The great thing about choosing a simple life is that it really can be simple. I had a very long to-do list yesterday. I started off the day with a bang but as the day wore on, I fizzled. I kept thinking about all those things I wanted to get done and found it hard to sit and rest. My body, however; reminded me that it, that I needed rest.
I took the bandanna that had been keeping my hair out of the food I was preparing and tossed it onto the table. It landed on a book and I knew I had to make the simple and wise choice to rest and relax. An early evening was called and I sat for hours in a comfy chair reading my book and being inspired by the words.
The simple life isn’t always easy. Sometimes it’s downright hard, but realizing that in order to do the hard stuff, the body needs rest – that’s rather simple.
What simple choices are you making to further your simple life these days?
