What is a Simple Life?

What is a simple life? 

Is it moments of simplicity- sipping ice tea while swinging on a porch swing, reading a book as you are warmed by a flickering fire? Or is it living a life with margin?

Can a simple life even be possible these days? 

There are so many responsibilities, obligations, relationships, and distractions. The computer catches my attention each morning and all throughout the day. My phone continually rings; there are phone messages I need to listen to. A little jingle from my phone alerts me to a new text. I don’t know if I have A.D.D. or if my brain is just on overload from all the distractions in my life.

I long for peace, tranquility, and time, time to have margin in my life so that I am not haunted by a continual to-do list that I can never complete.

I want to have enough time to enjoy the “extras” in life. I desire, even long for a simple life, not even sure what that means, just knowing that I want it.

I am willing to make changes, big changes.

And so I am on a journey, a journey to a simple life.  I invite you to join me.
