Those who know me know that I am a huge fan of the Star Trek franchise which includes The Original Series, The Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine and Enterprise. It also now includes what are called “Fan Made” series that air on Youtube and other online venues. Fan made series like “Star Trek Continues”(my favorite), Star Trek New Voyages, Star Trek Renegades are the best in my opinion. There are several other fan made products but the quality of the special effects and acting are not up to par. There are two series in the works I can’t wait to see the final product: “Axanar” and “Captain Pike” – high quality as evidenced by the proof of concept video “Prelude to Axanar” Axanar Ares
So what does all this “Star Trek” talk have to do with…Thank God It’s…..TODAY!!! ?
What greatly appeals to me in Star Trek is that the shows represent a time when greed and profit no longer exist. People use their individual talents for the greater good of society – not to just earn a living. So, in that far away future no one ever feels the need to shout “THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY”!! There is no TGIF – Oh God it’s Monday syndrome in Star Trek. I do think that in this day and age, there are more people who are living their dreams being able to work at a job they love! But the percentages are still way too lopsided where a main majority still dread the coming work week and can’t wait for the weekend to get here.
So today we have reached another Friday – another day when social media is filled with posts of “TGIF”s all over the place. Boldly go where you have never gone before and take time today to stop and think about why you may be unhappy in the job you have. Think about what it might be that would fulfill your soul and still provide a decent income! It may be more within reach than you might think. Even if it may take time to achieve the life you seek, start today to search for that life – the life where “Oh God It’s Monday” is no longer in your vocabulary and you start each day by shouting…..
Thank God It’s…..TODAY!!!
