I am learning how to be lazy. I practice every day. I’m getting quite good at it. Sounds strange, I know. Laziness is not considered an attractive trait. But I don’t have any other choice. Restricted to bed-rest following an operation on my back, laziness is my new friend. If I did not embrace laziness right now I would go crazy thinking about all the things that I cannot do.
My friends send me messages saying I must be so fed up and bored of being stuck in bed for two months. To be honest, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be. Those of you who read Charlie bookzine #2 will know my feelings before the operation. It is actually glorious to take a step out of the rat race.
Maybe sometimes we need to be lazy. It has such negative connotations, but in our fast-paced busy lifestyle, maybe we need to take it easy sometimes. Maybe we should all make friends with our inner lazy-lump and make time for ourselves. Lazy time.
Out of respect for laziness, I have not put too much work into this collection. I ‘borrowed’ quotes from Pinterest. No fancy photo shoot, laziness restricts me to mobile phone selfies. I even used the same photo more than once.
Put your feet up. Give yourself the gift of laziness. Enjoy.
