I wrote an article today about personal mission statements. I went on to say that knowing what our purpose is in life is very important so that we can keep focused and moving in the right direction.
Living Simple is part of my mission statement. When I concentrate on living a simple life of family, faith and love, my life is on the right track. When I concentrate on making lots of money and finding fame through my writing, I have taken my eye off of the ball.
Good things will come to me if I concentrate on what is truly important. Some religion, and I forget which one right now, talks about the path of least resistance. I have no resistance in my life when I am living by my mission statement. On the other hand, my life gets complicated when I step outside of my path and start stressing over views and money and the future.
The bottom line is that this is all my choice. I can choose to live simply without a care in the world, or I can complicate the hell out of my life and be miserable.
I know which one I’m going to choose today.
On a totally unrelated note, the birds are chirping and it is 43 degrees and drizzling today. I really need a sign of spring soon. J It will be good for my serenity.
