Your perfect day?

Written on Monday, January 28th, 2008 at 4:55 pm by Christiane

What would be your perfect day? Who would be in it? What would you do? What makes a day the “perfect day”?

For me, right now, a perfect day would be one, where I don’t have to think about what I “must do next”. I long for a day off – but I know this is only temporary, since I feel a little exhausted.

Normally, I would describe my perfect day differently: I would describe it as a nice, sunny and warm day. I’m spending the day with people I love to be around; and I would get to know something new; the last point being the most important part of the perfect day. I love to have new experiences in my life; these may be traveling to foreign countries, taking courses or visit a museum where I haven’t been before.

I’m unhappy if I have to spend my days with routine jobs, in routine meetings, or with routine chores at home.

Why did I ask the questions about your perfect day? Because I believe, it’s important to think once in a while about the perfect day. It tells you where you are standing right now in life, what’s missing and what you might want to change or add, if possible.

One of my favorite quotations:
Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. (Benjamin Disraeli)

    Hi Christiane,
    I agree with this quotation as well. For me, the perfect day is when I have accomplished useful things (for me or for the others), learned new things and finally shared moments with people.

      Good for you that you know so well what makes your day perfect. It makes it probably easier to design days according to your needs and wishes. Have many more “perfect” days!

    Travelling is definitely a very useful leisure occupation, and I travelled a lot, although today I prefer to be among good friends.

    After years of intensive business travelling, I came to the conclusion that everywhere is the same.

    Regards,
    Thank you

      I think it is different whether you travel for business or because of curiosity, and fun exploring new countries. I don’t like business travel because all hotels and restaurants, conferences and airports seem to be the same. However, I love traveling when it means exploring. We rent a car, or use public transportation and then take it one village, one beach, one mountain at a time – that’s for me the perfect vacation.
