My father loves to forward me interesting quotes or news items he receives from his friends. Today, I received an email from him which I feel compelled to share with all of you, because the message seems right on for the upcoming Labor Day.A question was posed to the Dalai Lama, “What thing about humanity surprises you?” His answer: Man…
Fortunately, for most of us in the sugar world, this message does not apply, right? Because we understand life is short and we only live once, and for this reason we live our lives to the fullest extent, making life sweet for ourselves and for those around us.
In theory, that may be true, but in practice, many of us in the sugar family (sugar daddies, mommies and babies alike) are still practicing what the Dalai Lama finds perplexing: overworking to the detriment of our health, and stressing and worrying about the future. I know I am super guilty of this.
The past few weeks have been tough and busy ones for me. First, I was busy organizing and attending the Seeking Arrangement Party in New York (which received great coverage from NY Post and NY Pix: Watch Part 1; Watch Part 2; and Watch Part 3). Then I had to fly all over the country to defend the Sugar lifestyle on a number of national television shows including The Dr. Drew Show; HNL; and a few other yet to be announced Talk Shows.
So now that it’s Labor Day, I decided it’s time for me to take short long-weekend break. I am writing this blog from my hotel lobby in Maui, Hawaii, and after I am done, I am going to spend the next three days doing something I’ve always wanted to do: learn how to surf.
On this Labor Day, I hope all of you Sugars will take some time off to relax and to self-reflect. For those of us who have worked hard all year long, it’s time to take a break and perhaps to enjoy a little sugar relaxation.
Are you guilty of what the Dalai Lama finds perplexing about humanity?
What have you planned / or did you do this Labor Day?
