Simple Life

simple-life

What is a successful life? Is it,

Fashionable appearance head to toes,

Famous restaurants frequently go,

Decorative home like the Jones,

Elite brand of cars cruising around town!

Somehow to me, they are not attractive,

In fact, I find them stressful.

*

Content is mine, a simple life.

Roof on top of my head,

Garden for my flowers and plants,

Healthy meals on the table,

Time to learn and exercise.

Loving husband to have and to hold,

Precious family so dearly close.

  1. Miriam, What a Really GREAT post! Loved – Content is mine, a simple life. This is such a great topic. Great job on the Daily Prompt. I think the Daily Prompt is always a fun challenge and good motivation.

    Also, I really like Ralph Waldo Emerson’s – Success quote. That is a long time classic.

  2. What is life about?

    Years have seemed to pass like seconds. A familiar face in the market has brought back all the nostalgia and memories. Days turn into nights and weekends turn to weekdays and we work on and on , like machines , grinding against the noise , to support ourselves and the ones we hold dear. But have we ever stopped for a single minute, to not do anything, to just breathe , to just be? Β The years have taught us a great many lessons , we have laughed , we have cried , we have feared , we have felt joy , sadness ,anger ,betrayal and loss , euphoria , madness , relief , jealousy and every other emotion on a spectrum . We have traveled , met people, felt lonely , connected with people and the internet , listened to people, listened to songs, got a new haircut , read things , wrote things and talked. But ever have we introspected ourselves, our emotional growth and our soul’s whispers? Have we ever really asked ourselves what is it that we really want , what is it that we are here for? Have we ever told ourselves that life isn’t about materialistic things and cars and jewellery, technological devices and watches ,rather,Its about making people smile , being there for others and for ourselves. Its about dancing in the rain , counting the clouds with a six year old. Its about long walks and late night talks. Its about the people we meet and connect with. Its about helping and being a shoulder to cry on. Life is all about the summer and the sweet smell of it.Β
