Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having an awesome day. If you’re like 99% of the population, you enjoy Saturdays more than weekdays. There’s nothing like a day of leisure (or even catching up on chores) to lift the spirits. Believe it or not, it took me a long time to come around to Saturdays. I like to work, and being faced with a bunch of unscheduled time is a bit daunting to me. On the other hand, if I schedule my Saturdays too much, then I don’t feel rested on Monday. Over the years, I’ve learned to lean into Saturdays – with lots of reading, gardening, and daydreaming. Now they’re my favorite days.
It’s still amazing to me how different each day can feel, even if I’m doing the same thing. Growing up, I used to feel like “Tomorrow is another day” and “Sleep on it” were clichés. It turns out, the clichés are right. Each day is a different “color,” figuratively speaking. Noticing the small day to day changes in my own mood and attitude led me to write What Color Day Are You Having?
I encourage you to take What Color Day Are You Having? from time to time to check in with yourself. It is a good quiz for seeing what kind of day you’re having … as well as for spotting general trend in your daily mood. For example, I tend to have a blue or red day when I’m working. On work days, I let my self get into supercharged mode. When I’m in my off time, I’m more likely to have a violet or green day. That means I’ve finally found relaxation and balance.
What about you? What Color Day Are You Having? I’m curious to know what color your Saturdays are. Comment below and let me know what you got. Also, feel free to come back on a different day (like Monday) to see how the color compares.
