From your stuff, to your mind, to your time, to your relationships we all could use some better management skills. Most of us are slaves to stuff. We spend almost no time in educating our minds. We have too little time for the activities we love, and the ones we love most we often treat the worst.
We find ourselves empty, tired, lonely, stressed and longing for something more.
My husband and I found ourselves in this trap. Ours eyes were not opened until I lost my career in 2011. Only then did we become aware of the stress we were carrying and the sources thereof. Our lives were passing by as we ran like rats in a wheel to keep up the pace to nowhere. Principles I had known all my life but never lived started to surface. Thoughts about priorities, service to others, the frailty of life, as well as relationships, and dreams came to focus. We began to simplify our lives.
