In the past, I would always dismiss the day of Sunday. To me, it was little more than the day before the work week or the day to do household chores. Shame on me! Sunday is a great day! It starts with S, like the word super, smile, and seashore! And it ends in a Y, like all the other days including the fabulous Friday.
Why do so many of us abuse our poor Sunday this way? Every day, regardless of the day of the week, should be wonderful! Or at least as wonderful as Karma will allow. 😉
Sunday’s should be for sleeping in late, making breakfast with your family and finding an adventure somewhere in nature. Or going to church with your family and maybe a lunch, meeting up with family members for a weekly dinner. Grabbing some friends for an unplanned road trip. Sunday = Funday for a reason!! 🙂
Sundays are so much more than the day before the workweek. They are a day of holiness. A day to pause, reflect and chill!!! But now, they are starting to blend into all the other days. Years ago, most stores/businesses were not open at all on Sundays. Can you even imagine? I can, it was actually awesome. Do not let your Sunday’s become unspecial. They are meant to be the Funday, week starters for a reason!!!
Maybe your Sunday’s are for working and all things not fun. Well, I cannot offer a solution but I can tell you to look at the good the day can bring you and those around you. Remember this:
Take some time on this Sunday and every day to slow down and see the beauty around you. Slowing down and getting into nature can do wonders for your stress and health. Try something new. Go for a hike. Take pictures of flowers, sunsets, and birds. Go find a corn maze and get lost like when you were a kid. Find a sunflower field. Go to a baseball game. Go outside and revel in the beauty this Sunday and every day offers you!!
Remember, you are NOT alone! Until next time–Jenn
