Simple Enjoyments




“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo da Vinci

I was talking with a friend recently about life and the many different detours and paths it seems to take. The discussion turned to money and we both realised that as we grow older the our bank balance becomes less significant in terms of measuring contentment and happiness.

I know that money is essential to survive in society. We must make enough of our share to live and to be healthy; however, it is the excessive pursuit of more and more monetary gain that sometimes gets in the way of the most simple enjoyments.

The things that do not cost a penny but are waiting there for us all to realise and enjoy, can sometimes be the most rich indulgences that life has to offer.

I am figuring out what works for me; and that seems to lead to the concept of simplicity.

I know that work is important, as is the necessary salary we all must earn to survive…but there is so much more to life and sometimes we get so wrapped up in the rat race that we forget to turn our office chair to the door , smile, breathe, laugh, and live.

In your pursuit for a better life do not forget to play…..Life is about finding balance. Are you finding time to really live life.

“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”
Emma Goldman
