Many people want to move through life quickly always climbing up the ladder but not everyone has that path in mind. Some people just want to embrace the simple things and have their fun without going out of their way to push things too far.

While your friends might call you boring and you might sometimes feel like you’re missing out on something if you’ve chosen to live a quiet peaceful life, there is nothing wrong with that. You might have for a while tried to keep up with everyone else but you always felt out of place and that was for a reason. You don’t have to answer to other people if you want to mostly stay at home and are content where you are in life that is all that matters.

Being stuck in all of that ‘busy’ mess takes a toll on us and if you aren’t interested, don’t force it. You don’t have to push yourself to be someone you don’t want to be. If you’re content in living a simple life and tending to your garden or whatever it is you find that fills your soul, stop letting the world around you tell you that you need to change yourself.

For some of us, the simple life is the best life and the more we embrace that the better. If you’re feeling too caught up in other things and stressed to the point where the world is weighing down on you, you may need to rethink things. As human beings we often for some reason forget to be authentic with ourselves.

Don’t get me wrong, you should be open to trying new things and if you decide you want to do more you should go for it but you don’t have to. You can spend time focusing on your own wellbeing as a whole and nurturing your mind as well as your body. This will help you to truly figure out what you want and bring you to a place where you are prioritizing the things your heart pulls you to instead of fighting so hard to get ahead when you were doing just fine, to begin with.

I guess the point of this is that you don’t have to move to a big city and try to get along with all the people who don’t seem to give two shits about you if that’s not what you see is best for your life. If you really want to be out in the middle of nowhere spending your time doing the things that bring you the most joy, you should be doing exactly that.

You don’t have to work so hard to try and get rich before you’re old. Money, I promise won’t make you happy. You should strive to have your needs met and then to have the things you want within reason. This will in time become quite clear to you, I am sure. There is nothing wrong with wanting to just be a normal person who loves life.

While the television and other things you see may tell you that you have to try hard to build something worth remembering, that’s not the case. The truth is, nothing happens overnight and if you don’t want to spend years struggling, you don’t have to. If you’re not invested in that kind of thing don’t try to make yourself be. Life is what you make of it and you should be living the truth you know is yours.

For me, the quiet life is the best means of finding happiness and being content in this world and I wouldn’t change a thing. There are people who come around from time to time who try to tell me that I have more potential and that I could do more but the truth is, I am where I want to be and at the end of the day that is what matters. Only you get to choose the path you go down.
