Over complicated-Life-No time:
Most of us run around like chickens with our heads cut off, oblivious to what it feels like to really be alive. Remember back to when you were a child and the most innocent of things could capture your attention for hours. You were living in the moment. You had time to feel, and you did. You noticed things that you pass over each and every day now that you are living the over complicated life. It is time to simplify your life.
When we over fill our lives with meaningless excessive things to be done, or worry about, we rob ourselves of this precious gift of time. When this happens, we lose our memories, our lives.
During a period of a frenzied day or week or month, year or lifetime, what of that do you truly remember? I dare say the part you remember are the moments when you stopped, slowed down, and did something with your kids or your family. That barbeque you attended with your kids that made you stop your frenzy for a few hours. The times you looked into your Grand children’s eyes, and just saw “them” and got to know “them”. These are the moments you remember.
Over complicated-Life-Being remembered:
At the end of your life what do you want to be remembered for? How shiny your car was? Or How clean your house was? How about how many functions you attended in a record year? No, this will not be what you wish to see on your gravestone. If honest, we all want our loved ones to remember that we loved them. Remember that we took the time and gave up the over complicated life for what really mattered… “them”.
Over complicated-Life-Beginning anew:
There is nothing you can do but cry over spilled milk so, don’t do it! Today can mark the day that you begin your assessment of your life to see what is really important, and what is complicating it. Make a list, if lists are your thing. Everyone has chores, jobs, duties. This is not what I am talking about, but if your job is ruining your life, change it. Take steps to make it different or look for another one. We can make what we have better sometimes, just by assessing it and then asking for changes that benefit our lives. You never know, your boss may be looking for someone with that kind of gumption to want to better his environment at work, or cut out some of the stresses to make things more profitable for them and you. Think outside the box. If there is nothing you can do about a job or certain complication in your life, ask a third party to help you evaluate ways to make it more bearable. You may be surprised at what 2 heads come up with over your 1.
I hope this has been helpful. This article was just more of an introduction to issues that effect our lives. Best wishes to you and may your joys be many and your burdens light as you begin to uncomplicated your life!
