But things just get so crazy living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
-Sunday Morning, Maroon 5
My life is hectic. Sometimes, it’s downright crazy. When you are always racing to the next appointment or chasing a deadline, you grow an earnest appreciation for all things simple.
Simplicity…..breaking things down to it’s basic compounds. The basics.
-I have a wonderful family
-I have a job
-I have food
-I have a roof over my head
We bring so much drama into our lives. Unnecessary drama. When you stop and think about the basics…you have to recognize that you probably have more than 80% of the world could ever dream of. People are dying to live MY Drama. It’s really not that serious, now is it?
Enjoy your day and your weekend. I mean really enjoy it. Wake up knowing there is no gun to your head,, you can drink your Starbucks coffee and contemplate….”Hmmm, what do I feel like eating today?” and then…go out and get it. You can throw on your $100 sneakers and your designer clothes, start your car engine and just drive. You can drive anywhere you want to. You can roll your window down and shout outside to anyone and say anything. You can choose. You have options.
Today, remember the basics that you are blessed with each and every day. You know, the things you take for granted. Enjoy the simple things. Peace.
