During this season, many friends are on vacation, some of them go to the sea shore, some of them move into the mountains, and some others go back to their hometown. Because there is more vacant space and time for them. In most of the time of our life, every day seems to be filled up by all kinds of affairs, which make us out of breath. We are full of ambition on career and life, and at the same time we are expecting the “time and space to rest”.
We have the habit to let things pile up . There are always too many tasks to be done in order to release the worrying about the uncertainty of the future, there are always too many goals to achieve in order to fill in the ever-changing desires, there is always too much material to gain in order to satisfy the unnecessary needs. The space of the brain is full, the space on the table is jammed up, the space of life is blocked.
We have the inertia to squeeze into the time. Because we can not squeeze the time, so we have to squeeze everything into the time. Because we are unwilling to part with anything we want, so we have to squeeze everything into the time. Because we believe that more things can make life more meaningful, so we have to squeeze everything into the time. The time is never enough, and we are squeezed by ourselves.
To give an everyday vacation to yourself starts from understanding the “out of limit”. There’s no limit on tasks to make the future perfect. The goals can never catch up with limitless desires. The materials can never be enough to fill the unexpected needs. The limited you will be exposed by endless things.
To have an everyday vacation, we must learn to “fit” the time with selective things, “give up” extra desires, and “stop” at the cliff of longing for instant profits and success.
Every morning, look at yourself in the mirror with a smile, and say: “have a nice vacation!”
