Some people are sticklers for time.
Others of us prefer to chill.
If you find you’re never in a hurry,
you just may be living life in the -ish.
You see, when my friends and I make plans
to meet for a meal or a drink,
and we are coordinating the meetup we say,
“How about 11:00ish?”
It may mean 10:55, 11:05, 11:15,
11:30 or even 11:45.
It’s not about the arrival time
but about how we spend the time – together.
If someone runs “late”, it’s not a concern.
We just order a drink and bask in our surroundings.
And when they arrive, we are happy
and pick up from where we left off previously.
Living life in the -ish is a great place to be
the stress is low, the joy is high.
Just try it once, and you might like
living life in the -ish.
