Let me share to you guys, fraction of one article of my most favorite blogger Bo Sanchez. “Are you Lifeaholic?”
I was a true-blooded, full-pledged workaholic.
I’ve now converted and have become a lifeaholic—if there’s such a thing. I’m now “addicted” to breathe, to love, to quiet, to beauty, to balance, to peace, to joy, to simplicity, and all the wonderful stuff contained in this adventure called life.
A workaholic works long hours.
But a lifeaholic works regular hours.
A workaholic has very shallow friendships, in and out of work.
A lifeaholic treasures his deep friendships as his greatest wealth.
A workaholic works with no defined goals. He just wants to be busy.
But a lifeaholic has defined goals and works towards attaining them. And half of these goals have nothing to do with his work.
A workaholic has no interests outside of work.
A lifeaholic on the other hand has pleasurable interests outside his work.
A workaholic cannot delegate.
A lifeaholic makes delegation his master skill.
A workaholic doesn’t take vacations. And if he is forced to take one, his mind will still be trapped in his office desk no matter where he goes.
A lifeaholic on the other hand takes afternoon naps, annual personal retreats, second honeymoons, regular family picnics, and weekly day-offs with gusto.
A workaholic feels that life is one huge problem.
A lifeaholic feels that life is one mysterious and wonderful gift.
There, very well written. Are you a Workaholic or a Lifeaholic? It’s up to you to choose.
I am a Lifeaholic since college. Yes, because during highschool I am still a ‘patay na bata’, you know puberty stage.
So last night was one of my lifeaholic days/nights.
After work I go straight to the Anniversary Mass of my beloved local group “Chiro” (www.chiro.ph) then me and my girlfriends go straight to Bang Café to have our ‘pabebe bonding’ and catching up.
It was a night full of happiness, LOVE, unending stories, unnecessary stories, pabebe wave birthday greetings, foods and tikiman of smoothies.
As some says, “Distance means so little, when someone means so much.”
We have not done this thing for a long time because of school and work schedules, thus when our schedules meet we make sure that it was always a FANTASTIC bonding.
We enjoyed the night so much that we haven’t notice the time. We ended the night planning our next bonding which we also agreed to be on the 29th and 30th of this month. Wohooo!!
