Today all I wanted to do was finish up my errands in a jiffy so I could get home, put my pjs back on, and do…well, nothing. And then I didn’t even get to my errands. Not exactly my plan for 2012. “Waste Days by Doing Nothing” isn’t a bullet point on my goal list.
After breakfast I was going through some old books on my packed bookshelves and came across one of my favorite gems from that sweet chap Mark Twain.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the tradewinds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain
Oh, Mark. Way to guilt me into living.
I think I’ll post this on my fridge so I’m motivated to do more than stand like a penguin in front of the open fridge door, waiting for food to find its way to my mouth.
