With the events of the past week (and the subsequent non-events of the weekend), I’ve come to a realization. Getting back to the basics isn’t so bad.
Basics are the building blocks of life – things like family dinner, ice cream, lemondade, swing sets and imagination. We tend to get caught up in the newest technology, the biggest and best gadget, the ‘it’ diet, workout, etc.
We as Americans push ourselves to be smarter, faster, stronger and better than everyone else. We take less vacation, spend more time in front of the t.v, are less healthy and more obese than many other countries.
So today’s Try It Tuesday is to get back to basics. Read a book. Have a conversation and actually listen. Enjoy silence (even just for a moment.) Embrace the simplicity of a less complicated life. Who knows? You might like it.
