Planning the Day



If the world were merely seductive that would be easy.  If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem.  But, I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.  This makes it hard to plan the day.

  10. I actually think you can improve the world by enjoying it instead of finding things to complain about! :-)
