Okay, time is up! I spend, on average, seven hours out of twenty-four sleeping, so out of the other seventeen I spend seventeen hours doing what I consider enjoyable activities.
Now how about you? If you work full-time, then we will hope that you enjoy your work; otherwise, that’s one big chunk of your day doing something you do not enjoy.
How much time do you spend with your family and loved ones?
How much time do you spend on a hobby or an interest of yours?
How much time do you spend exercising and taking care of your health?
How much time do you spend just relaxing and doing nothing?
Do you see where this is going?
Yes, this writer spends 17/17 each day doing things I enjoy. I am either spending time with Bev or I am writing, both of which are enjoyable passions of mine. Now compare that to the old days when I felt I needed to work more and more hours to pay for more and more possessions. I was working 8-12 hours per day out of the seventeen….add travel time, and I had very little time to enjoy life.
Do you get the point?
Living Simple is all about figuring out your priorities and then changing your life accordingly.
And here is something many will not want to hear: our lives are only complicated if we choose to make them complicated.
