Same Day – Different Lifestyle

Its 6am (Wed.)

You wake up
Shower/ dress
Grab a coffee to go
Commute to work
Work 8-10hrs – Squeeze in lunch
Commute home
Prepare/ eat dinner
Shower
Go to bed

If you do this everyday with some minor adjustments, your life becomes a daily ritual that turns into a chore. I am not saying there is anything wrong with this lifestyle, many folks like the discipline and routine, but when do you take out the monotony out of it, you have this sense of excitement, something to look forward to.

Its 6am (Wed.)

You wake up
Shower/ dress
Commute, but this time to the community garden
Enjoy a cup of tea
Read the paper/ book
Volunteer planting flowers
Enjoy lunch by the gardens
Water/ walk the gardens
Commute home
Prepare/ eat dinner
Read a book
Go to bed

How did that day sound? Now I am realistic and I know it can’t be like that everyday, but wouldn’t it be so much better to live to work than work to live. We need to find a balance in ourselves and enjoy life. Work to live is a lifestyle many folks have adapted these days, but its time for a change. Its time to live to work and enjoy life. Enjoy your surroundings and all it has to offer. Enjoy the birds chirping. Feel the warmth of the sun. Gaze at the moonlight. Don’t let life pass us by without appreciating all it has to offer.

My newfound motto is: Live to Work, not Work to Live
