I sat staring at the water fountain and couldn’t help but think. I’m enjoying my trip and my time away from work. I work hard and earn my money, as many others out there do. But what I realized is that we aren’t often able to just enjoy life.
Think about it. This is my average day: gym, work, decompress, bed, repeat.
Sometimes I’m lucky if I even get to decompress. And then my days are spent making up for lost time during the week. We do laundry, run errands, and deal with any other life logistics.
When do we stop and enjoy life? Why is it that we actually have to require vacations in order to get relaxation and life enjoyment?
I’m not saying I want to be one of those people who is just handed anything they want or ask for, but I’d like to figure out how to work less, play more and live life.
Stop and think about that.
While you do, here’s a sneak peak at my trip so far. More details to come later…
I still want you to go back to Mike’s and get a cannolli. I’m sure the Boston Cream Pie is fabulous… but still… 😉
Enjoy Boston- it’s one of my FAVORITE cities!!
So very true. The way work is structured is that you get your “break” when you retire, but the way SS and the stock market are trending, anyone under 40 is SOL on retiring. It’s sort of a giant ponzi scheme at this point with those on the bottom scratching our heads and those on top hoping it can hold up for another decade or two.
I was there too! I love that you got a cannoli already. Seriously, go to Modern Pastry. They’re better. They have chocolate covered ones. 😉
I haven’t posted any of my pix yet. I think I’m going to use them for a post I’m doing sometime this week about designing photo collages for blogs.
