Convenience

2 Apr

I find it interesting that we almost universally choose to save time and money, and then wonder why we are not content.

Our fast-food culture has provided us with many amazing conveniences, like instant messaging and instant coffee, but you know what you won’t find on any 99-cent, 60-second-guaranteed delivery “convenience” menu?

Anything worth having and keeping.

How do I know?

Because I’m just like you, and I do it all the time.  I take the fast road to work instead of enjoying the beautiful views of a drive that takes only ten minutes longer.  Worse, I grab a fast-food breakfast on my fast-drive commute, which means I’m not savoring the meal any more than I’m savoring the scenery.

I’m not savoring living.

The next time you think your  life needs a quick, fast fix — stop and think!  What is this worth to you — really worth?  Is it worth having and keeping?  If it is, can you really do it  well in only 60 seconds with a 99-cent budget?

Maybe….but maybe not.

If you’re like most people, probably not.  If you’re like most people…even your hugs don’t last 60 seconds.

Maybe, with just a little more time and a little more energy… well, maybe we’d be just a little more content with our lives.
