Ahhh yes the joys of living a simple life. Not sitting in traffic for a hour to get to work, not having to do it again in the evening, spending time with people you enjoy, spending time doing the things you enjoy.
That’s what last weekend and the first long weekend of the “Summer” season was all about. If you didn’t know, over the course over Labour weekend, that little stretch of road between Warkworth and Omaha is an absolute joke. A tent pitched on the sand sounded like a bit of me.
Friday arvo rolled around and my enthusiasm led me to the beach where I spent the night. Saturday was nothing but laughs and good times. Find it here
Sunday the sun was out and the water was calling. Almost too much of a good time
Monday and after a few rough nights sleep I was off home to recover (I feel I still am)
As far as simple living, this was a great example as long as you ignore the handful of camera batteries that I have to keep charging. Now here’s where I discuss a little bit of what we’ve been discussing lately. We live in a world where mental and physical health issues are on the rise. So is divorce, bullying and basically all the bullshit that is bad.
What is it that makes our way of life seemingly flawed? Is this endless pursuit for financial wealth at the expense of time, the reason it’s turning pear? When was the last time you took some time off to just do something you enjoyed?
Overall and what seems like the excuse everyone has, is that we don’t have the time.
My suggestion is go make some, while you have some.
See you at the beach!
