Everyday Inspiration

Day 4: A story in a single image

I should do more…

I should exercise more: I have burst of activity on my Wii Fit once a month. I have set up a 30 minute programme that consists of a combination of yoga and aerobic exercises.

I should leave work on time: I find it difficult to leave the office at five o’clock. There is so much work to do. I find it easier to work when everybody has gone home and the office is quieter.

I should call my siblings more often: well this partly because they do not answer my calls and it can get disheartening after a while. However I should try harder.

I should go to Church more: perhaps then I would stop complaining about things

I should volunteer more: I used to do something every week but it got tiring. However among the fatigue it did feel good to help people.

I should cycle more: I bought a lovely bike in the summer which stays locked up in my garage. It needs to see the light of day.

But for now I am just going to stand here and enjoy this moment.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
