Is there too much of a good thing?

I just spent a lovely weekend with my family, aunts, uncles and cousins in celebration of my mum’s 60th birthday.

It was all very simple – just eating, chatting and playing games together – but, like a lot of things in life, it’s simple that’s so enjoyable.

We had such a wonderful time it made me think; we should do that more often!

But then that got me pondering; are special occasions so memorable because of the occasion (i.e. the people and the place), or because of the specialness of the timing? (i.e. they don’t happen often)

Christmas Day is lovely, especially with kids; the food, family, presents.

But would it be so lovely if it were every week?!

(aside from the pain to the bank balance of course!)

Then, to flip it on it’s head; are there things we strive to do more of, or get more of, that would actually be ruined by an increase in quantity?

I love travelling, but if we travelled all the time, would it lose its sheen?

I guess there’s some depth to “too much of a good thing”.

What plans and goals are you working towards that you might be better off not achieving?!

Just a little food for thought!
