Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

We all know how city life is not only exhausting but being a corporate slave is extremely tiresome. We always want an escape from the job, however, the phones have kept us too involved that it is difficult to disconnect from our job. The best way to unwind is to visit a hilly place or a beach and keep your devices to the side. This article will tell you about all the activities that you can actually enjoy while not using your phone.

The first thing you can do is visit a place that has no internet connection. This will give you a good reason to tell your boss why you were not able to respond to your job concerns. This will help you relax from the daily social media posting as it will help you detox from the unhealthy social media world. However, many people complain that not keeping a check on their job triggers their anxiety to huge levels. In such a case, you can always check your phone but ensure that you are not stuck in the constant loop of checking your phone.

Moreover, you can play a huge number of games. Keeping yourself busy is the key to ensuring that you are not stuck in the constant loop of checking your phone. You should tell yourself that you are on a well deserved break and that working all of the time is not your job. Grab your favorite games e.g., cards, ono, scrabble, and monopoly. These board games are an excellent way to keep yourself busy. Also, try interacting with new people. This will help you form better relationships outside the job community and will help you in the longer run. Remember that always working is not your job.
