Life is too short phase

Since late this week something has been triggered in my mind, it keeps telling me life is so short so make the most of it. The impact of this has surprised me. TV has lost its appeal. Episodes of Simpsons, Family Guy and Doc Martin remained unwatched on my Sky+.

Yesterday evening I rushed around my flat going through all the domestic chores. I went to bed at about 1am. I was up at 5:30am and in Asda this morning at 6:40am for my weekly food shopping.

After I have completed this blog and my coffee, I am cycling to the office. The plan is to work till 1pm then go and see my mother followed by Starbucks for coffee and people watching.

This evening I will complete the remaining domestic chores.

Tomorrow I will probably work until 1pm. Then I may go for relaxing bike around Richmond Park followed by Starbucks and people watching again.

I will also look into at some social events I can attend next week. I am spending too much time on my own. I need to force myself to get out of my comfort zone, though I am happy with my own company. Is this what loners like me say?

I do not know what triggered all this. May be it is a realisation that it is about time I sort myself out before getting to old age. When is old age? It is getting later and later the older I get!

Old age is about 20 years older than I am at present - and I've been consistently saying that for about 20 years now!

I think it was John Lennon who said life is what happens to you when you are busy making plans for something else.

This blog is intended to reflect the highs and lows that I face day to day working as a sole practitioner.

I tend to blog regularly. I don't know why, but there is a strong need in me to blog my every day experience. I have no idea how long this will last.

All I can say is It helps me to put my thoughts, feelings and views on a blog. When writing I am not too concerned about spelling, grammar or even how I come across. I feel that if I worry about these areas, the subject matter I want to put across will not reflect how I am thinking and feeling at the time.

My blogs reflect the type of person I am. That is the nature of blogging. It is meant to reflect views and thoughts of the blogger.

I will not be to everyone's tastes. Thankfully AW has a good variety of bloggers. This means there are more than likely to be blogs more in keeping with your taste.

I am humbled by the fact that my blog is actually read! Not only this but some readers go as far as commenting.

Thank you for reading my blogs and commenting. I really do appreciate it.
