Happy Friday.

Posted on Updated on

Time for me to slow down and take it easy.  You too?  What a week.  It was eventful and productive but also tiring and stressful.  Sometimes I get so wound up I forget to live.  Friday is the perfect day to step back and embrace simple fun.  Don’t fret over the storage unit, the over stuffed garage or the gazillion photographs you need to sort.  Don’t think about the office, or the house.  No need to worry about anything.

Turn up the volume and enjoy!  Baby we were born to run.  *Special shout out to Clevelanders

Every Friday night at 6 PM. Born to Run.

“It was as if the weekend didn’t actually begin until Kid Leo told you it did.”

Two suggestion for today:

Number 1.)  Only spend your time or money on things that contribute to a fun experience.  Examples: Going to a party?  Buy some artisan bread or a few gallons of Vodka,  or both.  Take a personalized playlist to share with everyone.   Meeting a friend for coffee?  Talk about music, movies, vacations, or ideas and plans.  Keep your conversation positive and you’ll remember your time together fondly.   Alone?  Buy a movie ticket and go see a movie by yourself.  ( I have only done this once.  I felt like I was playing hookie from life.  I loved it.)

Number 2.)  Don’t waste your time or money on anything that brings you down.  Examples: Don’t watch the news.  Don’t pay bills, taxes, mortgages or anything like that on Friday.  Don’t pick up prescriptions and positively do not buy toiletries. (Toiletries take FUN out of everything.)  Be sure to stay away chore related items, like lawn bags, paint and detergent.  It can wait.

things aren’t important

TGIF. Friday is an awesome day.  Celebrate.  Live it today.

At 6:00PM I am playing this video really loud.  I swear I am and I will have a beer in my hand, just like way back then. ..and just knowing I am going to do this makes me feel good inside.


Tip: Smile, it’s Friday.

Inpiration: WMMS – Right up until his departure in 1988, Kid Leo played Born to Run as his signature sign-off song every Friday night: “Born to Run was the essence of everything I loved about Rock ‘n’ Roll.”-Kid Leo

One-Day one thing: Do at least one thing that reminds you of a fun experience from your past.

      I had no idea you had a senior. I thought all your children were younger than that. Maybe it’s just time flying by? These are special times for you all – enjoy. I know you will.
