Why You Should Treasure Today

Do you have a favorite day of the week?

I do.

It’s today — Saturday.

I love Saturdays because:

  • I have schedule flexibility.
  • I can nap without the worry of over-napping.
  • This allows me to go out with friends or watch a movie or do something my overweight eyelids won’t stay open for the other six days.
  • It’s the only day of the week I can wake up without an alarm, and go to bed without setting an alarm. This is a freedom that can’t be overstated.

(Clearly, I don’t have kids.)

Every week, I look forward to Saturday. And every Saturday, I do my best to make the most of it.

Which has left me wondering — why don’t I do this for every day of the week?

I’m no historical or religious scholar, so please don’t hold my following breakdown against me (even it’s completely off base)…

But I’m assuming at some point in the past, it was determined a day consisted of 24 hours, and that there were seven of them in what some authority defined as a week.

Then it was determined each 24-hour cycle should be labeled as a way for people to reference and organize their time.

And now, you’ve got an idiot like me assigning different values to each.

When, in actuality, they’re all the same.

Every day counts the same against the countdown clock of our lives.

And to promote one over the other is to demote the value of them all.

Which is why at some point, preferably sooner than later, when someone asks me, “Do you have a favorite day of the week?” my hope is that I’ll start my answer the same as I did above, but I’ll end it much quicker:

“It’s today.”
