week 17/day 6

After the kids begin to get used to their new school, I slowly begin to get bored.

I started to read a book I found in the bookstore, called “do less: A minimalist guide to a simplified, organized, and happy life”. The book is exactly what I want to know about the mentality of organizing.  Despite the complexity of organizing, the book is written in a style that’s very easy to read.  Jonat’s message on the point of organizing is when a person can organize his/her environment, s/he will do less and enjoy life more.  She asks an important question, “What do you want to do with your life?”

“What do I want to do with my life?” This must be my favorite question because it gives me a sense of direction as I often find myself lost. And the answer that pops up on my mind whenever I see the question is, “I really want to write”.  Writing is my way to de-clutter my mind, a need the same as organizing my environment, both relate to my immediate health.  Writing makes me happy.  Now I think of it, I am actually proud of my work because I care about it.

I’d Rather

What’s the point of writing?

I’m not sure, yet I write

What’s the point of fighting?

I’m not sure, yet I fight

What’s the point of drinking coffee?

I think I just like coffee

What’s the point of telling the same old stories?

I’m not sure, yet I could be getting tired of them

What’s the point of living as if making mistakes seems to be its validation?

I’m not sure, yet I’d rather be making them.
