"Instant gratification takes too long". Carrie Fisher
We live in a society that seems to demand everything and wants everything now. In America the material life seems to be an inherent part of who we are and how we live. You know I used to feel that way when I lived in the mainland, but things did change dramatically when I went to Hawaii and had to downsize alot of the material possesions and also downsize ideas about living with things and conveniences around me.
Now, I find that living simply in Hawaii is a better way to live and to enjoy things happening in their sweet time.
I love seeing flowers take the time to bud and surprise me with the blooms finally unfolding.
I love to get fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables from the garden and come up with creative dishes.
Taking the time to enjoy simple things like driving to the ocean and watching a sunrise is my way of connecting to nature and enjoying the moment.
Seeing a world of green instead of concrete and highways gives me peace of mind and spirit.
