A journalist once asked, “Mr. Gandhi, you have been working fifteen hours a day for fifty years. Don’t you think you should take a vacation?”
Mahatma Gandhi smiled and replied, “I am always on vacation.”
“If your work feels like a sacrifice, you should question everything around you, but if it feels like indulgence then dive in and give it all you have. When you have indulgence, you will always feel like you are on vacation.”
Create a life that you live happily, fulfilling, balanced, and inherently enjoyable so that you don’t have to seek any escape from it.
When you wake up every morning for creating experiences, relationships, work and pleasure is all knit together so well that fosters commitment, joy and purpose.
This story is a reminder to seek fulfillment in the everyday moments and to create a lifestyle that doesn’t make you feel like you are burdened to do your duty and you don’t need any vacation to escape from it to find happiness.
