I’m writing this post on a Sunday.
A day which many of us have become conditioned to believe is a day for doing nothing.
Now I understand the need to take a break from your normal routines and just take some time to relax. In fact, I think it’s imperative that every once in a while we pause our lives and rejuvenate our minds, bodies & souls.
But we’re not rejuvenating ourselves. We’re not actually relaxing. We’re running away from our weekday life.
And that’s the Sunday predicament. We’ve come to use Sundays as an escape from the life we’re building Monday to Friday.
We try to use Sundays to numb the pain of unfulfilled dreams. We do nothing meaningful on Sundays because we want to be as far as possible from the voice that reminds us of the need to build a life that matters. The knowledge that we’re not doing anything meaningful is probably the single most ignored thought
The knowledge that we’re not doing anything meaningful is probably the single most ignored thought we’ll ever have.
So, yes, you do need to to take a break but you also need to leverage the time that everyone else is wasting. Your greatest need in your “free” time is to make it valuable by using it in some way to improve your circumstances.
