I have not read The Hunger Games, and I don’t intend to see the movie, either.
I don’t clip coupons, hunt for them online, or keep up with which business is offering freebies.
I don’t make my own laundry detergent, and would not concern myself with properly sewing on a button unless my life depended on it.
I’ve never been to a Zumba or spin class.
What in the world DO I do?
Only things I love.
Today is the only May 4, 2012, that will ever exist. Even as I type, seconds slip by that I can never regain. My itty bitty life will only last for a short period of time. I plan on spending that time doing only the things I love.
Unfortunately, part of living in reality is realizing that not everything I do will thrill my soul. In order to earn an income, maintain a sanitary and tidy living environment, and complete the never-ending list of other duties and chores necessary to function well, I know that sometimes, I will have to spend my time on less-than-thrilling subject matter. I must manage my bank account online. Occasionally, I am required to wait in line at the grocery store. I also have to scrub scum out of the bathtub periodically. During those times, I do my best to focus on the positive and maintain gratitude for the fact that I’m breathing and able to do those very things I tend to despise.
Aside from the necessary evils of life, I want to spend my time doing only what I love.
I love helping other people and find fulfillment in encouraging, serving, teaching, and sharing with others.
I love learning about things that interest me.
I love being outdoors regardless of what activity I’m engaged in.
I love God, and I love spending time learning about Him and getting closer to Him.
I love my family and friends. The more time I can spend with them, the better.
I’m really not a grumposaurus who hates all fads, trends, and fun things. I just don’t have time to do every single halfway appealing thing that comes my way. If I keep it simple, I’m able to devote myself to what matters to me. And if I’m focused on what matters, I’m one happy camper.
