Free Your Mind Friday

Here we are...it's Friday again.

Question of the week:

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don't like and like so many things we don't do?

Honestly I am not sure there is an easy answer to this question. Daily we have to do many things we don't like to do, but those things are necessary evils of life and living. There are other times we feel obligated to do certain things, attend family events, be nice, etc. We do these things to avoid fights and arguments with family members. I believe we chose to do some things out of boredom as well. We get stuck in a rut and can think of no way to change the patter.

Why do we like things we don't do, I think this comes down to making time for the things we like or enjoy. Fear, I think can keep us in our rut and from trying something new or different.

So the short answer would be fear and comfortableness keep us from trying the things we like and from doing so much we don't really enjoy.
