There are times in our life when we feel clear-headed and ask ourselves questions about our own existence.
Questions like “What purpose do I have?” or “What does the future hold for me?” haunt our thoughts and they almost always go unanswered.
“Why is that?” you may ask.
Well, I suppose that’s because we all feel inside that we are meant for bigger and better things than the ones that we’ve accomplished so far.
We feel that we haven’t accomplished enough, like there’s got to be more to life than chasing after money, a partner, a house and a better job.
This feeling exists in each and every one of us. Some of us, if not the majority, choose to ignore it and bury it under of ton of activities that keep us busy.
We want that, we consciously choose to keep ourselves occupied, because of one simple fact: we just don’t know what to do with ourselves when we have nothing to do.
That’s why, when we get a little free time, we choose to spend it mostly in front of the TV or computer.
If we had a pie graph that would represent our life, our free time will constitute a very very small slice, barely visible.
Which are some of the big slices? Sleep and work. Because we can’t function without sleep, that leaves us with the activity that eats up most of our life, generally between 25 to 35 percent: work.
