Wow! Wow! Wow! Have almost forgotten how much fun it is to put fingers to keyboard and pour out your heart and thoughts without restrictions, the joy and exhilaration that comes from communicating with another, the beauty of shared experiences, ideas, emotions, etc.
How I have missed this favourite pass time of mine. The good news is my fellow bloggers I can feel the excitement again, have found the joy in me. The missing piece of the puzzle has been solved am back with my first love, I can feel her moan under the touch of my fingers as I caress her trying to find the right word or phrase to go in my article.
Countless time, we’ve caught ourselves doing less of the things we enjoy doing, not because we don’t want to do them but because we suddenly lost our joy, we are no longer passionate about the little things that mean so much to us. The good news is; you can resuscitate yourself back to an earlier time when you needed no motivation to get your favourite activity done.
What you must do is quite simple; you must be ready to use up your reserve energy in order to get the task done. Quit giving yourself excuses- I’ve got no time, it’s not worth the bother etc. whatever lights up your life is worth keeping. You must begin to appreciate everything that adds value to your life no matter how choked up your schedule is, you must learn to keep a balance and create time for the things that bring you joy.
What is life if you give up activities that brighten your life because you feel guilty when others try to paint a picture of how hard they work and have got no time for frivolities, do not berate yourself over their own failings, you must not live your life like theirs. No matter your work schedule or your projects and numerous future plans, you must create time for the little things that would make you happy.
Why work so hard, without rewarding yourself. Would you rather fill your life with so much activity called “work “ only to wake up on the other side of life and realise that you had no time for family, friends or indulge in simple pleasures of life or an hobby because you thought them frivolous? We are not robots or machines, though machines come with default settings, they can be reprogrammed. So, I enjoin you to reprogram your life, take time for that secret fantasy of yours, that hobby, that lover or spouse, your kids, family whatever it is that lighten up your life.
This is what you must do. Remember, Life is too short for you to play God. Fill it up with precious moments of value, so when you look back you can smile with satisfaction that you lived a good life. Ciao
