What is This Race

The Simple Life:  Simply living is about the conscious pursuit of happiness and finding true fulfillment in life.

We live in a world today that is full of THINGS, full of the fast pace of life.
We have at our convenience the FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS.....which delivers our food right to our car within minutes.  Everywhere we turn, there are drive Thru's that are backed up with cars.  People wanting instant service.  Oh, and what if someone in front of you has a big order.  The thought of our time being wasted because someone took the liberty to place a large order can sometimes throw us into a teasy.

I am almost certain that in the earlier years of raising our daughters, that we too were guilty of engaging in the rush of life.  I look around me now and what I see are kids that do not know any other way of life.  They are like little balls being bounced from one place to another. 

I wonder, what is the race that we are all trying to win?  Year by year the complexities of our lives grow more and more bewildering.  We demand so much out of life.  The focus is on financial gain in order to continue living the fast pace of life.  Wanting everything, demanding material things that we think we bring us happiness.

What we really need to be seeking is PEACE and COMFORT in the joyful simplicities of life.  We need to allow our kids the time to discover who they are and to let them have time to be a child.  They need this time to be creative.  Instead, we depend upon movies, and electronic games to be creative for them. 

Simple life is just that.....SIMPLE.  It does not mean that you have to give up living....   What it does mean is that we allow ourselves the time to enjoy a sunset with our children, or we let them run in the rain.  We engage in the simple wonders of life. 


Stop....take time today to do something simple for those you love
