The truth is that the world’s demands are infinite, and your time is not. Things will always be left undone—just make sure they aren’t the things that matter the most. ~ Martha Beck.
I think there’s something wrong with me, because I’m lazy.
Maybe I have some sort of disorder. As I’ve mentioned before, I tend to panic when there is too much going on at once.
I’m a little ashamed that I’m a lazy person. I’m not always up for driving far to do something (more than 30 minutes) or going to some big event. I have to psych myself up for those things. I’d much rather hang out at home with family and friends.
It’s not that I don’t take care of my responsibilities, because I get those done. I just make a schedule and spread them out so I don’t feel bombarded with everything at once. I make sure that I have time in between work/chores each day for me to relax. If something slightly throws off my schedule, I do okay, but if it gets completely thrown off, I’m in discombobulated mode.
I don’t understand people whose schedules are packed with no time for socializing (with family & friends), no time for relaxation, and little time to take care of their personal needs. Even when these people have five minutes free, they’re doing paperwork or computer work, and I don’t mean social media, but actual work. I’m exhausted just writing about it.
Dolce far niente. In Italian it means, [how] sweet to do nothing. So, maybe I’ll use my Italian blood as an excuse and say I was born this way. Or, maybe I was conditioned. Who knows?
Anyway, this is my lead-in to say that I have a lot going on in this month of September. Since I know in advance, I can maneuver my schedule. Some of my usual activity may go by the wayside. After today, I’ll visit blogs when I can, but won’t be around as often. Once things settle down again, I’ll be hanging out more often.
Stay cool my blogging buddies and take some time for dolce far niente.
