Doing Things

I hope your week is going well and you get some time to enjoy a bit of summer relaxation. It is hard to believe we are already over half-way through June and even if it isn’t technically summer yet, it is sure feeling like summer to me. Hot weather makes me want to nap and not do much, but the more relaxed state of mind in summer also allows me to think & plan what I want to accomplish, thus this week’s quote.

"You've got your whole life to do something, and that's not very long." Ani Difranco

“You’ve got your whole life to do something, and that’s not very long.” Ani Difranco

This quote makes me take stock of what I’m doing and try to figure out if I’m moving forward in the right direction. (I know the spacing is a bit off between the first and second lines, but that’s what I get for freehanding it at work. I really need to bring in my T-Square and fountain calligraphy pens for when I do calligraphy on my break, but anyway…) Sometimes it seems like a year is so long and other times it seems like a year is hardly any time at all to create anything.

So I think about Ani Difranco’s thought that we don’t have a very long to do what we want on this planet, in this life. I hope that you are working towards what you feel is important with people who are important to you. Life’s about what we do and who we do it with, I think, and that’s true whether it is in the heat of summer or the cold of winter.

But remember, having a purpose and doing something don’t preclude us from having some summer fun and relaxation as well. Have a great one. 🙂
