Ponderings – Life’s a Marathon

Do you ever think about how often we ever stop and think? I swear, sometimes it feels like my brain’s sprinting towards a finish line that it’ll never reach. When did everything become so stressful, when did our schedules suddenly fill up and leave us with no time for the things we actually enjoy? 

We’re busy, I get it. But remember, like any journey, life’s a marathon, not a sprint. You wouldn’t want to sprint ahead the first minute then burn yourself out, right? So just like in a marathon, it’s OK to slow down, take a break. 

I’ll drive my point home with this: the best time to make time for yourself is when you have none.

How we start our mornings can have a huge impact on our attitudes for the rest of the day.

Ponderings – Work

I’ve found that we can essentially live our lives by one of two ways: living to work, or working to live. The former entails a life of enslavement to never-ending labor, while the latter one of tirelessly slaving away to buy enough time in order to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We truly are thrust between a rock and a hard place.

Though personally, I’d rather choose neither. I said “essentially”, not “solely”. Surely, there must be a way to simply live?
