“It is not that we have a short life to live but we waste a lot of it”

Seneca

_________________________________________________________________________

Sometimes we waste our time because we don’t have much control over what is happening to us. In this case, there’s not much we can do about it.

At other times we waste our time because we lack a definite purpose in our lives.
This we can do something about. We must take the time to ask ourselves the important questions, the ones that concern only us.

It may look like a waste of time at first, but in the long run, it will save us time.

Benjamin Franklin used to ask himself these important questions every night before he went to sleep.

What did I do wrong today?
What did I do right ?
What can I improve tomorrow?

Apparently, he did this for most of his life.

If you want to learn more about this, I recommend that you read his autobiography. It will make you realize that even if he lived more than 250 years ago, he was facing similar challenges like the ones we have to deal with today.

“The trouble with life is that there are so many beautiful women and so little time.” 

John Barrymore

 With 203 countries ( Sovereign states) to visit,

With thousands of cities to discover,

 With 6,8 billion people living on this planet,

With more than 3 000 000 wine bottles to taste,

With millions of books to read,

With thousands of movies to watch,

With so many skills to learn,

With so many things to experience,

With so many people in need or living in poverty,

I could go on and on…

And  a potential of only 36525 days to live.

How dare you being bored?

“Don’t ever be afraid to admit you were wrong. It’s like saying you’re wiser today than you were yesterday.”

— Robert Newell, humorist

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

It takes a lot of humility to admit when we are wrong. I hate to admit when I’m wrong, but I like the idea that I am getting wiser.

The sooner we admit our faults, the more life experience and wisdom we acquire. It saves a lot of time and useless suffering.

Which one will win?

Pride or Wisdom?

Through my efforts, I gain the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

To live one day at a time;
Enjoy one moment at a time;
Accept the hardships as natural balance;
Taking this beautiful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting in the balance;
That I may be able to see myself as happy in this life
.
