James A. Murphy once said: “It's not that we spend five days looking forward to just two. It's that most people do what they enjoy most on those two days. Imagine living a life where everyday are your Saturdays and Sundays. Make everyday your weekend. Make everyday a play-day…”. Take time each day to do something you love, even if it is only for an hour! Have a great weekend!
