There is no reason why we can't all aim for and achieve this type of lifestyle and mindset.
Everything is so rush, rush nowadays - I hate it. Everyone has somewhere to be, something to do, people to see, jobs to be done, CRAP to do........ and on and on.
SLOW DOWN PEOPLE!!!!!!
Truly think about your daily life.....is there anything that can't wait for a while, for a day, for a week?
Take time to sit and JUST breathe and relax.
Take time to listen to the children playing and laughing in the neighborhood.
Take time to sit and JUST LISTEN to nature. Close your eyes and listen.
Take time to look at each flower and appreciate how every single flower is somehow different.
Take time to read a good book.
Take time to listen....truly listen to someone else.
Take time to love better.
Take time to pray for ALL your blessings - there are many, whether you realize it or not.
Take time to be a better friend.
Take time to actually SAVOR your food.
Take time to smell the roses, as the old saying goes.
Take time to be thankful for memories.
Take time to cherish the lessons and skills you have learned in this life
Take time to be thankful you have ENOUGH.
I could go on and on. But the greatest 'simple' thing we can do................
TAKE TIME TO BE YOU - THE REAL YOU - NOT THE YOU THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE EXPECTS. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF!!!!!! (This is probably the hardest single thing for most of us to do.)
LIVE LIFE FOR TODAY! Appreciate today. Be thankful you woke up today. TODAY IS A GIFT - EVERYDAY IS A GIFT.
Slow down, simplify your hectic days, and ENJOY!
LEARN to LIVE each and every day slower and simpler.
God bless you all.
