“May you live every day of your life.” Jonathan Swift
You know those people. They are NOT couch potatoes. They never seem to rest. They are always thinking and planning and looking forward to tomorrow. They are always trying to get smarter, stronger. They are criticized by their antithessises (sp?): they never seem satisfied.
They can drive you crazy if you are a laid back dude (or a laid back dude-wannabe.)
We have among us a growing crop of humanity who can never fit enough into one day. They work or talk or think from the minute they wake up until they close their eyes. Often they wake up in the middle of the night and think some more.
What is wrong with them? (Nothing.)
Why can’t they relax? (They refuse to sleep their lives away.)
We call them “go-getters” or say they are “driven” but, really, they are hell-bent on living every day of their lives. Some people just have the knack for living and others don’t even know they should get up and get going and stop resting–stop taking up space, using atoms aimlessly, consuming oxygen, producing carbon dioxide and more smelly waste.
Life is too short to sit on your ass and miss out. Sure, you need to rest sometimes, to rejuvenate and gear up for the next blast of living. Here’s an early New Year’s resolution : start living every day of your life.
Get off that couch and get on with your life. There is so much to do and so little time before you will be old and your life will be over. Don’t end up too old to get off the couch where you spent your life ignoring your bucket list of regrets. Think about it.
