Today I will do something completely and utterly pointless… just because.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day have-to’s, need-to’s, and must-do’s. Using time efficiently, making every moment count, making sure everything has a purpose behind it- these are rationales that create our lives in this modern world. Being productive and practical has its place, but so does giving ourselves permission to do something that has absolutely no obvious merit. Admittedly, even the pointless has a point. It frees us from regimental, well-defined and ultimately limiting thinking. It creates a space – if only for a few minutes – where we can be spontaneous, curious, adventurous, creative and fully present in the here and now, fully alive and fully experiencing life. And if anyone asks why you did it, smile and say “Just because.”
