Sorry it has been forever! I have been wanting to write this post, but ironically (irony since this post is about simplicity) have been very busy…TAKS season for me!
When you were younger did you ever picture your life “in the future?” I always pictured my life as June Cleaver. Since I was very young (10 years old) I always wanted to be a stay at home mom who cleaned and cooked all day! Having lived now to 26, my dreams couldn’t be stronger. This world is just too dang crazy and busy! I think kids do too much (other than school) and parents work too much! I think a lot of it stems from the “keeping up with the Jones'” mentality. I know I am guilty of that as well at times. I see friends with bigger houses and I want that as well. When I look at my life, it’s sick how much I’ve been blessed and I pray the Lord keeps my focus on that and not what I don’t have. Better yet, my focus should be blessing others because I’ve been blessed. Bottom line, I’m the richest I can be on this earth. I KNOW Jesus! I hate that the world is so busy. Sometimes I wish there were no phones with internet, TV, or radio. I can’t stand going places with people and sitting there while they are on their phone – definite reason kids do not know how to be social with HUMANS these days. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those things and they are very valuable, but sometimes wish we didn’t have the option to use them so we could focus on relationships and family! I really believe lots of family problems stem from the chaos of life and doing too much! So, are my dreams still to live a life similar to June Cleaver’s? Yes! At least her “working” life! Sit back, relax, and enjoy something that doesn’t run on batteries or need to be plugged in. Simplicity of life – God, family, friends!
Sorry this post was not written well…no organization, so teachers put your teacher hat aside…just my thoughts jumbled together.
