on the weekends

Saturday is a rest day for me. A day of blogging , hiking , fishing , reading , meditating ,loving and wondering around 🙂 .

Jacquelyn Smith in her article at forbes.com written ‘ 14 Things successful people do on weekends “, Here they are : “

  1. Make time for family and friends
  2. Exercise
  3. Pursue a passion
  4. Vacation
  5. Disconnect
  6. Volunteer
  7. Avoid chores
  8. Plan
  9. Socialize
  10. Gardening/crafts games/sports/cooking/cultural activities
  11. Network
  12. Reflect
  13. Meditate
  14. Recharge “

Everyone of us somehow doing at least one thing from above list. Specially meditating and reflecting God goodness for the week before and ahead. See the list above and look for which one you can do for the next weekend.

However our list may look like below as well :

  1. Clean our homes
  2. Watch TV
  3. Walking
  4. Reading

Let me fit Praying into the list. Most of us do not want to live the house on the weekend. Instead , we want to stay in our comfort and and take a deep rest after a heavy stressful week. Another group of us , their plan is to improve and enhance their education or perhaps they have an exam ahead to pass.

Being in Nature , is the best activity for me on the weekend. Walking in the middle of greens and huge trees are my weekend desire. But , sometimes the laziness takes over and staying in door satisfy this thirsty soul. or may be watching my fav tv series gives enough indication of not going out. haha.

We need to slow down , reflect and be aware of ourselves and people around us. Do what you want to do ( if it is right) , Go where you want to go , Fly, if you need to , and enjoy the season of God greatness in the land.

It is hard for not to play football on weekend. Serving others are also included in part of my weekend.Well, depends what is your priorities and the circumstances you are in. If you are mother with many little children , than your priorities depends the mode of your children. If you are a single person then , your will say ‘ how will I spend my weekend’ .

Now , tell me what’s your plan on the weekend ?
