Back a long time ago I worked in the UK office of an American Corporation where I was introduced to the term ‘Hump Day’. Within a standard Monday to Friday working week, Hump Day was Wednesday… the middle of the week, the point where you start approaching the weekend. So it is with RED January that today, the 16th, is hump day, the mid-point. The point where I have completed more days of the challenge than are now remaining.
Following on from yesterday’s Manic Monday, with its psychologically depressing message that Mondays suck. Hump Day is a beacon of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel, for Hump Day, be it the middle of a working week or halfway through a challenge, signifies that the end is closer than the beginning.
I have written before about success and achievement in everyday life and about how celebrating milestones gives a measure of progress, a feeling that we are getting somewhere, and moving forward (read post). So today I celebrate my RED challenge Hump Day with a smile and a warm fuzzy feeling that the end is in sight!
