Think about it…..each one of us sabotages our serenity at certain points during the day, and I think that is very natural. But what about the long run? What do we do that has long-lasting effects and upsets our own personal banana cart?
Do we work longer hours than necessary? Do we buy things on credit that we really can’t afford? Do we have unhealthy expectations of others? Do we constantly want things instead of concentrating on our needs?
Living Simple is not rocket science. It is understanding priorities and then moving towards those priorities. For me, happiness is a priority, as is love. As long as I concentrate on those two things, my life is very simple. If I deviate and begin searching for things that have nothing to do with true happiness or love, then I am asking for trouble.
Bev and I just got done talking about her taking on another part-time job. She wants to work Saturdays for some invalid woman who needs someone to watch over her. All well and good, and the pay is fine and we could use some extra money.
On the other hand, Saturdays are our days together, the days when we enjoy each other’s company and go do our runabouts and little drives in the country, so we would be giving that up if she took the job.
We haven’t come to a consensus yet, but I can tell you which way I am leaning.
Happiness + Love = Living Simple!
I know, I said I would be doing this blog any longer, but I just had a wild hair and decided to do it….whether it continues or not is anyone’s guess. J Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a simple, loving, happy day.
