Work, Learn, Provide or Eat, Pray, Love?

Sometimes I want this new great job. Sometimes I want to quit and run away.

Looking back, I guess I’ve always had this “dilemma”. Work hard and learn and provide. Or quit and run off and be bad. I’ve always chosen the work hard path. But the other path also looks appealing at times.

I’ve been listening to Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love” this past week. I’m only about half way so far, but I hear her expressing a lot of these same things. Maybe it’s a universal dilemma we all face.

Of course I don’t know how to relax much, let alone do nothing. And I don’t really know how to be bad, let alone want to be very much. So does it mean I want more of a balance? Or something very different?
