Thoughts While Creating
It is waiting for you too my friend.
A little over 10 years ago we gave it all up. The big house, the fancy cars, the lavish lifestyle, and moved our family to a small town - far from it all. Many of my friends (at the time) could not believe that anyone with a life as great as ours would just get up one day and decide that it was time to give it all up. Our youngest daughter told her friends that we moved to the “End of the World”.
Far from the "big city" we found a great place and bought an old wooden cabin (furnished with modern conveniences of course). Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, integrated with nature we even expanded our family to include the friend you see in the scene. Every evening when we come home from our various endeavors she is waiting there ready to greet us as though we are seeing her for the first time. Yes our life changed dramatically, and we are all the better for it.
The next time you feel the stress of life bearing down on you please take a moment and catch your breath and reflect on this story. There might come a time in your life’s journey that you need to have a friend waiting for you to help return you to nature’s neighborhood at the end of the world.
