Holidays
I have come to the conclusion that a holiday should not be treated as
a day to catch up on work – or sleep, for that matter. The hours seem
to pass much faster during holidays. One hour blurs into the next and
it is night before I notice. Little work is done. To top it all off, I
feel guilty about spending the day indoors, cooped up, doing the same
things I always do. It is a holiday, after all – a day meant for
relaxation and celebration. Yet when I relax, I feel guilty about not
working – such is the peril of setting aside a holiday for work!

I am of the firm belief that holidays should be memorable. They should
be a refreshing break from the humdrum monotony of our everyday lives.
A holiday’s benefit, indeed, is that break from the everyday world
(hints of Marcel?) and a chance to contemplate what matters.
Recharged, then, I should be ready to tackle the challenges of the
workplace with renewed vigor.

I resolve to live the next holiday. I shall use the day to get in
touch with old friends or revive old hobbies. It will be a day to
experiment, to reflect, to celebrate life. It will be a day to
remember.
