Did today matter? Why or why not?
When I’m not living my perfect day, I’ve learned to examine the context surrounding my behavior, and question the assumptions behind not only my perfect day but what conventional wisdom says is good, right and acceptable. Most of all I’ve learned to forgive myself.
“I’m a project based person but I need a clean process… My perfect day has to be different everyday. It has to have flexibility to support my interests and necessities at the time… Having a process allows me to introduce variety and spontaneity in a much more specific and clear way and allows me to assess it.”
“To create something is to add to the world” and “I’m the happiest when I’m connecting with people who elevate my consciousness and make me feel connected and with purpose.”
“I think there would be some drugs involved to be honest… and some elements of hedonism and a lot of music. I think I would enjoy a mix of those 3 things.”
“People are greedy and always want more: lots of money, girls, fun nights out. When you’re young you want everything fast, you don’t know what’s important. As you get older, you realize that the things that matter are the small things, the things you take for granted. You never realize what you have until you lose it.”
“I love my [retired] life right now. Life is good. I can’t complain. It’s wonderful.”
“I got to think about what I wanted to be and I got to spend it with the people I love.”
“A perfect day is totally relaxed and I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, spend whatever I want, and be with whoever I want.”
“My perfect day is simple. Beautiful weather, good food, lots of time, with family – that’s it.”
