Chance Chat #31: Friday

Happy Sunday! Some of you might be getting the Sunday blues. I’ve definitely experienced that in the past, especially when I lived in Duluth. I rarely was at my apartment for the weekend, which meant that I was driving every single day of the week for more than 100 miles each day. Now that I’m unemployed I don’t really drive unless I’m heading to the cities for an interview or networking event. Friday’s aren’t any different than any other day of the week. If anything, the weekends are harder because I know I’m not going to be contacted by recruiters or Human Resources professionals.

Stop Waiting for FridayI’ve tried hard to make the most of this time. I’m trying to clean out my closet, train for Superior Man Triathlon, and prepare myself for moving to the cities. Of course I would love to get a job and start work tomorrow. But that’s not going to happen.

I have to trust that the right job will come. A job where I’m not miserable and wishing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday away just so I can enjoy Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That is no way to live.

Do you wait for Friday? Or do you try to add good things to the weekdays?




  1. It’s a lesson in patience, wouldn’t you agree? A lesson I’m learning and working on every single day myself. Sending you lots of love and strength, my friend! ❤

    1. Thank you my dear!! I can’t wait to see what kind of changes you enact as you finish your 50 states adventure!

  2. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that you find a great opportunity in the cities soon! I’m sure it’s so hard to have such uncertainty about what the future holds.

    I used to get the Sunday blues big time when I was in my last job. The team/work environment was not great and I felt so on edge in that role so Sunday nights were depressing. I don’t have that feeling now that I’ve started a new job which is nice. I am always sad to see the weekend come to an end as I love my days off but I don’t really feel like I am ‘living’ for the weekend anymore!
