I have come to realize that I have had a “living for the weekend” mindset for quite some time, maybe the whole of my conscience life . Of course, I feel this way because I get to hang out and spend quality time with my beautiful family. This is me wanting only pleasurable experiences. I am beginning to think I am missing out on parts of life by living with this mindset.
I want to get the most out of life. That means being mindful everyday, not just on the weekends. By spending five days longing for two, I am wasting 5/7 of week.
Of course, I wish to spend my time with my beloveds. But the time away should not be spent in longing and lamenting the time apart. The time apart is essential…it’s called WORK! I should not, however, stop living because I am away. By being mindful of the experiences while away, I can become a more experienced person, and this will in-turn enhance the quality of my home relationships (does this make any sense at all?!?).
To live life to its fullest, one must live in all parts of life.
And be mindful of the importance of each part.
And not avoid that which is unpleasant, but rather accept it as part of the whole of reality.
