Just because you can, doesn't mean you should

I recently had the (un)pleasant experience of travelling to Glasgow via a Megabus Sleeper Service, and, in my pursuit to find a silver lining in the situation (I had seven and a half hours), I learned a valuable life lesson.

There are things that are possible in life. There are things that are pleasant in life. There are things that are worth doing in life. This wasn’t one of them.

While lying on my side in a double bed with a stranger (who turned out to be quite nice), not much bigger than one of my rabbit’s hutch’s, it struck me:

Just because you can fit around 50 people in ‘beds’, on a coach, doesn’t mean you should.

Lesson? Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

Take, for example the hours in the day. It’s possible to attempt to spend every hour of every day being productive. Does it mean it should be tried and repeated? No, because that’s a sure road to burn out.

Just because you can put your heart and soul into everything you do, doesn’t mean you should.

Just because you can stalk Ryan Gosling all over the world, doesn’t mean you should (sad face).

Not just because you can.

As for my love affair with coaches? We’re on hiatus. For quite some time I'd imagine.
