Happy Friday! You made it to the end of another week on the grind. How was it? Do you feel accomplished? Or is there more?

Either way, give yourself a quick pat on the back and acknowledge yourself. This week you met someone new, learned something, tried a new recipe or if nothing else, weren’t 1 of the 151,600 people that died today. ๐Ÿ’€ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

As I’m sitting on a bench under a nice shady tree next to the Boise River, I’m reflecting on the week. But for some reason the energy is a little different on the Belt today. Way more chill then the past few days…. Ok, I’ve been here everyday this week. Pretty much this exact spot. Don’t judge, it’s nice. Plus, Little Bear (my pup) gets to chase ducks and play in the water. 

Anyway, I’m noticing less activity today and I can’t help think back to last Friday and I remembered the same thing. Is it just me or is it kind of weird that on the afternoon of the first day of the weekend there are less people out and about (at least literally outside) than the rest of the weekday evenings? 

It makes you wonder if we’re all a bunch booze hounds with nothing but 2fers and Happy Hour on the brain. ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ

Not that I’m against it. In fact, I’ll be settling up to my favorite Friday watering hole shortly for a Whiskey and some bacon. I can’t reveal it’s location, I don’t want to ruin it with too many visitors. But, if beer & well specials aren’t enough, add free bacon during happy hour and you might as well call it heaven on Fridays.  ๐Ÿ˜‡

It’s funny where you can draw knowledge from. I think people are roped into thinking there are some magic answers out there in some book or in this article when really the answers are right there, you just have to be open to them. 

Bacon Friday’s even will surprise you…

Be open to learning something new, you never know where life’s lessons are hiding.
