I Will Save The World Tomorrow Maybe

“Beside the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.” ”-Lin Yutang

An interesting quote by someone who was born in the 19th Century and wrote a book called, The Importance of Living. Do you ever feel like there are many things you should be doing? To have To do Lists to accomplish, to be industrious and a person of action, out in the world fighting for a cause, is what we are told is ideal. I have begun to question if that dynamic person is really who I am, ever have been, and even should aspire to be. For one I am naturally a slow starter in the morning. For another I really don’t like rushing around in a whirlwind of activity. Why is there this great admiration of so-called productivity?  Why is running around doing things, or the appearance of, held in such high esteem.  There is a lot of satisfaction to be had in following your own path and pace, to savor and appreciate life. So I will put off saving the world for now.
