Life Isn’t about Couches

Here’s an easy one to know, but a hard one to remember: life isn’t about coasting. It isn’t about taking it easy. But it should be about enjoying the ride.

A Simple Metaphor
If you wanted to, you could sit on the couch all day. You could just lay around and do nothing. Man, that would be easy. You’d be hard pressed to find anything easier to do. But it just wouldn’t be that much fun.

At the same time, you could go for a hike. It would require effort. It would require time. It would require sweat. But it would make the day fun, exciting, and memorable.

A Simple Choice
Although there are many more options in life than just sitting on the couch or hiking, that’s the point. There are all kinds of hobbies, projects, volunteer opportunities, and more available to us.

There are times we have worked and are so worn out that we need some couch time. But there is so much time we spend on the couch when we could be enjoying life.

Life isn’t about couches. It’s about relationships and experiences and memories. If we want a bucket full of happiness, we have to forget about easy; we need to focus on the fun.
