I find it very valuable to have time excess. To not have to rush from one place to the other, frantically because if you miss one appointment your whole day is ruined. Sometimes something comes up and then it is very handy to have time to enjoy it. When last did you look at a sunset? Yesterday, last week or can’t remember? Tell me in the comments below. I don’t think everyone enjoys sunsets, but I am sure there are some among my readers who may not think that they like sunsets. If they see one perchance they will enjoy it. I don’t think everybody has to look at the sunsets, but what bothers me is that the ones that do never really get the time.
A LIE. Everybody gets a whole day of at least 10 hours of daylight to spend as they choose. When people say that they don’t have enough time they actually meant that they don’t want to do the suggested activity. It is not important enough. It is a politeness that I personally do not like.
If one is always busy it means that you have decided exactly how you want to spend each part of your day. You know about everything that might happen and you have decided that it is not as important as the planned events. You know exactly which direction you are going and that the time commitments that you have made will move you towards the next event. Fine, fine indeed if you have thought about all the possible actions that you will do each day. The possibilities are endless and do you really know what you will feel tomorrow afternoon? Frequently I have found that my fancy wanders in another direction.
In my opinion the cost associated with a fully-booked out life it that you miss opportunities to do very fun, exciting and eye-opening activities. To hang-glide, to take a walk after the rain or connect with family and loved ones after a long day. Most important is that when you have nothing to do and you get time to actually think the most wonderful things tend to happen. Many times I have discovered something that I have forgotten about and that fell through the cracks of my life. Then after I have kicked against boredom a few times, when my options are limited, then the magic happens. Or you just get bored.
Remember to comment on when last you saw a sunset. Include the occasion and the cloud cover for bonus points!
To happiness, and beyond!
