I don't know about you, but I want to journey back to the olden days.
I am yearning for a simpler time.
A time when there was no interruption due to the internet or television.
A time when there was no pressure to be like everybody else.
A time when our way of life was plain and simple.
A time when life was slower.
Recently I read this post and to say it shocked me to the core is an understatement. My mind has been going over and over the words this young woman wrote before taking her last breath on earth on 4th of January this year.
Since that day I have purposely found myself back living a simpler life.
I have been breathing and taking in the blue skies and all that nature has to offer.
I find myself sitting here more.
Sitting, gazing and listening. Listening to the peaceful bird songs and the gentle tunes played by the wind chimes.
I am enjoying the simple pleasures.
There is quite a lot of thinking going on about my life.
If I disappear for a while you will know why. It will be because I am actually living this simple life I portray here on this blog.
I have made the decision to spend less time on social media sites. They are stealing my precious time and I don't want that.
I am however reading blogs that feed my soul.
Am I the only one who is thinking about such things?
Maybe I am.
Family time is precious.
I love my family...here my two eldest girls enjoy cuddles with their niece and nephew. They both made the decision not to have children, so this time is really special for them (and me). This is what life is all about. Its not in the material things we collect, its in the memories we collect.
God's beauty and creation is all around...so its time to hop off the busy merry-go-round and start enjoying the simple things.
