How was your week? Did you get everything you wanted to accomplish completed? Did you complete that home project? Get your children back in school? What about that project at work? I am sure you had a great week full of accomplishments and milestones. It is now time to change our mindset and focus on the other areas of our life that are just as important, if not more important.
Be sure you do all of the following sometime this weekend:
Fun: This weekend be sure you do something fun. What is fun to you? Only you know what that is. If you haven’t done anything fun in a while and don’t know what it is you want to do? Do a quick google search and see what is going on in or around where you live. Google search “Fun things in ______” (your town, city, state). There are plenty of things to do. Just go and do them. Don’t think about why you shouldn’t do them, think about all the reasons why you should do them.
Family/Friends: Life is all about our relationships with family and friends. Do you have a friend that you haven’t talked to in a while or a family member? Can you give them a call and see if they would like to do something? Even if it isn’t someone you haven’t seen in a while, be sure you make the time to be with family and/or friends. Make time to enjoy those relationships this weekend and do something fun with them.
Find: Sure we will have some fun this weekend with our family and friends. We will do some things that we may have not done in a while, if ever. But I also want to challenge you to find the time to think about your future. Find the time to focus on your faith. Find the time to focus on your finances. Find the time to focus on your fitness. Whatever is important to us we will find the time to commit to it. The weekend is the best time to do some of these things. You don’t have the excuses of life in your way.
Forget about it: Did you not complete everything you wanted to complete at work? Can it wait until Monday? If the answer is yes. Then forget about it, until Monday. I know it is hard to forget about things and get our minds off of certain things. This weekend, I challenge you (and myself) to do just that. Get our minds off of things and forget about it.
I hope you enjoy your weekend. I know I will.
To your success and your future.
