I know the video and the song are mainly about marriage, but that’s not what I want to blog about here. A simple life may be too much to ask for these days. The world has gotten more and more fast-paced. All the electronic gadgets that are supposed to make life simpler and easier really make it more complicated than anything else. Because we’re available all the time on our cell phones, iPads, laptops, etc., it’s become more and more difficult to separate our work time from our family time and both of those from our time alone – thus leading to complication and stress.
I’m not the type of person who wants a lot of “stuff.” I don’t need a big group of friends or a high-profile career. I don’t want a huge house or an expensive car or a lot of neat gadgets. I still don’t even have a microwave oven. I don’t get bored easily, so I don’t constantly need to be entertained with the latest fads or TV shows.
Books, writing, a good job, a place to live, and waking up in the morning with enough to eat are good enough to satisfy me. All that “extra” stuff is nice, but I don’t want it or find it necessary.
