The idea that you can achieve happiness by inaction or by passively and uncommittedly ‘enjoying yourself’.
For me, this is about the need to take action.
I am very, very much a couch potato. I have always had a big problem with that. I tend to come back from work, plop down on the couch, and just spend way, way too much time on Twitter and You Tube.
The whole reason I call myself Emma online is because, in Jane Austen’s Emma, Emma compiles a list of books to improve her mind and she never reads any of them.
I am that way too. I buy lots of books, but then don’t read them. Or listen to the Audible books I have.
Either way, I need to commit to taking a more active role in my leisure activities, and in volunteering as well.
Next season, I am going to volunteer as an usher for Dobama Theater. I may not be able to do it every show, but I will find a way.
