Inspiration Prompt #21 – The Value Of The Everyday

October 13th, 2008 by Avital


“Make each day your masterpiece. “

John Wooden

We are grown to acknowledge the “Monday’s gloom” and its brother “TGIF” (thanks god it’s Friday). I resent those ideas as both are causing us to fast forward and actually live only 2 days out of every week. We are living from one weekend to another.

I’ll repeat (for the sake of stressing this point as much as possible), we are growing accustomed to living every 5 days in anticipation for the last two days of the week. Waiting – 5 & Enjoying – 2. Why would we do such thing to ourselves? Why would we accept notions that are basically nullifying 5/7th of our lives?!?

I have lived like that for several years. I was waiting for the weekend from the very first day of the work week, living aimlessly for 5 days only for the following two, but no more.

Why shouldn’t we enjoy EACH day to the fullest. Live each day as if it is a masterpiece… Live each day purposefully.

I hereby invite you to dismiss the Monday’s gloom. Instead I offer you to wake up each day with joy and excitement and a purpose in your hearts. I invite you to make each of your days – 7/7 – a masterpiece.

Would you join me? Leave a comment and share your thoughts with me.

Psst… You have only a couple days left for a chance to win a copy of the book: Visual Chronicles by Linda Woods and Karen Dinino.

    One of my constant comments to people at work is ‘please don’t wish your life away’. they spend every day praying for it to end so they can get one day closer to the weekend and I think it’s such a sad waste of a person’s life.
    There is a woman who works behind the counter at a shop I visit during my lunch hour and she is always smiling and chatty and engaging and yet she has quite a muntane job – if she can do it, so can we all!

  2. Yes, I’ll join you. 🙂

    Though I do reserve the right to whine once in a while when the alarm goes off on Monday morning. 🙂
