waiting for a better offer

waiting for a better offer:
“You can always wait” is a quote of a friend of mine, another friend is most times waiting for a better offer. I recently started to ask myself if waiting can be relaxing. In the case of wait around for a better offer, mate, situation, life – you have to constantly compare new incoming data with an old fixed data you declared as the fixed/ starting point to yourself. These ongoing data-stream builds up tension in your system(brain) which might generate what we in short call stress.
Why do we act like this? (most of us, including me sometimes)
Many times these illusionary calculations are missing some important points. Sure, the TV, Camera, Computer, Gadget will be less expensive in a few months but how much weight do we give the missed joy, experiences, life quality? Can we rewind our lifetime after waiting for Mrs or Mr Right for ages?
Wait less, become stressless…

xmas harvest time

I recently got an email response from a friend of mine which made me think about various things… Thanks Tom!

thanks for the link Chris!!!
yeah, I am really noticing this year, how the “season” is designed to push people too hard.  everyone has all these expectations and I think in many people’s heads it’s “harvest time” and they have to do everything right now…
I’m this way too, it’s funny that I will put off seeing a loved one to go to a store and buy that same person a present.  the priorities are all wrong!!
Looking forward to a surprise…
-Tom
