A Fragmented Life

Can you be happy living a fragmented life? Before you answer I should clarify what I mean by fragmented.

Life can be so routine it can be broken down into fragments. There is the home life which encompasses husband or wife, father or mother, and the parent.

There is the work element. You are known by your job. Your career. Your attention is demanded. Your focus is divided from the other aspects of your life. It is fragmented from the rest.

Hopefully, you have a positive spiritual area in your life. It too can become fragmented. Your church attendance and activities help define who you are and whose you are.

There are other parts and even the ones mentioned can be intertwined. However, by asking the question, can you be happy living a fragmented life, I am asking do you live your life in phases?

For instance, Saturday’s are the focus on Sundays coming activities while Sunday’s activities usher in the dread and anticipated work week. It is about midweek when you begin looking desperately for the weekend. Friday evening comes and the cycle begins again!

What has got to happen to bring happiness to routine?

Until next time,
