Days of the week

Days of the Week
Days of the Week

A week consists of 7 days...out of those 7 days in a week,

Sunday, goes in Laundry, Grocery, cleaning up and getting ready for work.

Monday, goes in the Monday Blues. We are not ready for this day of the week and usually have a hang over or sulk over the loads of work on our desks.

Tuesday, we realize that there is no option. We have to work our butt off otherwise how will we continue paying our bills so, we start to put our life into gear.

Wednesday, we are toiling through the papers, and racking our brain to pull off all kinds of tactics in order to get work done. 

Thursday, we are staring out the window as if a prisoner about to set free. We start making plans for the weekend.

Friday, who works on this day? We all Thank God that it is Friday (TGIF) and go and chill with a beer and some free snacks in happy hour.

Saturday, we are up, way early than we usually get up on weekdays and want to make full use of this 1 day by enjoying and being carefree. Wish we could remove the batteries of all the clocks in the world and halt time. Wish we could blast a rocket outside and tie up Earth so that it does not spin and time freezes.

But alas, time never stays the same and we move on and Sunday comes. We are back to our routine of cleaning, washing and tidying so that we keep the dignity of humans and not be compared to dogs.

Such are the days of the week for most of us and we shall continue to live for the weekend and slog on the weekdays.

Why has Man made his life so boring? Why are we always thinking out of box only on Weekends? Why can't we sprinkle some fun and laughter on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of every week of our lives? If we learn to live each day to the fullest rather than drag ourselves to Friday, Saturday & Sunday...wonder for how long we can live?

Let us ponder on the above questions and try to bring some changes in our lifestyle and our attitude towards life.

Nice article Ruchira. Enjoyed! You could almost write a poem with your cycle.

I remember in my childhood we used to learn a poem (in Hindi -I think you may follow) "Somwar ko lagati shala (school)- Mangal ka din bada nirala -buddhwar ko bani mithai-guruwar ko dat kar khai- shukrawar ko thodi pai- phir aai adhe din ki chchutti - adhe din ki chchutti shaniwar ko (In those days Saturday was not weekend)pure din ki chchutti ravi var ko.

Your description is also quite poetic.

Interesting article. How different it would have been if we thought the days in a different way! Each day can be enjoyable.

Yes, I agree with you lex123. We HUMANS have complicated our lives to such an extent that we have forgotten to live it well.

Many people feel this way about the week, and I was one of them. I am glad I feel the way you do now and try to put more life into the week as well. Very clever how you incorporated all the links in here with your message.

I used to look at the week this way. I hated Sundays because it meant Monday was the next day and back to work. I loved Thursdays because Friday was next. Now I like Mondays as there is peace and quiet throughout the house. I don't like Fridays anymore as it means grocery shopping, something I do not enjoy.

If one shuts himself from the world to be self-contained and contented, there are no week days, but only years leaving their imprints on the face.

Hi Ruchira! It is beautiful how you have used humor to enlighten us with the fact that how lifeless we humans have become.

Amid the jobs the menial fridays, stuffed saturdays and littered sundays.. we have forgotten to spare a thought to just let it all go for once and live.... if not for our own then ourselves atleat

Great hub!

As a stay at home mom I have forgotten what it's like to work for the weekend thanks for the reminder. I'm thankful that every day is different for me and weekends are really just more time to enjoy with my family. Take care, Kelley

Oh Ruchira, I had almost forgotten what a work week was like. I have been working for myself for a year and a half now and rarely even know what day it is. I love my life now; thanks for a reminder of what it used to be like so I'll never return to that work week rat race. :)
