Pepper led a life a leisure.  If you ask me, I’d say she slept a good part of her day away, but that was okay because it was what she wanted to do.  She knew how to balance playing with resting, barking with wagging and waiting with eating (although we had to help her a bit with the last one!).

Interestingly, the original meaning of leisure comes from licere (Latin)—to be permitted.  Hmmm, does this mean one needs permission to relax or play?  Not if you are ageless.  When you’re ageless, leisure comes easily to you.  You know how to find the perfect balance of work and play, to dwell in the freedom of simplicity, and to surround yourself with the people and places that give you pleasure.  Leisure is about allowing yourself to do things—or nothing at all—not because you have to, but because you want to.  So, how do you permit leisure in your day?
