The snail, the tortoise and me…

Posted on

All slow or more accurately, laid back. The snail is notorious for his/her lack of speed (as in “at a snail’s pace”), and the tortoise isn’t far behind (or so the hare thinks). Me, I’m pretty quick at work but come the weekend, I’ll have one more cup of tea, read another chapter, draw a little more…or on a good day I’ll bake a brownie, have another cup of tea, read and draw a little more. All of a sudden it’s where has the day gone? And then the guilt for not having done something constructive like housework kicks in. What I fail to realize is that what I did was what made me happy. The housework will get done eventually. I wonder if the snail or the tortoise have these pangs of conscience?

  1. They’ve got the right idea, I reckon, slow down and take it easy. There should always be time for another cup of tea.

  2. I believe that doing things that makes us happy is good medicine for a healthy life. I also believe that, if I have to fight my way to getting into my place, then, it is time to do housework. We must enjoy life to the fullest today, tomorrow will get there when it does. Happy trails
