Simplify….Simplify…..Simplify

“Our life is frittered away by detail… simplify, simplify!”….Thoreau!

 

How true are those words….simplify, simplify!

We are all so busy; running to and fro like chickens with our heads cut off, and for what purpose?  To make more money? To gain more possessions? To see more sites and play more games and kill more time?

How about taking a step back, taking a deep breath, and just enjoying life without DOING anything?

How many people sit on their porches at night and listen to the birds chirp and watch the lightning bugs flitter about? How many people take the time to play catch with their kids or go for a walk with a loved one?

If you whittle it all down to priorities, your activities might be a bit different. Our number one purpose on this planet is to love.  Now, do your actions equate to love being the number one priority?  If not you might want to re-think your life.

  1. It’s true Bill, our lives are so busy rushing around and doing pointless things like watching TV that we sometimes forget the simple pleasures in life such as going for a walk with a loved one, or sitting outside at night and looking up at the stars, etc. I am glad to not be obsessed with TV shows as I was a year ago. I just spent the last 20 minutes meditating instead of watching TV and it was bliss!

    • Hey Mel, thanks for the visit. 20 minutes meditating….now that is cool! I’m about to take a break for yoga and I’m looking forward to the 20 minute break. Have a great day!
