A part of wellness is allowing for down time and making room for fun. Today here in the office weâ€™re a bit hopped up on sugar in my area of the building; with a birthday, author meet-and-greet, and the coming weekend to celebrate we didnâ€™t need much more of an excuse for indulgence. I wanted to funnel this exuberance into a post and decided I would ponder on what exactly makes Friday so much different than the rest of the week. How might we embrace that energy and turn it into something even more?
For the typical Monday through Friday job, youâ€™ve worked through four crazy days by now and today marks the two day stretch of freedom to come. Overflowing excitement and enthusiasm heightens the energy and sometimes makes our Fridays feel â€śdifferentâ€ť, sometimes kookie, and often just a bit more playful .
So letâ€™s call this a practice in manifestation. With a playful post on our Fridays, weâ€™re calling in the whimsical and breezy kind of weekend we hope to enjoy, even if that attitude is crammed amid a busy schedule. With this in mind I brought out the dictionary today to find the perfect word to describe our intention. Though I expected to scan through a large portion in order to discover this word, serendipitously â€śfantabulousâ€ť immediately seemed to leap right off the first page I opened to. I am not one to argue with fateful events, so let us roll with this.
Since fantabulous means â€śmarvelously goodâ€ť and manifest means â€śto show something clearlyâ€ť or â€śto appear or be revealedâ€ť it seems that we are being guided to create a Friday focal point for our weekend. So that is what these Fantabulous Friday posts will contain: images as a focal point for manifesting our weekend fun.Â I hope you enjoy this and future fantabulous posts and wish that your weekend is all you intend it to be. With a little effort, maybe we will begin to discover this playfulness all week long!
