More Monday Musing

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything. What we think we become.”
Buddha

Last week I decided that at my vast age, I should slow down somewhat.  With all my activities I am out every day with something to do, people to meet, an interest group to attend, and ailing friends to visit.  I changed some visits, to meeting fortnightly instead of weekly and decided there were some interest groups that I could continue to attend in an ad hoc way, and I would join no further groups.

Forward to today.  Monday 9 May 2022.  The first day of my replanned life.  A committee meeting before our monthly Probus meeting, a total of four hours.  So, with my new plan in place, I should have decided that was enough and then gone home.  Err – what do they say about the best laid plans?  After declining the invitation for at least a couple of years I succumbed and went to the book club meeting directly after Probus.  This meant that I was out for seven hours today.  I enjoyed the book club.  Will I actually join and continue to meet with them each month?  I am undecided – so watch this space!

Note – I have been talking about my ‘vast’ age for the past eleven years. What follows vast – vaster?

  1. It’s hard to decide how to spend your time. As long as you are enjoying the activity, it’s fine. I dropped out of one writer’s group as they became too negative and kept repeating themselves. I don’t have time for that. I always have time to discuss books!

  2. I have to remind myself to slow down everyday. Recently, I overdid again and then bombed out for a week. It was lovely. I flaked out on the couch and read books. I hope to remember the experience!

    1. My real problem is I forget that I am not 54 anymore and I am in fact 84. I will still continue to do many of the things that I love but I will pace myself a little from here on. Well that’s the plan anyway.
