For the longest time, I could not understand why Wednesday was for humping. And then I could not understand why the day in the middle of the week needed its own moniker. Then I started working every day of the week, and it started to make much more sense.
If you’re like most people, Wednesdays are a tough day to get through. You’ve moved past the transition of Monday and the momentum building of Tuesday. You know that on Thursday, it feels like you’ve started moving downhill and Friday can just be the finishing touch to the week. But there’s Wednesday in the middle. A bland hump. A hurdle.
I’m not really a big fan when I stop to think about it. But when I don’t stop to think about it, when I recognize that each day can function on its own terms, Wednesday can be just another day for doing the work. I also realize that I have to keep watch for this mindset in other areas. The middle of the month, for example, or the middle of the year can feel like the doldrums. Or maybe it’s your Saturn return or a middle of the life crisis. To head in the opposite direction, the middle of the day, the middle of the hour. If you start to look for those moments, you might realize every minute can function as a midpoint to “get through.”
Better probably to see them as opportunities instead of obstacles. Unless, of course, it’s just one of those days. Sometimes, they come and we have to let them.
What are your tough days? Tough times? Tough months?
