Beluga Sense- Reserve Some Time for Fun
It’s important to set goals and dreams, but the actual recipe for happiness rests in your true satisfaction with what you are doing at present. You could be perfectly content but then be swayed or easily thrown off track by the good intentions of others with their implications that what you are now doing pales in comparison to your true aptitude. Discontent creeping in robs you of your present contentment and you hasten towards their chosen goal. Listen politely, but stay firm in your convictions; you alone know what’s best for you.
Another aspect of attaining your goals is setting the pace that best suits you. You don’t have to justify yourself to anyone. Life is not about getting to your next destination post haste; it’s about enjoying the sights, smells and having pleasant experiences along the way. That is what living is.
The most well adjusted adult is the one that always reserves time for having fun. Remember the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” so do not forsake this essential part of living.
Plan some recreational time regularly. As a responsible person it’s up to you to take charge and set limits on your work and play. There will always be more work to fill in your time. No one ever, at the end of their allotted time, said, “I should have worked more.”
Take heed and reserve a defined number of hours to do with as you desire and don’t let anything intrude on this well earned respite.
