Sunday, February 14, 2016¶
Yesterday night I returned home after two weeks in Eupen. Two weeks with Iiris and without Ly and Mari. Two weeks with my parents who are getting old. Two weeks in the town where I was born and have been living for 30 years. And two weeks in the town with the highest Lino activity in the world. Both my mail inbox and my to-do list are overflowing; Don’t panic. I am doing my best –and not more!
But what the best thing to do when your to-do list is overflowing? Especially on Sunday mornings it can be something absolutely irrational. That’s what I did this morning. I started to explore and discover reddit.com. I had an account there for some time, but never actively used it.
The problem with reddit is that it makes my to-do list longer, not shorter. Yesterday during the flight I read The Why You Are Here Café by John Strelecky. Nice little story. An interesting detail is how I got this book: Roger gave me the advice to read it at the end of our second meeting. And two days later, Alexa passed by and gave it to me, as a gift from Roger. Yes, Roger, this book confirms what I believe: I am here because God wants me to do something. The meaning of life is to do what God wants me to do. And of course the question then is how to find out what it is he wants us to do. My answer to that question is “Choose those activities which give you joy, real and long-term joy”. But that’s philosophy…
