Live the Simple Life

Do you remember when you were a kid how life seemed so simple? You would wake up to eat, get dressed and go play outside with the neighbor kids when you were not in school.  Your parents would call you in for lunch and then you would go back out and play until dinner time.  Relationships were built on true friendships and getting to know a person.  Today we are much more advanced and we have a greater reach of friends and followers according to our facebook and twitter accounts. There are many people I speak to daily that say they just do not do the social media and opt to really get to know someone instead of trying to compete in the world of electronics and who is having what crisis and drama that day.  Too much of one thing is not good, we have entirely too much social media time for ourselves and our kids.

Let’s get back to the simple things in life, when we can wake up each morning and sit at the kitchen table and read a book, talk with our significant other, or read with our kids without feeling like we have to check in with the world first.

When you go to work and have your lunch break, take a brown bag and go outside in our beautiful Florida weather and eat your lunch outside then enjoy a walk with a coworker or by yourself.

Call or write a snail mail to a friend to let them know how much you appreciate them instead of sending them a quick text or email.

We have so much beauty around us, let’s take time to enjoy God’s creation each and every day.
