Not all that long ago my life was different. I worked constantly, evenings, weekends, and even missed or rescheduled holidays. It seemed like I was stuck in some kind of repeating loop where I was doing the same thing every day. I was constantly busy but I could see no evidence that I was accomplishing anything on a personal or professional level. I never seemed to find the time to enjoy life.
During the last few years my life underwent an upheavel with a number of changes. I work at a different job where I do not have to work outside of office hours. I have the time and freedom to do things when I leave for the day. Freedom! Does it get any better? No it does not.
The last few years I may be overdoing it with little road trips here and there to catch up on all of the little things I missed. There will be a time when I will not be able to do any of this so I am doing it now. The thing is I feel more alive than I have in the past. I have time to see and experience things.
You cannot take any of this with you. We come this way but once. Take some time to enjoy the journey.
