I found below equation in an article about filmmaker Temujin Doran who in his documentary “Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives” explored how many hours, days and years we spend on mundane activities in an average life span.

It inspired me to examine what I do in my day and what I really want to do because it makes me feel alive. Here are two of my favorites:

Breathe – and enjoy my mom’s beloved Spring flower🌷

Smile – especially inspired by Sarina’s💗

Look at a few highlights of what was mentioned in the movie:

2 years of boredom

67 days of heartbreak

14 minutes of pure joy

2 months driving the street in front of your house

7 months having sex

6 days clipping nails

15 months looking for lost items

18 months waiting in line

2 weeks wondering what happens if you die

1 hour realizing you’ve forgotten someone’s name

9 days pretending you know what is being talked about

3 weeks realizing you are wrong

30 years sleeping without opening your eyes

2 days lying

6 weeks waiting for a green light

Amazing isn’t it?

Let me inspire you a bit more, add yoga, it belongs to my personal top ten:

60 minutes of Yoga/day… Tiny Islands included…

I hope you jump on board with me and find a few of your “joy makers” to vibe high. The everyday stuff will happen anyway.😇

And as Annie Dillard said:

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives,”

is an excellent start to examine…

How do we really spend our days?
