Today has been a good day in many ways. I seem to be in charge of my life again, doing the things I want to do . Just taking a walk, eating lighter, having a long bath, working on the computer seem good things to do after traveling for many days.
‘Being a passenger is more difficult than being a driver. ‘ Reading that in a book made me feel very good. Because it explained the feeling of slight unease I had been having while going along with my sister and kids.
But one truth that got dinned in again and again was ‘you can’t do it all, you have to choose’, while on vacation. You have to limit the sights you can see, the people you can meet, the number of things you can buy. And you should cut the regrets.
Leo Babauta propagates this kind of focus on his site, Zen Habits. Separate creating/producing from catching up. And I was able to follow that . And it was good. Keep reading him and it slowly sinks in.
