In Praise Of Vacation: A Week Of Thinking Big
Although it sounds a tad bit too contemporary to me, most Google searches credit Confuscious with saying ‘Choose a job that you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.’
Well, I love what I do, pretty much always have; but I also really love my husband, and really really love being married to him; being away this week has proven to be a bit of a challenge.
Working for, and mostly by myself, I’m less aware of how my mind races, how may cool ideas are being entertained, how many internal conversations I’m having at once; it’s just how the typical day goes. It’s only the presence of others that gives you pause…you know those pauses, where you immediatly want to insist “Hey, I can stop anytime I want to!”-like I was sneaking a drink, or a call to a bookie…!!
After some adjustments, it’s been a week of thinking BIG. Not ‘going multi-national’ big, not ‘how to make this into a franchise’ big, but some good overall contemplative thoughts on where I want the refreshed home to go, and how it’s going to get there. The week isn’t over yet, so stay tuned.
Meantime, a clip of one of my favorite big thinkers!
