MC's Whispers

Whispering Silences

Missing the simple

©Lisa Fox

When someone tells you there is not enough time in the day to do everything necessary, believe them. It is only when you are found in the same situation that you realise how true it is to not be able to fit everything you must do into the few hours of the day.

When we over-cramp our schedules, taking on more responsibilities that we can physically endure, we are testing our own limits.

This is when we appreciate the simplest things the most: sleep, a warm bed, a massage, good company, a cabin away from everything, and calm and silence.

  1. You’ve captured the sense of the crazy pressures our lives sometimes present us with, and the longing to escape to a simpler, slower pace. I especially like that you’ve included a massage in your list of life’s simple pleasures. 😌

  6. Definitely guilty of over-scheduling over here, MC. I love our cabin trips, exactly how you’ve captured it.

  7. Well said, this is why i love a chance to retreat to my tent in the woods and do precisely nothing for a week once in a while.
