Although you want to live in the moment and be alert all the time, the danger of falling back asleep is always there. Sleeping, while fully awake, where time passes by quickly and life flows away unnoticed. Last night I woke up again in a shock. The world upside down. I could not sleep!
That was where I woke up again and loads of books flashed through my mind from Monks Who Sell There Ferrari till Seven (or more) Habits of Highly Effective People, and all those motivational and happiness gurus in between. If you follow all their advise and lists, you probably have no time for living. I brought it down to a one word credo Awake4Life, which I say when I wake up in the morning – to really wake up from mediocracy and live the life what I really want to live.
It will be a great trip!
