cakap cakap…Monday Morning.
Selamat Pagi Malaysia.
I do not know what you know of life., but even as I think about your life, this much I know of mine. Today, Monday 8th March 2021, I awoke at precisely 4 am. Not because I have to but because I want to. I have had enough sleep and a new week, beckons. After a suitable few moments of reprise and taking stock of what it is that I have to do today (nothing but write) and what it is that I want to do today (write), I brewed myself a long black Nespresso coffee, walked to my keyboard, sat down and told myself “W R I T E !!!”. And so my day starts.
How did your day start? With the alarm clock telling you that you MUST wake up? With your befuddled brains, so early in the morning, telling you that another day of work awaits? With your whole self telling you that it will be another day of toil just to keep that roof over your head? Another day of toil that brings no joy or fulfilment to your physical self. Nor does it nourish your mental state or bring enrichment to your soul.
Not for me these things!
At 73, maybe, time is not on my side. But what need is there for me to want of time? These days life for me is to do only the things that I want to do. I am not troubled by what day it is, what time I have left before noon and lunch, nor am I beholden to any other schedules, any other “to do list,” but mine.
But these pleasant state of affairs are not achieved without a nodding sacrifice of the things that matters to most of you. Friends, money, and a lack of purpose and wants in life are essential ingredients of the life that I now lead. But I am okay without all that. Life is still good.
Once again, Selamat Pagi to one and all. Go figure out if life is good for you!
