Friday Night’s All Right

31 Silver Linings – A Writing Challenge {Day 17}

Fridays are always a mixed bag for me. It’s often on a Friday, oddly, that I’ll stay late at work, after a long enough week, just to feel like I’ve gotten things under some semblance of control. If I don’t have any plans, I usually run a myriad of errands on the way home, simply so I won’t have as many to do the rest of the weekend. By the time I find some takeout and make it home, I’m spent.

I used to feel like being tired on a Friday night was a weakness, a detriment of growing older. But I’ve started looking at it differently. While tiredness is surely a component, a bigger part of it is simply my mind and body letting go – letting go of the busy week, the schedule, the pressure, the to do list, and preparing for an all too short respite from the work week.
