brault

Nobody wants to be at work on Saturday, that is why there is no wonder then jobs done on Saturday do not maintain the same level of efficiency as in other days of the week. On Saturdays, we already have five other days of work behind, and our energy is very low.

Weekends are sacred for me. They’re the perfect time to relax and spend time with family and friends. ~ Marcus Samuelsson

When our work goes through moments of pressure, we feel that it is easy to give up on a weekend to work since we don’t seem to do much on weekends anyway. This is a fallacious way to think. Our minds and our bodies need rest, otherwise, we cannot stay strong for a long time.

It is allowed to be selfish on the weekends. It is our right not to be available for work calls, meetings, and other types of obligations. If we give our best for five days per week, keeping two days to spend as we please is not only reasonable but also necessary for our well-being.


31. On Choosing to Work

I still work weekends because i like it; i enjoy it. i just don't care. edgardo osorio
