I recently read this quote, “The time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted.” My initial reaction was it written by some slacker who probably spends hours surfing the internet and trolling through Facebook. Then I read the quote again and the word “enjoy” struck a chord.
Most of our lives are overscheduled, rushed and running on autopilot. By the end of the day, we crawl into bed and the activities of the day are a blur. Did we enjoy the day or at least enjoy a few moments of the day? Have we lived the day in the moment or are we just trying to make it to Friday?
These questions crossed my mind when I read the quote. On the other hand, I was able to let out a sigh of relief. All of the time I thought I was “wasting” consumed with blogs on writing and author’s websites hasn’t been wasted because I enjoy that time, plus I believe it’s making me a better writer. I can now enjoy my addiction without the guilt.
Are you doing something you enjoy that you thought was wasting time?
