I was just reading this article by Leo Babauta on Passionate people: http://zenhabits.net/surround/. The article got me so excited about life and adding that spark to life itself. I started visualizing a dream lifestyle and could picture most of it. I imagined waking up in the morning with that excitement that I normally only feel on weekends. I would love to wake up to a simple empty room with loads of greenery and sunshine pouring in instead of all the furniture. Morning would then become a treat everyday. I would love to open my tiny wardrobe with very few clothes but each piece my favourite so that dressing up will be exciting. I picture my bathroom having just 5-7 items of essential use.
I picture having an extremely exciting routine where there is room for passion, room for development, room to come up with great ideas. A place where i go and teach a bit, learn a bit, are in the company of great working minds, where time flows so quickly that i would need to remind myself to stop work and go back home. I visualize ample time for indulging in sports or activities so that I feel great on the inside and outside of my body. I would love to achieve the highest level of physical fitness, go beyond the limitations of my own body. Most importantly I visualize most evenings spent outdoor in the midst of nature.
Right now a lot of material clutter needs to leave my hands. I want to free myself of this responsibility of taking care of stuff. Next would be mental clutter, for which a lot of introspection will be required. I am finding my purpose in life. I am looking for a greater level of satisfaction from life and that will happen once I can feel the spark on a daily basis.
Time is running out and I do not want to look back at life and feel I wasted my energy in a corporate world, in a cluttered home, in not indulging into my passion, in letting my youth become stale or in simply living just for the weekends. I want to instead use this limited time to learn skills, sharpen my own brain and serve community. I want to feel proud of my contribution to a person, community or the world.
