This summer I’ve listened to a lot of Zac Brown Band (fine, I listen to them all year round, but especially summer). Jekyll + Hyde is an awesome album, what can I say? A particular line from the song “Homegrown” sticks with me, and has since the first time I heard the song. “I have everything I need, and nothing that I don’t.” This lyric has inspired a lot of thought about Happiness v. Contentment, the nature of greed and satisfaction, and the list really goes on and on. (I can’t imagine why co-workers tell me I over think things sometimes.)
I think this Swedish word, lagom, sums it up as nicely as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I’m working on shaving off all that unnecessary stuff, and cultivating a life that’s “just right”.
How do you prune the excess out of your life? Heck, how do you decide what you don’t need? (I may be a bit of a pack rate both literally and metaphorically)
‘Til next time,
