I want to try and post something inspirational every Monday but I don’t want to sound too preachy or have a holier than thou approach to it. Hopefully you’ll find something useful in these posts.
As a student, I hardly ever have time to do all the things that I want to do because I insist on dedicating a lot of time to my books. Every now and again someone will invite me somewhere and I’d turn them down or if I go, I’d panic at the prospect of “wasting” time that I could be dedicating to my books.
Yesterday I was at a pool party in Groenkloof, Pretoria and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I let go of my negative thoughts towards “having a good time over studying” for the majority of the day and I had the best time.
What I realise is that telling myself “you really shouldn’t be doing this” as I do something that I’m enjoying, doesn’t do me any good. From now on, I vow to enjoy the moment and to relish the time. After all, the brief “time out” will make me more effective later as I won’t be frustrated due to over studying (if there is such).
So my advice to you? Don’t contaminate the good times with worry. You’re not doing yourself any favour. Enjoy every moment!
Peace, love and all that good stuff!
