Give time a break!!

Yesterday, I started my bike, put on the helmet n realised that I had left my headset at home...so I was going to ride to banjara hills without music for company...if not for my swollen knee n inability to kick the bike again I would have gone up home n brought it...

So when im riding along grudgingly, i thought....

I go to yoga for peace n i plan my day while i do my suryanamaskaras....
I read the newspaper and have breakfast...!!
I listen to music while I bathe...
I watch TV/read a magazine while I have lunch...
I surf facebook while I talk to my friends on the phone...
I play FRIENDS in the background so I can listen to it while I work on the computer...
I always either listen to music or talk on my phone when I have to take a longish walk to someplace or I'm shopping alone....


I never just lie around on the swing in my house...
I never stare out of the window in my room...
I don't just sit on the terrace n look at traffic go by on the street...
I don't simply listen to music...
I don't go out with friends just to talk..there's breakfast or lunch or movie or play....


I wonder.... Have i become so obsessed with making the most of every minute that I'm now incapable of making the little moments count???

I sometimes feel im wasting time if im by myself. Man! If i sit idle for 20 minutes, I start fidgeting, get onto the net or watch tv. I suppose I'm afraid that when I have "space" between my busy-ness, I will start to ask myself the tough questions. Like "Dude, is this what you thought your life will boil down to?" "Are you living your passion?" "What is your passion by the way?" And I am afraid of the answers. I'm asking these questions right now, but I've kept them on hold to be answered. Way behind in my mind, to be answered when I truly have free time. And the funny part is, I always always escape from that free time. I escape into busy-ness. I wish someone would tie me down and say "dudette! get real!" :-) super post by the way :D
