Busy or Simpler Life?

Do you ever feel like your life is so busy that you're always running without any chance of catching your breath? I know we live in a busy culture that always seems to be pulling us in every direction. One thing that I notice when life is busy and go, go, go is that you don't get the opportunity for the simple things. Is your life so busy that you can't stop at a coffee shop, find a comfortable chair, and sip on your favorite drink? Is it so busy that you miss your child's soccer game or music recital? In a go, go, go lifestyle your time dictates what you do. But can you imagine a lifestyle where you dictate what you do with your time? I know we all have a lot of important things that need to get done, but let me remind you that some things can wait. They'll still be there tomorrow screaming at you. Today I challenge you to look at your life and make it simpler. What things do you make a priority that shouldn't be? What things aren't a priority that should be? If you need help, find someone who can bring a clear perspective that will help you decide. Will your life be a busy, busy, busy one, or a simple, simple, simple one? What's so amazing about this is that we personally have a lot to do with it :)
