I have always enjoyed the simple things in life. I don't really buy into the philosophy of "bigger is better". It seems that everywhere you look these days, though, the common thread is expansion. Somewhere along the road to progress in this world, people have decided that more of anything is an improvement. But I , for one, believe that this is certainly a matter of opinion!
Call me "old fashioned" but I really don't enjoy a lot of the things which modern society deems to be necessities. For example, I saw a news story recently where random people in metropolitan areas were asked what types of "things" they regularly carry with them, either in a purse or a backpack etc. The results showed that most women carried with them(and said they couldn't live without) their daytime planner. Well....I have as busy of a schedule as the next gal, with three young children(one in diapers) and all of the extra curricular activities which go along with running a large household. But if I am ever "lost" and unable to function ,except with the use of a glorified "NOTEPAD"...someone just shoot me! Okay.... maybe not that, since my kids would miss me....but REALLY PEOPLE! Use Common SENSE. If you have soooo many things to do each-and-every-day of the week, that you have to have a book full of lists to remember it all....Why not consider downsizing your schedule???? If the reason for such a busy schedule in life is a career.... make some sacrifices and cut back so that you can afford the time to" stop and smell the roses". If for no other reason than ...YOU"LL LIVE LONGER!! Less stress.
If you are a parent..... the kids will survive with one less after school sports program or lesson. And you'll be able to give them much MUCH more of your time, which is really all they want and need. And...just think of all that you can buy with the money you'll have saved because you didn't need to buy a planner. (Today's scripture really made me laugh and it is so true!)
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
A beautiful woman who rejects good sense
is like a gold ring in a pig's snout.
