What will you do today?

Do you ever feel like a fraud?

I do! Sometimes I write my blog of happiness and encouragement when I feel anything but happy or encouraged.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

~~Dalai Lama

 

In my life I often complain saying:

“We never DO ANYthing fun any more”. I complain about how “all we do is work and watch TV”.

Yet, I am the first one to plop down in front of the television and refuse to budge! On Saturday following our usual routine following Farmers Market – I said, “Let’s go to the Dog Show” to which Jenn replied “Do you really want to go stand around at the dog show after we’ve just stood for FIVE hours?” It is a common theme, I suspect in everyone’s life.

Do You Really Want To Do That Now?

However, I believe the question being asked is the wrong question. No, I didn’t want to go to the dog show and stand more after standing for hours. But, I wanted to go to the Dog Show, and now was the time available.

The question we must begin to ask is two-fold “Do you want to do it?” followed by “Do you have time right now?”

If you want to do things, you must do them.

It is a simple and obvious statement; but one that is easy to forget while on the couch.

For the record, we did go to the Dog Show on Saturday. The dogs were beautiful, we were able to spend time with friends we rarely get to see. And most importantly, those friends had chairs we could use! 🙂
