Having defined myself for years with the norms of London – Busyness, Action, Purpose – I’m now having to find myself in a new environment. And I ask myself, is living a content life enough?
The opposite of productive doesn’t have to be lazy. What if instead we decided it was content or present or aware or connected. In a world of BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER, HIGHER I’m looking for something different.
As I’ve been sorting through all we own to decide what comes with us on the next phase of our adventures to a new life in Canada I’m reflecting on who am I without my possessions and realising the power I am giving to inanimate objects.
If you were to die tomorrow would you have any regrets? We’re not on this earth for a long time and no-one really knows when it will be time for us to leave it, so why not enjoy the journey.
