794 : What motivates me….

For me every act of a living day, is usually filled with a passion and intensity, one usually reserves for “special” activities. I really live life like that. I like my cooking, my (endless) cups of tea, my friends, my wife, my family, my writings, my music, my sister……I really enjoy all those moments. Most of all, I have consistently enjoyed every day of my 13 years at work.

I remember that at some point in the past, I was classified as a “workaholic” (as late as 2007). I thankfully no longer serially work, but given a choice, I will switch to that life at a moment’s notice.

I really love to fill my life (as if, almost, time were running out….paranoia, anyone??)

Strangely for the first time in my entire life, I am seriously questioning, what I am doing. I have never needed that luxury so far, because invariably, I have been so busy, and have been enjoying so much, that I never paused to think.

For me, work, family (I have none to boast of – my circle is my family), music, books, food….all of these have to be fun. They must induce activity in my brain, and happy activity, at that.

So why now? Why pause and think ?

Maybe its time to disconnect completely and re-read Alice in Wonderland !!

Alice came to a fork in the road.  "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

(~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland)
