Time spend enjoying is not a waste of time. So easy to say, so difficult to follow and even difficult to instill in your life. After all, our time on Earth is limited (If we have more time elsewhere is still under very secret scientific debate). So where was I? Aah yes! time and enjoyment and guilt, where do I even begin?
I spent an entire day yesterday reading a “webtoon”. Yes, I spend more than 11 hours reading a webtoon, it took me that long since I am sick and my fingers pain even if I only used the up & down arrows. Gosh I want to scale K2 >.< When will I do that? See I am getting distracted, if only my fingers didn’t ache this would be so easier! So I read an entire comic strip yesterday and it was so much fun. I wanted to laugh so hard at times and I did laugh some. Oh yes before I forget again, the webtoon was about a girl who has just started her major at a university and how her life unfolds in the two years. Yep it’s a romcom and I loved reading a romance manhwa after so long. Here’s the link: Cheese-In-The-Trap
Those that don’t know, Korean Comics are called “Manhwa” and Japanese comics are called “Manga” and obviously American & European comics are called….umm well “Comics”. I find myself reading them more than often and I must say I am amazed by the sheer talent of the artists who create these stories, I am so thankful to all you creative people out there, you make my life so much more fun. So back to Cheese in The Trap, it’s a wonderful refreshing Manhwa and I read that there’s going to be a television drama coming out on the same theme since January 4th. I am so excited but I will watch once the drama has been completed.
And now back to the main topic…
Time Spent Enjoying Is Not Waste Of Time
These days I find people calculating what they should do with their free time. How much free time can they afford and how much of it should be spent with their families and having some me time and what not. I find people stressed for little amount of time they have so much to do and I ask myself why do I take my time so leisurely? Am I so free that I don’t run with time? Do I not want to achieve things too? I hardly make any lists to follow. People call me whimsical and they tell me to get my head checked because it’s full of silly ideas but I am glad at least my family is with me, yes they scold me too but they love me more. 🙂
I spent an entire day reading a webtoon sitting in my bed doing nothing else. No productive work. I loved it, yes I felt like how can I waste my time like this but then again what else was I supposed to do? I could read or write but I couldn’t concentrate at all. At night I lay in my bed thinking about all those times when I spent time enjoying myself and later on beat myself up for wasting my time, thinking about all those things I could have done instead. Luckily I found that I have less of the guilt bone inside me. I have rarely beat myself up for reading novels/papers and magazines during my college years instead of focusing more on my study and getting the first grade in college, it was a jungle circus out there in those years and I hardly gave a damn. So why would I worry much about losing my time now? I don’t know maybe I have too many things I want to do and my health isn’t supporting so I am being neurotic maybe! Hmm, all the more reason for me to be fired up to do better.

I find that doing what you love is much better then to do things that you hardly get just because everyone else is doing it. Sometimes we go out of our limits to reach the high goals that others set up for ourselves instead of going in the direction of things that we actually would love to be doing. Maybe it’s because fear overcomes us instead of us overcoming fear. Oh since I am talking about fear, I also watched “The Good Dinosaur” and I found the movie refreshing and the points shows in that movie were so wonderful, if your little one loves dinosaurs maybe they must see this movie and if you are an adult who is yearning to see a different world then ours today then you must watch it too.
So what do you do in your free time and do you feel guilty for spending your time doing something entirely silly or funny just because you feel like it?? Comment below and let me know babies 🙂 Have fun time ahead.
Thanks for reading.
