Day 384 - Weekend Worriers

Friday, December 18, 2015

You know how some people are "Weekend Warriors" - tackling big projects on Saturday and Sunday after working a full week at the office. Others are "Weekend Worriers" who stress and fret over everything that happened during the week, and then lose the weekend in a puddle of anxiety because of an inability to cope with the stress from days before.

We are more in the former category, with just a tinge of the latter. I am generally a warrior, always pushing to accomplish something during the free time. Having Steve to prompt me on tasks certainly helps. He is more of a worrier - and so i get a lot of his stress dumped on me. Not always fun, but it certainly keeps me on my toes.

What counts is that we're in this journey together. We support each other, and encourage the best in us both. We see the weekend as a time to reconnect, and to get things done TOGETHER. Because, in the end, accomplishing tasks together is always more rewarding than doing them apart.

Having the confidence that comes from being a part of the Spark family keeps me in the Warrior category, for sure.

Be a warrior that isn't afraid to get any project completed! You've got this!

    I think being a Sparker is a true warrior situation! And I truly believe one of the reasons this site works is the camaraderie we share in our quest to succeed, and not
    just to lose weight, but to become healthy! It's that bond that keeps us connected and
    enables us to carry on...

    the family drama has changed things a bit, but...I am spending more time with my sister & getting to see our dad & ex-stepmom more often.

    even when it's a rough day, just being with my sister is so much fun. We cry together, we laugh together, we vent together.

    DH & I have decided to play board games together when we have a meal. No TV, maybe some music, and just spending some time with each other.

    I guess I'm a worried warrior at this point. It is hard to see progress and rights that were achieved in the 60's and 70's be wiped away.
    And so my weekend projects, the half written manuscript, relating the story of my great grandfather and his brothers, who came from Germany to fight in Mr.Lincoln's Army, is set aside again. And jewelry that was designed as Christmas gifts awaits completion, maybe next year....
    Old warriors never die, they just fade away until some young warrior Takes up the banner and stands firmly in their footsteps.

    I am delighted that you have found someone who you enjoy spending the weekend with, no matter whether you are warriors or worriers.

    I'm not a worrier, and every day is a bit of a weekend, so it's not quite the same. The kids usually work all day on weekends, so it's actually a time of quiet for me, which I love.

    Enjoy this time, whatever you do.

    Spark on!

    emoticon doing things together in the weekend is a great time to share our life with our loved ones.
    My husband and I have many differences, in fact opposites in many things, but there is a lot we like to do together, like yoga, walking, watching movies and having an afternoon nap. He does his noisy things and I do my quiet things at other times.

    I used to be a big Weekend Worrier, but made good progress in calming my mind once I step out of the office, and pick it up where I left on Monday morning.

    Okay who does the handy work around the house? Since I became single years ago, I had to learn how to fix things around my home. Eventually I got pretty good at it but still always have room to learn more. Working together is what it's all about in a healthy relationship. It is the ying and the yang. I just love your blogs Steve, they are so inspirational! Hugs!
