sometimes, we have to enjoy ourselves once in awhile

This is life... We usually strive to survive or to excel in everything we do. But we shouldn't forget to enjoy once in awhile.that's because we sometime need to breakaway from the normal things that we are doing. This will also makes us more inspired to do more things ahead because that good mood is there. Also we should let ourselves have a bonding moment with other people. That's for making our circle of friends bigger and also sharing ideas with each other. I have a friend who is a mother of 3 and also a loving wife. She usually does household chores after work and cooks good food , too. She was from a different call center company befpre and also she had a supervisory experience in handling a team before. One time, she asked what do I do to breakaway from the norm. Do I hang out? Do I shop? Do I go out somewhere serene? I answered briefly, "I drink in pubs and that's fine for me." We drank at a nearby establishment and sank videoke until our lungs burst out. That was definitely a weekend stress reliever :) This rest day, I am looking forward for.makng the most of my phone and internet connection. LOLZ. That's somewhat a stress-buster for.me: listening to music while browsing. That's something thata I don't do everyday as I am too busy being out in the field work after my call center shift. Well, we all do our own approach in how to enjoy life more. So enjoy life!!

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Yes u are absolutely right, no doubt we should always love the work we do and should be hardworking in nature but that does not mean we should not take out time to enjoy in life otherwise there would be no justification to our role on this earth. Life is short unpredictable and uncertain so we have to live it to the fullest. What say?

I'm with you. As in our early school days, our teacher taught us that all work and no play makes one a dull boy. We work for a living but our bodies need the time for leisure and exercises.

I also felt all the pressure when I was working in a call center company three years ago. I had very little sleep during those times and it really exhausted me so much when I had to wake up at night to go to work. But what I loved the most in my past job was that it was able to give me fun times with my co-workers. It had been a habit of us to go to malls right after shift and unwind for a while.

Yes, we have to enjoy once in a while, to get away from stress. For me, one that i enjoy most is window shopping when i have extra money , and fitting all those blouses and dresses and be able to buy a new one. But when i don't have money, i will buy boiled peanuts, go home and eat it, while i surf the net, do FB and mylot all at the same time. One need not money in order to enjoy and be happy. One just have to simplify so even simple things can make her happy already.

It is far too easy to get locked into a rut. If we follow the same routine over and over again, we become bored and listless. Getting out and taking a break from it all is so essential to the balance of life. It is sad and sorrowful to look back and see the things we did not do because we did not take the time.

Hi resy! I hope you have a great day! There are times when we are really busy with our work and we forget to have some time to relax. That is happening to me most of the time. Since I have to work with my permanent job and trying my best to find a good source of additional income online, most of the time, I forget to enjoy my life. So maybe I have to reconsider my activities. Need to take a break also. Thank you for the reminder. Have a great day!
