Wednesdays are hard. They’re right in between the beginning and the end of the week.
I was feeling the Wednesday blues when I got in my car at the end of the workday. I pictured myself driving home for quiet R&R over Pinterest while indulging in some treat I didn’t need.
Instead, two things happened:
I stopped at the store on my way home and bought some inexpensive topsoil. I wanted to pour my feelings about Wednesdays into refreshing the garden instead of my screen.
To be fair, there wasn’t a lot wrong with the garden. It just had a few weeds and some dry soil that wasn’t helping the plants or the eyes.
When I got home and began to weed the garden, I noticed my neighbour out with a cup of tea.
She invited me into her garden to see her flowers, and we chatted about everything for nearly an hour. It was one of the nicest conversations I’d had in a while. In fact, most of my negative feelings about Wednesdays drifted away.
I didn’t need Pinterest after all.
I went back to weeding my garden and felt calm. The motion of turning the edger to till the soil felt therapeutic.
As an owner of a non-green thumb, I thought, “Aha! This must be why people garden.”
Next, I put new soil on top.
Now, it feels like a cleaner slate.
How do you deal with the Wednesday blues?
