How often are you engaged in things that mean the most to you?
If you were to ask yourself to list the people and activities that mean the most to you, would it match what you are currently doing right now?
It could be spending quality time with your kids, truly giving them all of your attention (or with your significant other). It could be climbing a mountain, or playing guitar.
Whatever it is, there are obviously things we must do – like go to work, clean the house, do the laundry, fix the car, pay the bills, etc. But how often are you able to act as though you are truly aware of what is most important to you? Will it be this summer during a week-long vacation? Will it be this weekend? Does it happen for an hour every night? How often does it happen, and are you aware of it while it is happening?
More importantly, what do you do to resolve the inevitable conflict between your day-to-day commitments and what you truly desire? Can you honestly say that work-avoidance in the form of fluther is what you would be doing right now if you were trying to live a life that came close to what is important to you?
When do you engage in things, or spend time with the people, that mean the most to you? Honestly.
