A day for Fs.
Love, comprehension, a feeling of belonging, and both emotional and psychological support are things that are necessary for each and every one of us.
Sunday is my favourite day. We look forward to Sunday all week long. It's a day to take it easy and hang out with family and friends. It's a time to rest and think. It's a day to relax and take a break from the busy week.
The most obvious reason why Sunday is special is that it's the end of the work week. We could all use a break from the stresses of life, and Sunday is the perfect day to do just that. We can take it easy and enjoy the day, doing things we might have put off during the week or just taking a break from the week's routine.
So I made the rule that every Sunday is an F day.
These are the Fs:
Faith: The days can be long, and while we work on our relationship with our creator daily, Sundays appear to be unique. Even if you didn't have time during the week to retreat and express gratitude to your creator, Sunday seems like the best day to do so.
Friends and family: Love, comprehension, a feeling of belonging, and both emotional and psychological support are things that are necessary for each and every one of us. Getting through the gears of life may be taxing, so Sundays have always been a day for me to catch up with my loved ones and reconnect with old acquaintances. Because I live several miles away from my family and friends, I take a few minutes to check in with them and see how they are doing.
Fun: I like to take it easy on Sundays, curl up with a nice book, and try to let go of as many of life's stresses as I can. This is one reason why I value my Sundays so highly. It is helpful because I try to be gentle with myself and tenderly treat others.
Relaxing is not something I do to expend the most energy but rather to ease my body so that it can connect with my mind.
Food: When it comes to eating, have you ever considered doing so on purpose? Instead of merely stuffing ourselves, we should take it easy and treat ourselves. Consider it the pinnacle of "cheat days."
Consequently, there's something extra special about Sundays.
Before I go, I want to share one of my favourite quotes about living in the moment and loving each day as it comes :
“Finish each day and be done with it. For manners and for wise living it is a vice to remember. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. To-morrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day for all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations to waste a moment on the rotten yesterdays.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson in his letter to his daughter, Ellen. (8th April 1854)
