Can we keep things simple? Or should I rather say; can I dare keeping things simple? Sometimes this creates an issue for me.
I spoke with a colleague yesterday about job, family and social life. This person still has young children, mine are old and have their own children. My colleague said "I don't have much of a social life now. The spouse had once said that she always gets so stressed before they are giving a party. "Yes," she said to me, "I want the house to be perfectly clean and tidy and I want the food to be perfect".
Here is where my reflections enter. Can I dare to keep life more simple? Can I dare inviting our friends to our house even if it is not one hundred percent clean and tidy? Can I dare serving a soup and maybe homemade buns? Or perhaps just a sandwich and a cup of coffee? Can I dare inviting friends and ask them to make a contribution to the meal?
Can I simply dare to enjoy some time with my friends and family without making it complicated and getting stressed out? And can I dare to express my gratitude for what I have in my life and be content and happy?
Dare to be simple. Dare to be different. ®
