This & That Including What Ails

Lazy In Life

on August 31, 2018

I sometimes feel that I am lazy in life.

I am lazy in trying to figure of what is next in life. Maybe it is because, too much planning gets me no where. I worked very hard all my life but sometimes I feel that I have little to show.

Yet, when I compare self with the less haves, it is not too bad.

But when I compare with the top notch, then it is bad.

So it is a case of comparatively speaking scenario.

I feel that I have arrived. I need not strive for more.

I am happy in my own skin, I sashay in togs that I am comfortable in and do not meet dress code standards except for when meeting Dukes or Duchess of Yore. Where I do not meet, I avoid Black Tie events.

I am not one for parading on any red carpet.

I am a quiet one and literally like to blend in with the walls.

I need no fanfare.

But I arrive in style…in my own style, often mistaken as the cook or handy person.

I don’t care!

At work, I do my job and keep a low profile.

I need not be getting along famously well with everyone.

I need to keep an arm’s length so that if I need to tick off anyone, I will can do so without remorse.

Ms Snooty asked me how do I sleep at night when I have to terminate the services of people or tick people off.

It is all in the job and in discharging my duties, I ensure I am objective and fair in assessing the talents of people under my charge. If they cannot be redeployed, then I really have no choice but to let them go.

I still feel I am lazy in life.

Should I be striving for that extra dollar?

Should I be seeking a mansion?

Should I be seeking a top job? *Note to self, been there, done that and the office politics “killed” me by sapping my humanity and compassion for people and life.

Should I be out there seeking a spouse or partner?

I have much given up on this as this person does not exist. It just manifests as MR EX – a money grabber and extremely dangerous man who will stop at nothing to achieve what he wants. Great for business but makes a poor life partner is my feel.

Yet, our karma intertwines us.

Yes, I am lazy in life and FAT! Sighhhh…

    I think we all have moments of introspection, wondering if we should be doing more. But as you say, you have Been there, Done that for most things. If you have enough to live on, then why stress yourself out more? There’s nothing wrong with a quiet life.
    A good post GH πŸ˜€

    the word is lazy people are those who work smart, I am sure you fall in that category but you are a do-gooder too and want to please others or make this world a better place. good to evaluate our take and position in life every once in awhile. but don’t let it demoralise you ok. we are our own best company, we don’t need someone to make us feel that we are the best or be a partner to define us. it’s a hard pill to swallow and i learnt the hard and bitter way. be well my friend, know you have value and its ok to be lazy some of the time – you have earned it.
