Daddy has just driven off to his hair salon for another days work and Mr. Midnight and Sir Winston watch his car disappear around the bend.
Well apparently he hasn´t got much work on this week. He informed me that it´s a little slack at the moment and probably has something to do with the fact that “everybody” is either on holiday or they are “all” ill again.
He said that he cannot do much about the situation but he feels “the salon” occasionally needs “a breather” in which to recharge the batteries.
That must be why he´s feeling rather cheerful and chipper at the moment.
Christian humans have just had their Easter holidays and now, a week later, they´ve also got their May bank holiday to look forward too. It is indeed, a good time for humans to take off and to look for new pastures green.
The holiday season must be the explanation for daddy´s light workload at the moment.
Humans do believe in “rest and play” but most of the poor darlings can´t seem to live by a rest and play philosophy.
I think they have to attend to their duties. You know, like trying to keep their families in order, maintaining and updating their electronic gadgetry, taking care that they have enough social appointments and trying to “soak-up” as much superficial activity as possible.
Ah yes, Burnout Syndrome. Most “modern” humans conveniently believe that burnout syndrome occurs because of bad working conditions. The workplace does have a contributing factor towards Burnout, but is not the only reason for the illness.
If stress levels at home or in ones spare time are not reduced, “the body” will not be able to function properly at the workplace. We cats are lucky – we don´t believe in working. 🙂
We just eat, rest and play. Humans have to go to work in which to sustain their lifestyles and they seem to place far too much emphasis upon avoiding quality rest and play.
They do “play about” a lot but not necessarily in the right areas. You also mentioned that they were not properly switched on or tuned in to life but they are definitely switched on to their mobile devices. I think it looks rather funny when they walk down the road not looking where they are going.
Quality rest and play appears difficult to find.
Actually, contrary to human belief, illnesses are in fact good for the body. Illnesses show signs of negative disposition within the body. If being truly “switched-on”, we would be thankful that our body is sending us a message because if we act accordingly, we can remedy many illnesses ourselves.
What, you mean one doesn´t need to swallow any chemicals and things? Humans love their pills, medicines and whatever. They´d feel lost without them. Obviously, if one has a major illness such methods of combating disease will be necessary, but if observing the little messages our body emits by taking ones health seriously , one could stamp out many illnesses before the “warning signs of the body” become more intense.
Some illnesses remain silent and one may not be aware of them but a trained, positive thinking “mental mind” can also help eliminate many tragic illnesses. One doesn´t necessarily have to wait until an illness turns nasty.
For example, humans should eat better products (and with proper eating habits), drink enough fluids, avoid any sort of drug as much as possible (cigarettes, alcohol, etc.), acquire proper sleeping habits, adopt a general positive frame of mind, move around on their own two feet more often and take more time-out for themselves (without modern gadgetry glued to their ears).
For the majority of “modern” humans, such notions will appear very boring. Most like to consume as cheap as possible and require their drugs and superficial entertainment to get through the day. Any thoughts about spending time with “oneself” will be quickly banished from the mind for fear of discovering too many truths or because of plain old boredom.
Anyway, I feel a hole appearing in my stomach and I would like to fill it. Are you going to join me for “elevenses” Mr. Midnight?
