Looking Out My Back Window #4

Originally posted on Facebook HERE

Lotta work to do today. Gotta go in to the office. Woke up at 4am with my mind racing… why does that always happen on the days I *could* sleep in? “Murphy’s Law” of sleep I guess. Stupid Murphy  – anyway, there’s always a crazy list of to do’s at home and at the office and I’m not sure I have time to ever get to all of them. It’s ridiculous. So, what happens is it can create a kind of electricity that never goes away, never feel like I can relax because there’s always so much that needs to be done. I actually *LOVE* to do nothing. I mean nothing, just kick back and maybe listen to music, read, watch TV (I watch TV/movies without guilt, if you get the right shows it’s one of the things I love to do). But I don’t take a lot of time out to really relax. Funny how things change as you age. I remember when I was younger being able to just play guitar two hours a day, something I did regularly for years… listen to music, hang out with friends, go to the park, the library, bike/walk everywhere… and long for the days when I’d be old enough to have “freedom”… are you familiar with the story of the businessman and the fisherman?… really great perspective on life: http://paulocoelhoblog.com/…/the-fisherman-and-the-busines…/ – last week I was talking a friend of mine (yes, you Alisha M. Wielfaert), who asked me what kind of legacy I want to leave. I stumbled for an answer, which surprised me a little. Seems like the kind of thing I’d know. But it made me realize, if I don’t think about it and KNOW what I want to look back on when I’m gone, how will I know what’s really important to do today?… Please read the story of the fisherman and the businessman in the link above. Think about what kind of a legacy you’d like to leave. Is what you’re doing today going to get you there?… and for God’s sake, cut yourself and those around you a little bit of slack today. We could probably all use more sleep 🙂
