Remember what I said when I started out? I'm trying to halve my stuff and bills so I can double my time and fun?
I went on a long walk this morning - it's a four mile loop. I stopped along the way to do my banking and grocery shopping and lugged the groceries the last mile home. It was all great, actually, until I got home and saw the time.
The whole morning was gone. Wasn't I supposed to exercise, go to the bank, do the shopping and....?
The weird thing about setting your life up so that you get to spend your time the way you want to is that then you actually do get to spend your time the way you want to.
But...isn't life supposed to be hard? Aren't you supposed to spend large parts of it wracked with guilt and resentment? I always thought so.
Turns out I was wrong. That's not to say there aren't still icky parts. There are always toilets to clean. And snow to shovel. But I love the fact that taking a four mile walk is something I'm supposed to do - not just something I might get to do once in awhile.
