The Real Problem With Leisure?

“The real problem of your leisure is how to keep other people from using it”.Anonymous

Ain’t it the truth? Most of it is our own fault though. It is for me anyway.

Always trying to do better.  Always trying to please others.  Never satisfied with the status quo. Over-achiever. Workaholic. Can’t say no.  The list goes on and on.

Here’s another truth, that no one wants to admit. We control our choices.  Not the outcomes, but our choices.

While the outcomes are in the hands of a power we can’t begin to imagine, our choices are not.  Our choices are ours.

You’d think we would have this figured out by mid life.  Why is this so difficult to remember?

Carl Jung Quote

Carl Jung quote:

“Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment, and especially on their children, than the unlived lives of their parents”.

Mid Life can produce an awareness, for many of us, that we’ve become workaholics.

In our quest to do a good job at work and build our self esteem, self worth, we unknowingly sabotage our relationships with the people closest to us.

It took a long time to get here. It will take a long time to go back. Better late than never? Hope so.

Get started today.  One small step.  If not today, when?
