An old Italian expression, il dolce far niente means “the sweetness of doing nothing” a delicious idleness so to speak.
Leave it to the Italians to have something perfect for our 52 weeks of happy, eh?
I think part of being happy is going after your dreams and working hard to get what you want, whatever that may be. But we all need to stop every once in a while to re-charge our batteries, no matter who we are.
I often have trouble with this. I’ll work and work and work until my body and mind simply shuts down and I have no other option than to do nothing. This happened just this past week after I completed a couple of extra projects I had going. Complete burnout I tell ya!
Yes I know, it’s a problem. So I write these 52 weeks of happy posts for me just as much as I do for you.
And so I’m making a pledge to take a day, at least once a week, to do absolutely, 100% laying around the house in my PJs watching TV or reading whatever good book I’m into, nothing all day.
It has to be done.
What do you think, want to join me? A happier life awaits…
Thanks for stopping by!
