Where would you like to be?

I need a good day out in the Tropics somewhere on this planet. Well to be honest a day wouldn’t quite cut it, but maybe 6 months?

Weirdly I would find nothing more wonderful that just a handful of people on a tropical island, just swimming and playing in the sand all day. Barbecues by sunset and long walks within the trees that stretch across the land. Talking, laughing and just being happy with each other. Both family and close friends.

Is it odd I think that I don’t want a good night out with a bunch of people or some concert etc that people are currently looking forward to ? In the last year I have realised that to me its simple things in life are the ones that matter most.

My friend rang me today and asked if I wanted to go out shopping . I declined. To be honest what did I need to shop for? In all seriousness I have learnt that I don’t need a lot of the things I used to buy and I purchased then just out of habit.

Maybe my sense of money is that it can be here today and gone tomorrow, so why am I buying “things” I don’t need or actually really even want.

Im happy with the odd online clothes purchase as I then leave it in a basket, think about it long and hard before I even press the buy button. It allows me to reconsider do I really need that or want it. Usually 8 times out of 10 I remove items from the shopping cart because I realise that I didn’t really want them. I think we are all guilty of shopping without any rationale and just buying things for the heck of it at times.

Today I purchased something I actually did think about and to me is worth it. A book. No not a kindle one, but an actual hard copy real paper one. Old fashioned I know. But I do love a good flip of a page and bending pages down when I come across sections I love.

Funnily it was via a conversation with Drax that I purchased it after he started telling me some of the aspects of the book. Seriously you will have to watch Second Life book club this week as this author is going to be interesting.

I doubt I will have read the entire book by then, but I will be making a good start later today when I relax on my sofa.

  1. Let me guess Drax’ guest this week: Jonathan Lethem?

    For the time out I have a similar image like yours in mind, just without people. And no island since I need lots of open space and long lonely roads to drive on.

    1. You are correct!!! I bought the book. Arrived today. I’m looking forward to the read.
      Plus less time on pc is always a good thing. I thought I’d wake up in the mornings and spend time reading 😊

      1. LOL, I only knew it from the YT reminder.

        But spending time … reading? Offline? Whoa, don’t you get terrible fomo from such weird behaviour? 😮
