I think I like vacations for the same reason you do. On my vacation I try to relax and coast through the day. I don’t measure my vacation day on what I accomplished.
When I am home, I try to be balanced, accomplishments can vary – actually do a household chore, some exercise, blog, connect with friends live or via media, and some reading.
(Today I am thinking out loud.) Albert Einstein wants you, me and everyone to do more or possibly at minimum question what we are doing in our lives.
Learn from yesterday, Live for today, hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. – Albert Einstein
How should we interpret a quote like that?
In my case I know I have lots of room to improve, one of them is procrastination on obvious sins like clutter. But, I am going to put that one off until tomorrow to work on.
I do question also how I use my time, because I feel like I should be doing more.
In a lifetime 2.4 hours a day of tv adds up to seven years of an average lifetime. Oh boy, in this case I am above-average for sure.
I am asking myself, especially after being recently blessed with a kidney transplant and free of dialysis three times a week (15 hours a week), how should I spend my time? I want to spend it well, improving my health but also activities that I enjoy. Isn’t that why we look forward to retirement? So that we can choose how we spend our days? I have responsibilities and family that I depend on and vice versa so I am not about to fly off to the Cook Islands. But I am going to carve out a little more time consciously for particular activities that take me off the couch.
Thank you Albert ! I am indeed questioning, learning from yesterday, trying to live for today and while in the present – and in regards to the future -still hoping for more stories ahead to create with family and friends.
In the meanwhile I will also try not to take life too seriously but will at least try to coast less tomorrow.
When life is gone, all that will be left is the stories and I want to make more.
I wonder how this post will be received by readers. Thank you for taking the time and for reading my posts. Otherwise I would be like the tree falling in the forest and no one hears it.
