the art of simply being…

is it just me, or do we all seem to live our lives in a self-induced state of frenzy? always running somewhere, making plans, ticking things off to-do lists…

but here’s the irony: how often do we get to actually fully enjoy all those things we spend so much time planning for & running to & from?

with all the advances of modern-day living, how is it that our lives seem to have become so time poor & defined by the absence of stillness… i constantly clock watch & often despair, as even the simple pleasure of flicking through a magazine becomes marred by the fear of it taking time away from potentially doing something else…

so, i’ve hatched a plan… a plan to start anew, to enjoy the moment & live in the “now”, instead of constantly in the “what next”

& so it is, by way of baby steps, i am revisiting my day-to-day priorities, including blogging…

this will be my last saturday post for a while… instead i shall dedicate saturdays to the art of simply being, in whatever form that takes…

  1. I’m totally with you. I’ve decided to stop putting pressure on myself to blog every day and just do it if it happens. I stopped Saturdays a while ago and now I’ve started doing it again, but only if I feel like it and have something in my head. Think we all need to give ourselves a break with the blogging schedules!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
