We are what we do - my thoughts on the matter

I think that if we DO we ARE. If people stop doing they lose their sense of identity. Take for instance those people who retire young because they are looking forward to a life of relaxation. After a while relaxing isn't as pleasurable as it use to be when you were working a demanding, full time job and a few minutes of relaxation was blissful. People are built to work, to be involved, to contribute to society sitting back and watching life pass you is not going to make you happy or help you realise who you are.


  1. I totally agree. I think that's partially why so many people nowadays retire a lot later in life. My dad as a case in point is 67 and refuses to retire, although he could've 20years ago, but says he doesn't know what he'd do with himself if he didn't have a job to go to everyday.Nice one Sarah!

  2. Very well put Sarah Bell, I couldnt agree more.
