I am a very organised person under normal circumstances. I don't feel comfortable not being organised. I like to know where I am and what is expected to happen next. I anticipate a little re-adjustment required for living in Spain where things seem to be more relaxed... and that is a good thing. I get incredibly annoyed when people don't do their jobs right, or don't do what they have promised. I don't mind broken promises or circumstances meaning that jobs cannot be completed... what I really hate is when I am not informed of it, when I continue in a misguided belief that everything is moving along according to plan.
Well lighten up girl!! I hear many of you mutter. The world is just not that well run! And of course you are correct. I do need to lighten up and I do need to stop expecting everyone and everything to run according to a logical plan. And all of that, is at the heart of why I am moving to Spain. Sometimes the truth just hits you between the eyes and you think... yes, that's the truth, and having seen the light... well... it's impossible not to make changes in your life.
Man … sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.
