Simplicity

There are many people who are admired by their courage.

They climb mountains, they go skydiving or they travel across the ocean on a boat.

Those are great things if the person who does them has a genuine desire for that. And they achieve great satisfaction by doing it.

But I know some people who are great in their simplicity.

Maybe they are low profile and are not considered brave for doing such things.

But they are the people who many others want to have around when they need someone to listen. They do not want to win all the time.

And for me they have a brave heart. Because they are not afraid of giving themselves to help the others. And they do not want to take advantage from that.

Appreciating what you have and enjoying a simple life is seen as stupidity in our culture. It takes great courage to choose simplicity.

    I agree. Do what you enjoy doing and not to impress others.

      Thanks! I do, I was talking about other people that I admire by simplicity. But I’m quite simple indeed, just not for everything.
