Got quite a few of these on my time line today. People excited that it’s Friday. That the weekend is here.

I usually find it very amusing how much people celebrate the weekend. Once it’s Friday you see the satisfaction

Lol! Isn’t he cute?

I don’t blame them though. Most people look like this during the week

And once Friday comes along…

However I think if you celebrate this much once it’s Friday, then there’s a problem. You may need to ask yourself if you are in the right line of work. Why are you so excited that your work week is over? Isn’t that just a tad bit scary?

I can understand being in a job you don’t like as a stepping stone to the job you want or being in a job Β you don’t like to raise money to fund your dreams but make sure you don’t spend the rest of your life saying T.G.I.F

Whatever you decide to do with your life must unlock your passion. It must be the in built alarm that wakes you up every morning and keeps you up at night. You must be like the proverbs 31 woman

You must understand that the things you do are important. Live your life with purpose. If you do, it won’t matter what day of the week it is because your work is valuable and it’s important. In fact you will be looking forward to Mondays. Very soon TGIF won’t be


And oh by the way just a word of advice no matter how much you hate your job

Today I’m thankful I have a job that never makes me say

I love my job even though I get to work week ends and public holidays. I love that my work makes both God and men smile I’m thankful that my job matters here but will matter most in eternity. I love the pay here but the retirement plan is literally out of this world.

Before you go let me just say …

I also notice that Even the people who don’t have jobs too will be like

You too?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

God is watching you. Lol! Just kidding o!

See you tomorrow. It’s a very busy day but I will make the effort even if it’s a one-liner. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

  1. Hello ma, today I’m thankful i finally got to catch up with the thankful train!!! been offline for awhile. By the way, is there space for one more willing cheerleader? cos i’d love to be on board. lol! well done ma this thankful train has made me reflect and think of all that God has done for me!

  2. H ahahah the last line will true…. I am usually excited because I get to work back to back, weekends inclusive, so when I finally find a free weekend it’s exciting… it means I can just lounge , rest , socialise , see other people because I don’t think i have met Boaz since I have been sitting in this office and then I can come back again on Monday and slay mentally, physically and well every ally there is.. and true one day I will build that dream and everyday will just be a great day to work, whether it’s the weekend or not…

  3. TGIF….Yeah I love me some TGIF, especially when it comes after I’ve just finished slaying a hydra-headed monstrous project that many people, me inclusive, didn’t think I could pull of in time; and the thought of a midday nap is simply bliss.

    I’m thankful for victories at the workplace; successes that my eyes opened to after I whisper “Holy Spirit, please help me”; triumphs that are evidently not a product of my mind or experience. I’m just sooo thankful for the Holy Spirit – my ever present help. MyThanksgivingDiary

    Thank you Mama. Still cheering you on πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ; and yes, a one-line blog post is still a post ☺☺. Love you!!!

  4. thanks ma’am for helping me remember to be grateful for my job cos im one desperately looking forward to achieving my proverbs 31 woman potential to the fullest.despite being a 9-5 worker(more like 5-9 in nigerian terms), i strongly detest the acronym TGIF that i get very incensed when i see TGIF as colleagues bbm message. i’m convinced to my marrow that the term connotes slavery of some kind which i will never be associated with. but in all, see me here giving thanks and being reminded of the purpose of the job. thanks once again ma.
