I was reminded today of how complicated and busy life can become, and how so often we bury ourselves within daily living, forgetting that we ourselves need time to just ‘be’.
I wrote this blog entry last year but felt I needed to re post if only for my sake and to jog me into taking my own advice…!
Simplicity and Freedom… how many of us have these in our lives?
All it takes is a walk in the rain, watching the birds fly high in the sky or the clouds rolling by! Take a drive in the countryside or sit in a quiet place and listen to the wind rustle in the trees. Go turn off the television, your i-pad, mobile phone and your games! Stop buying those take-away and instead spend some time cooking tea with your partner and children! Sit together at night time and play a board game or at the weekend take a kite to the park.
Yes in our busy and often complicated life, just take a minute or two to take a breather so go sit outside, close your eyes and dream a little!
Hey, how much busyness and stress do we make for ourselves?
Yes just take a minute or two and think your day over – do you have time to relax or, is every minute taken up doing…. working… stressing…?
I challenge you all to listen to the call to Simplicity and Freedom as, in reality, it is a reminder of your worth – you are worth choosing to make a choice to take a chance to change by allowing yourself some, ‘you’ time!
Are you ready to be Challenged…?
If so say YES to taking up my Challenge of Simplicity and Freedom
Your Worth is NOT measured by the time spent being busy or your amount of involvement in things.
Nor is it measured by your achievements, money and possessions.
Nor does it come from just mindlessly walking through life… it is far, far more than that!
Your worth comes from within…
It is the depth of knowing who you truly are without it being buried by the busyness of life.
It is recognizing that you are more than material things.
It is the simple things of life and the love, kindness and care which you bring to each precious moment where ever you are, whom ever you meet and whatever you do!
But too often we become too busy and lose or forget the ‘who’ we really are inside… instead we begin to measure our worth by our amount of involvement in things and our achievements, money and possessions!
So, why not choose to take my Challenge of Simplicity and Freedom from busyness and go rediscover your inner worth!
