challenge the weekend

“Imagine waking up 5am on a Saturday morning,”

How appealing does that sound to you?

I don’t know about you but it sounds all sorts of wonderful for me.

I have work later in the day so it’s important for me to wake up earlier and utilize the time I have to myself.

Do something meaningful.

Just because work takes up a big chunk of my day in the afternoon and evening doesn’t mean I should just sit tight and stay put at home and wait for time to pass.

In fact I have scheduled fitness regimes and brunch dates before work even starts.

Yeah. It took me 25 years to realize that just because it’s Saturday and in everyone’s mind a ‘restful portion of a weekend consisting of Saturday and Sunday’ you actually don’t have to be a homebody and stay put and stay in.

Not having much time actually forces me to utilize my time in a more creative manner and makes me want to make sure every second of it counts towards something. And not surprisingly, over the past few weeks, I don’t think I’ve gotten home before 9 pm (totally out of the ordinary for me).

Gone are the hours spent on absorbing mindless TV shows, and I actually have a pretty dark tan to show for all those hours out, wandering about.

So, for this weekend why not get out there and discover another neighbourhood next to yours? There’s nothing wrong with being curious and wandering in your own city and seeing how things are like in your neighbouring communities.
