I pulled a lot of weeds on Saturday. A whole season's worth in one go. But I didn't mind, because it was a beautiful day and I had the wisteria blossoms to keep me company, plus it gave me lots of time to think about this life and what I want to accomplish in it. I realized that my goals are actually quite simple. They are mainly: to be content with what I have, and to serve those around me. I think if I could master those two things I would have a lifetime of happiness.
Here's the thing: I want to live a small life. I want to decide to be content with what I have, to turn my focus to my family. I want to work to improve myself, and to not worry about what anyone else is doing. The world will keep on turning and changing and trying to tell me that I need to do or be or have more. I have no control over that. But I do have control over what happens in my living room with my little family. And that's the most important thing anyway.
Some deep thoughts for a Monday, I guess. How was your weekend?
