Happy Friday Morning/Afternoon/Evening Worldwide WA Community!
And so, at the start of another weekend, we are at the long awaited TGIF threshold again, some of us limping our way across that imaginary line of temporary respite from the daily workweek grind, the rush hour traffic and daily commute.
As temporary as it may be, the weekend always seems way long overdue, as we've looked forward to each one of them and to what we can do and to what we do not have to do for a couple of days, at the end of the workweek.
The anticipatory process repeats every single week, except for when we may also have a long weekend or vacation which provides for a longer yet still temporary reprieve from the much dreaded and predictable career path.
Many of us are still carrying large student loans, mortgages for homes or other financial indebtedness and we're stuck in the so called rat race hoping that somehow, without much in our control, things will dramatically change.
All the while the decision making process about our careers and the intertwined personal lives is basically done by others up in the chain of command. The reality of it, put simply, is that others define us, determine our abilities, worth and experience.
This post is not about stating the obvious vicious cycle but rather to inspire us to do more as countless other successful W members have done here.
The prior paragraphs reflect a non proactive way of managing our lives, whereas, as demonstrated by many here at WA, there is a better way of doing so.
And so, let us seek fertile soil, one in which even as the system would try to bury us in, we can thrive as seeds which sprout into mighty plants.
It is not just a cliche statement because from seed to plant needs much to be done by each one of us, and all that travail cannot be delegated to others but rather will stem from within using the nourishment of knowledge, community and goodwill.
If we see TGIF as a victory...
What do we call the rest of our workweek? Defeat?
Has God intended for us to feel defeated most of the time?
Let us love Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays again.
Let this TGIF be either the start of it for most of us or a reminder to those who are already there.
Thank you for taking the time to read this brief post.
