Awaken Your Day - July 3, 2011 - Sunday Kind of Love

Sunday really should be a day of rest.
There should be no hurried schedules.  No firm appointments.
No regime.

Do we get so caught up in routine of our work week that we also create the same kind of pattern unwittingly with our valuable personal time...and in particular, our Sunday?

I like to think of Sundays as a time not so much for taking charge of the day, but rather letting it take charge of you.  Of course my wife would argue this as I do not always practice what I preach, and for a long time, I considered Sunday to be my catch up day.  Felt productive at the end of it...and usually exhausted.

So...let me throw some ideas at you.  The common denominator being that you have to take the value in the moments and maximize their worth.  You have to relax.

Go watch a ball game.  Make it a kid's league game.  Feel their energy and absorb the fun.
Call up a friend and go to the park.
Toss around a frisbee, or a football or just some conversation.
Read the paper....slowly.  Find those sections you so often skip over.
Flip thru a photoalbum...and let a memory remind you to smile.
Say Thank you...to everyone, for everything today.
Get an ice cream.  And lick it like it was your very first one.
Go for a walk and window shop on old main street.  Then buy yourself something...because it is just a wonderful day.
Take a deep breath.  And then take time to enjoy how it felt.  And take another.

Awaken your no hassle Sunday.
Keep it simple...and hold on for all it is worth.

I wish you well.
Good Morning.
