“Understand your life’s purpose”
“Form of therapy that helps me to stay centred and relaxed. The courage to show up – no matter what”
Sunday is a sacred day to me. I don’t mean that in an organized spiritual way. I feel that Sunday should be spent with a certain amount of personal reflection and contemplation. Not to say I meditate the day away, rather I like to review what has recently come to pass and PLAN for what lies ahead. Nothing formal. No pens and paper. Just an internal dialogue I like to have with myself. A little bit of a check-up.
For years, I left YVR on a Saturday night red eye, bound for Europe. I would miss my Sunday at home and instead spend it in transit through Frankfurt or London. On those days, I was often alone. Instead of having a nice re-cap session with myself, I would have a knock down drag out fight. Why I couldn’t just accept the circumstances I had agreed to and get on with it, was always a mystery. Instead I would internally chastise myself for missing whatever was going on at home and for not taking better care of myself. Cognitive effects from jet lag can be a strange thing.
What I was always forgetting was, the travel was my choice. But, in order to get myself out the door and leave my little kids once again, I always rationalized that the trip was not my choice. Yet, I never once said I didn’t want to travel, please find me another position. I was always too afraid of what that conversation would look like.
Now that I am not in my old job anymore, every Sunday feels like the luxurious day at the end of the week I had hoped for. Kind of like stretching out my fingers and toes, fully in bed in the morning knowing I don’t have to get up at this moment, if I don’t want to. Such a delicious feeling. I usually bound out of bed a few minutes later, pretty excited to start the day. Funny how our minds work.
It is a rather interesting task to think creatively about the coming week and DESIGN my life accordingly. While the days of the week have a loose structure, it is only that. Sometimes projects take longer than expected. Travel opportunities pop up. I love being free to accept invitations and change course. But, on the whole, no matter where I am, Sunday can usually be honoured. It is such a comfort to have this touchstone.

“Do not let Sunday be taken from you. If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.”
“Oh dear Sunday, I want to sleep in your arms and fun day.”
“Sunday is a special day, unique in its own way, having lots of enjoyment and fun. May you have a delightful Sunday so that you are energized for the coming week.”
