Most of the time I notice that people, all people, make life harder than it should be. Lets look at the basics. Basically, you are born and need to eat, breathe, drink, and sleep. That is it… Honestly at the basics that is all you need to do until you die, hopefully at the ripe old age of 75-100. Now, that is a lot of mundane and to balance this out with excitement people start playing and making friends. Then we grow up a little and we go to school and realize how fun learning can be… Knowledge is exciting. After school (Sometimes 30 years of it) we start working. This is where we as a human race start failing. Some realize that work = power and control and they run with it no matter who they hurt. Some realize that work = money and “things” and they run with it and have all the best, greatest and newest “things” out there. Some realize that work = work and they quite and sit around all day. Some realize that work = food, water and shelter and they do what they need to do. The problem is that we make life to hard and forget that we can grab the essentials and then use all of our free time to do what we love with the people we love. Why is that so hard these days? Life is too fast. Why waste it on working too much and on “things” that are not essential and that won’t really make you as happy as hobbies, travel and friends? I hope in the decades to come out of my life I have more happy memories of excitement, friends and family and I will give up money any day to smile more often, travel more, and play.
Its back to the basics for me.
