So, the second blog.
We’ve been juggling and passing around all the ideas of this and that and everything is very interesting. To us. But when you really think about it, what is it that people are interested to hear?
We could write day and night about stories we’ve heard, stories we’ve told, and stories we’re in. But is that what interests people? Perhaps when confronted face to face and the energy shared through non-digital communication is present, stories are interesting. If the energy between the two people feels comfortable, it doesn’t matter what you say. If it’s comforting to listen to the other person, that’s all that counts.
At least that’s what we think. Comfort always comes first. Doesn’t matter if it’s food, clothing, posture, friendship or lifestyle. Comfort comes first. But don’t be fooled. Comfort is a two sided sword. Get too comfortable and you become jelly and rot, get too uncomfortable and you become a sour stress ball. Where’s the balance?
We figured it’s like a flubby ball that feels just right. Or like a piece of fruit that feels, smells and looks just right. You can feel it. You’re not rotting on the couch like a mouldy mango and you’re not as sour as a super lemon. Comfort in life, especially when working, means to do the right thing at the right time and not waste your energy in fighting the wrong fight. Miyamoto Musashi, the greatest of all the Samurai said, “Do only what’s necessary”.
Rest when you need to rest, work when you need to work, and always, no matter what you do, enjoy whatever it is that you are doing. Feel the comfort and smell the comfort. You will definitely know your on the right track when you can taste the comfort.
But in a blog we are not in person. We must learn to write something you find interesting, and the best way we figured, is that you just tell us what you want to hear? With the odd chance we might pick a comment and actually write about it, and we’d be delighted to do so. But more often than not we’ll write about what we want to say, because we love to hear our own voice.
