"The call to simplicity and freedom is a reminder that our worth comes not from the amount of involvements, achievements, or possessions, but from the depth and care which we bring to each moment, place, and person in our lives".
-Richard A. Bower
In "the real world", people have the tendency to think of the future and goals. Now, don't get me wrong, goals are good, but not when they are solely about getting ahead, making more money, getting the next promotion, or the fanciest new car.
Or at the expense of the people, moments, and memories in our lives.
There is nothing wrong with wanting "stuff". The problem becomes when "stuff" rules our lives and people let the things that really matters, our relationships, the meaning we seek, and the memories that last, fall on the way side.
My suggestion? Take the time this weekend to focus on what's important. Count your blessings on what really matters: your relationships that make this journey amazing, the moments that you are thankful for living, and the places that take your breathe away.
Happy Friday my friends!
