You can feel it. It’s almost here. The most awaited time of the week…it’s the weekend!!! Finally, a break from all the grinding you did in the past 5 days. What to do? You can let it past like nothing or you can make your weekend meaningful.
How to Make Your Weekend Meaningful
People over things
You work hard for your loved ones. When you’ve got time to be away from work, what could make your weekend meaningful than spending it with them. Have some quality time with your family. Meet up with friends especially those you haven’t seen for a while. Or if you have pets which you consider as family, bring them to the vet for grooming or go have a run with them. Make your weekend more meaningful by spending it with people and not with things.
There’s nothing more humbling and fulfilling than giving back. Give back to the environment, to the community and to the world by serving. Volunteer to your local organizations that are dedicated to cleaning and taking care of the planet. Volunteer to a local shelter. Help serve in the orphanage or home for the elderly. Go visit a hospital and give gifts especially to the sick children.
Re-ignite your passion
Your hobby which you’ve been neglecting, go revisit it. Maybe you’re into painting, making crafts, gardening, or playing musical instruments. What’s the one thing that brings fire in your belly? What recharges your soul? What makes you feel alive? The answer to that is your passion. Go re-ignite your passion to make your weekend meaningful.
You don’t have to go far and spend thousands to enjoy a weekend away. Visit a museum nearby. Visit the nearby city or town you’ve never been to. There is so much to see and enjoy if you just keep your sense of wonder and be open to new things and experience.
And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. Genesis 2:2
Even God rested when all His work was done. Use your weekend to rest. It may seem sacrilege to the workaholics but that’s how it goes. God shows us that no matter what we do, we need to set aside a time to rest. You’ll be amazed by what rest could do to your being.
Resting will recharge your body and refresh your spirit. Your brains will work better if it has rested. You will instantly feel better and ready for the coming week.
If you want to stay healthy and keep going, don’t neglect what your body needs. It is mostly in the weekend when you can do what you want and need. To make your weekend meaningful is more than just a gratification. It is also a must to for a better, richer life.
It’s Friday today and although Sanchie Vee and I had decided to take a break from #FridayReflections through April, I decided to it slightly differently. I’m putting up a linky – and asking you to write on any of the older prompts that you may have liked and missed. I’ll have the same linky up all month through, just on fresh posts. Also, I’m asking for a link back to my blog in your post to prevent people who are writing ‘off prompt’ from adding their links.
If you want to know more about #FridayReflections and find prompts to write on, I’ve created a page with the ‘rules’ and the prompts. So go ahead and have a ball. Remember, to link up here so we can all enjoy your writing.
This post is in response to the prompt from 4 March 2016 – Describe your ideal Sunday.
