Day 2569 - If days had personalities, what sort of friend would they be?

I'd like to introduce you to Thursday.  


Are you friends with Thursday?  It's one of those days that just kind of hangs there without too much fanfare.  It's not as irksome as its hump day older brother, nor is it as joyous as FriYay, its party hard little sister.

Thursday is a day that tends to fly under the radar.

Monday is full of action and a bit in your face of the "love it or hate it" variety.

Tuesday is the quiet achiever that everyone tends to accept and befriend.

Wednesday is just plain obnoxious and toys with people's emotions as it dangles you from that midway point across a seemingly endless abyss.

Friday is that cheerleader friend that fills you full of hope and fun and encourages you across the finish line.

Saturday is extremely social, kind of sporty and loves to shop.

Sunday is very nurturing and likes to stroke your hair and give you cuddles.

Thursday is kind of quiet.  It just sits in the corner and minds its own business.  Thursday is that day that unless you actually address it directly, people might forget that it exists.  If you ask me, it's completely under appreciated.

When you get to know Thursday you find out she has a lot to offer.  She's a great team player and she gets on so well with all the other days.  In fact, she's the one that encourages Wednesday to stop annoying everyone and she's also the one that reminds Friday to cheer nicely from the sidelines rather than run up to people screaming for them to score.

Thursday helps you take stock.  She encourages you to look back with positivity at the week so far and determine what else is needed to finish the week off with results.

She's not a bad friend to have.

The name Thursday is derived from Middle English "Thuresday" meaning "Thor's Day".  It's the day we can hold our hammer's high in the air with strength and conviction.

In Buddhist Thailand Thursday is considered the "Teacher's Day" and it is believed that one should begin their education on this day.

So many things to love about Thursday.

A bunch of us have decided that we don't want Thursday sitting in the corner being undervalued and under appreciated anymore.  We've made a decision to bring Thursday out for her turn in the spotlight.

Thursday is now the day we're Lovin' Life!  

The Lovin' Life Linky has moved from the mothering arms of Sunday to join the "take stock" attitude of Thursday with not one but SIX Lovin' Life hosts.

Deep Fried Fruit, Seize the Day Project, Debbish, Write of the Middle, 50 Shades of Age and Lifestyle Fifty have all banded together on this ageing positively journey to embrace the Lovin' Life concept as a team.



We all agree that Thursday is the day to hang out with.

So without further ado I declare the new Thursday Lovin' Life Linky OPEN.

Do you have a favourite day?

What personality type is it?

What are you lovin' about life this week?

    1. Same linky badge as always. The one you're already using. As for code ... I have no idea how to do that! LOL.

  2. I love the thought you've put into this post Leanne. I've never really thought about the days having a personality, but you're spot on with your descriptions. I don't really have a favourite day .... well, maybe Sunday :) x

    1. I've always seen the days with personalities. I do it a lot with innate objects as well. I'm a bit weird like that.

  3. I absolutely love the way you have described each day of the week! I have never really thought about it but you describe the days so well! When I worked full time in the corporate life Sunday was definitely my favourite day. Nowadays - every day is my favourite day. However, Thursday's have of course become more special now as I'm thrilled to be a member of the new Thursday Lovin' Life Linky team. :-)

    1. I really love Monday's. I like the idea of new beginnings. But Sunday is also a fave. Oh, and now Thursdays. Lovin' Life every day really!

  4. Leanne thanks so much for putting this linky together. I think it is a great concept. My favourite day of the week is Monday, believe it or not, because it is a lovely quiet day at home on my own with hubby gone to work, and I plan and scheme for the week ahead.

  5. I feel like the days of the week are people now! My love for each day is mainly based on what TV show is on that night (except for Friday, which I love despite there being nothing good on!).

    1. Ah yes, the TV test. I record all my TV programs now so that doesn't really apply to me anymore.

  6. Thanks for the link up. I love Friday and Sunday.

  7. You are right - Thursday has been the quiet (rather than the rebellious) middle child for far too long. Love the concept of this linky, and now it's moved to Thursday rather than the weekend when I try to digital detox, I can actually join in! And way to go ladies - love seeing collaborations like this!

    1. So happy to have you here Janet! Thursday's and Lovin' Life would not be complete without you.

  8. I love how you've given days personalities and you're so right. Thursday is the quiet one, tucked away out of sight. But no longer! Here's to bringing her to the fore with the fabulous Lovin Life Linky. Thanks for organising and here's to being part of an awesome team of movin' and groovin' fabulous if not slightly fatigued women of a certain age :)

    1. Three cheers for Thursday! She's now got her good dress on and she's ready to dance.

  9. Everyday I wake up is my favorite day. They don't have personalities.

  10. I love that you're changed the day. Sundays never worked for me for various reasons but Thursday is largely unloved so I'm happy to have a linkup to join in with now to celebrate #lovinlife I also love all your partners in crime. Well done my friends!

    1. I think it was a good move SSG. Sunday was lovely. So quiet and peaceful. Thursday has a bit more energy for sure.

  12. I'm not sure if I'm a Tuesday or a Thursday. Perhaps I've got a dual personality?!

    1. Perhaps! They are definitely closely related. If it wasn't for damn Wednesday pushing itself in the middle they could be twins.

  13. Congrats! I'm still going to link up my Sunday posts till year end. Tuesday is my least fav day (was in my working life) Thursday has a sweet scent of weekend almost there.

    1. Ah yes, sweet scent is a good description of Thursday. See you on Sunday as always Denyse!

    1. Yeah, she's a pretty decent girl to have around. Such a nice lead in to fun "feminist" Friday.

  15. You've nailed the days! Perhaps Thursday is my favourite, as it's full of anticipation for the weekend. xx

  16. Congratulations on the new look linky and glad to be a part of it! I quite like Thursday. I don't currently work on Thursdays so it's time for me to do stuff. Also, late night shopping. I'd probably be a Thursday, actually. My least favourite days are Tuesdays.

    1. Thanks Beth! Poor Tuesday. I actually like Tuesday for its peace. I find Wednesday to be a bit aggressive and pushy. If it was a colour it would probably be orange. LOL.

      Delete
  17. Hey congrats on the new link and, by the way, I love your description of Wednesday. Have a nice weekend.

  18. I tried replying to this on the bus on Thursday morning, but tied myself up in knots. I was going to say that astrologically, every day is linked to a planet & Thursday's planet is Jupiter...& Jupiter is about fun & abundance & shouting stuff out loud & pushing hard against your comfort zone. And, as I don't work in the office on Friday, Thursday IS my Friday. Just saying...

    1. Well I think you may have just thrown my personality theory out the bus window! LOL. Although fun and abundance does sound good ... especially now that it's Lovin' Life Linky day! WOOT!

  19. I think if I had to pick a day it would be Thursday too. I am not really sure why. I pretty much like any day that gives me some peace and quiet.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oooooh, I do love Thursday - it means late night shopping…not that I ever really get to do any…haha! Now that I've hung up my linky host hat up, I'm going to try and join the others!

I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
