Simple… when you think of that word you usually would think of easy right?
Well, that’s what I think of.. but it’s not always the case. Simple can also mean that it is composed of only one thing.. so it’s a simple compound… does that make sense? I sure hope so.
Regardless, one might think that life is simple. That we go through the motions just because we have to. Just that sentence within itself really bothers me. Yes, we may have to work to pay bills just so that we aren’t burdened, but there is always something more to life. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your job has to be the one thing in life that defines you and matters.
No.. not at all. I’m not sure why people think that their job is everything. It is only a part of life. It is only to provide money and possibly joy. But one thing that we have to recognize is that throughout life our job may change. There may always be something new that we learn or decide that we want to do. The fact that so many people rely on their job to make or break their lives really bothers me.
Why does it bother me? Because our job isn’t our lifeline. Sure it may provide health insurance and other benefits but the one issue that I have with it is that a good job is now linked to prestige.. which isn’t right.
We are more than our jobs. We are more than our choices. We are more than simple.
Saying that we’re simple holds us back. Please, never just say that you’re simple.
