Quality of life along this journey

” Since from you shall come a Ruler, who is to Shepard my people Israel”.

Mt 2;6b

We all get so wrapped up in our Professional lives, that we forget to simply take some ” ME” time as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we grow up and become a productive member in this Society, we become all about our jobs, we become about making money so we can survive in this society to the point, we then become lost from all the true beauty all around us. Sometimes we don’t realize of what we are doing til it is too late, then when we finally wake up to our own realities, we get depressed of the fact that so much has passed us by and we haven’t even taken the time to enjoy any of it.

Now I totally get the fact that we need to work and build up our nest eggs, but what good is that nest egg, if we don’t take the ” ME” time to enjoy it? I get the fact that we find a Company to work in and are happy where we are, so we then work as much and often as we can, to earn all that we can, all while putting aside that “ME” time for later, but sometimes that later comes too us too late, then we look back at what we missed, of which we become depressed when we look back. There are also these life events that come to us with some being, small and mild while others taking control of us. We then bury our selves in our work of our jobs, to try to move forward without feeling the pain from these events? We then become lost within ourselves without taking any kind of “ME” time at all.

We all need this all important ” ME” time, from time to time. This is how we recharge ourselves, this is how we get out and explore all the true beauty around us, while we let this beauty heal us from our troubles, heal us from the stress of our work, so we than can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life. Sometimes this ” ME” time simply consists of, taking to Mother Nature with some camping and hiking, even if it is just you and Mother Nature, just getting out there and healing yourself from the daily grind. Sometimes it is finding a hobby like The sport of Bowling, something you grow to love and excel in, bowling in a league or two, then showing what you can do in a tournament on the weekends. When these activities are not there and we are lost within the clouds of our judgments, from the daily grind of our jobs, we then feel incomplete as a person, while all else passes us by.

I get the fact that we need some money to enjoy the ” ME” times, yes it is okay too build up the nest eggs, but it is also important to learn to balance your time between the work and the ” ME” time, without getting lost within the corporate world. The corporate world is fine, but sometimes we let it dictate where we are going, instead of us dictating where we want to go. Within this society we walk today and the way the corporate world changes daily, we then fear that the change will leave us on the outside looking in, which we then do whatever within our jobs, to what we think as becoming valuable to the company we work, but in reality these companies really, could care less of who we are, especially if we are not producing for them, this is when we get lost within and totally forget that all important “ME” time.

We all need to recharge and clear the cob webs from our minds from time to time, find an activity that helps us do just that, so we can focus on ourselves, as we heal ourselves from the daily grind, heal ourselves from the pains that come to hurt us throughout this journey, when we don’t take the time to recharge, then we lose focus on where we are going and more importantly, where we want to go moving forward. This journey through life really isn’t that hard when we do it correctly, but that is the problem……….. we get lost within the clouds of our judgments so much that, we let everything else dictate where we are going, instead of we ourselves dictating where we want to go.

” Good quality of life is we ourselves taking the proper ” ME” time to recharge and refocus”

” The corporate world will consume us if we let it, we just have to find the right balance between “ME” time and work time”

” A nest egg is good for the latter of the journey, as long as we don’t let the latter pass us by without enjoying it”

” We all need to recharge and clear our heads from time to time, so we can move forward better and stronger”
