Summers used to be walking on a beach, eating popsicles on the front porch, cookouts and apple pie. Saying hi to a neighbor or having a beer with a friend. Somewhere all that changed and now were on the treadmill and it seems to be endless . . .
What happened? Some would say we grew up, but I would say more takes more away from us. Dreams we think . . . that’s what we’re working for, but is it? Retirement? How can you slow down, if you never have? Ever tried to do with less?
One less car, one less trip to the market, one less pair of shoes . . . What for?
Want more time, cut something else . . . It is all relevant to what you feel is important. And the truth, balance makes us the happiest. Balance gives us the time to walk barefoot on a beach or to play ball with our kids or to just be.
Peace and tranquility is what we seek, it’s what need . . .
