monday morning motivation

i took a week-long hiatus from blogging, mostly because i had a week off from work and was so very happy to not have to sit in front of a computer all day. i probably turned my laptop on twice to do a few things that would have been too cumbersome on my phone (i.e. paying bills). my time away from the computer reaffirmed what i’ve known for some time now: i absolutely do not want the rest of my life to consist of sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. there is too much else to be done, too much life to be lived. let it be known that i don’t for a second look down on anyone who chooses to live the 9-5 life (or who is forced to due to circumstances beyond his/her control) but for me, it often feels like i’m wasting away. i love too much to take an impromptu day trip out of the city, to be able to do a vinyasa yoga class in the middle of the day when the studio is blissfully empty because everyone else is at work, or to volunteer with doggies at the last minute, just because i feel like it. having time off to live that life and reflect on the possibility of having that be my reality ALL of the time was priceless. and it motivates me to do whatever needs to be done to make it happen. this is one of those rambling posts that’s more about me just thinking out loud/convincing my own self to take action. but if it can motivate one other person to reexamine his or her life and think, “you know what, yeah. life is short and i should be doing xyz instead”, then it will have served a larger purpose. let us get out there and make our dreams a reality.
