Beware the barrenness of a busy life ~ Socrates
A few weeks ago I began working on a new website, Healthy Food Matters. I started it because I believe that it does matter. Where our food is sourced from, how animals are treated, what chemicals are added, if it has been genetically modified.....it all matters.
Often when I start something new, I lose myself in it. I can become quite obsessive at times. The point is that I forgot. I forgot how to just be. I forgot how to relax. I forgot how beautiful the beach is as the sun rises. I forgot to sit outside and enjoy the late evening sounds of summer. I forgot how to have a meaningful conversation with my wife. I forgot to call my relatives. I forgot, I forgot, I forgot.
There is nothing wrong with working hard until we forget who we truly are and what really matters.
Courtney's article here, on Be More With Less, reminded me of who I am and what is important to me. I recommend that you read it. Whether you read Courtney's article or not, I hope that I have reminded you to take a moment and remember who YOU are and what really matters.
