For many of us, Sunday evenings are a time of worry and reproach: worry about the upcoming work week and reproach because so little was accomplished over the weekend.
There is little, of course, that can be done at that point. We resemble students who have failed to study for the big exam and who long for another 24 hours. It is possible, however, that unlike the student, our exams are self-imposed. By focusing on those concerns, we may be overlooking some very important needs that took our attention elsewhere. It may be that our time was not ill-spent at all and that any trepidation about the coming week may be a reminder that we need to readjust our priorities.
Perhaps our Sunday evening worries are the real waste of time.
