Why do we think Fridays are so important?
When my children were in elementary school, the school put on an assembly about teaching your children not to always look forward to Fridays and the weekend. It has stuck in the back of my mind for all these years as my children are about 30 yrs old now.

The whole meaning behind not dwelling on Friday all week is that we spend too much time looking forward to the future and what’s going to be, instead of living in the present and enjoying each day as it comes. Each day has something to offer and enjoy and if we spend all week wishing it was Friday then we can’t enjoy our lives and appreciate each day. It’s not an easy concept to live by because those of us that work and go to school still cannot help but project during the week. I find myself doing the same thing but try and catch myself every time I think that and remember what that speaker told us with our children; live for the present and appreciate each gift, or life will just pass by as you keep wishing for another day to come.
