Recently I’ve been doing a lot of wishing that my life was a lot simpler. Yesterday as I was talking with my friend at work, I realized what an American I have become. Hurried, stressed out, rushed, and impatient. I hate it. I really can’t tell you how much I hate it. Yet I know that life isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. So I want to learn to live simply, contentedly, patiently, and graciously with the life that I have. At this point I don’t think packing up and moving to Italy where I can have a siesta everyday is feasable.
So the question is, how do I slow down and live simply when I am being pulled in so many different directions (and all good things) all the time? Any thoughts, questions, comments, concerns would be greatly appreciated!
