Saturday Sayings by YoTrip for September 17, 2011-A Simplier Time (Vol.1, Iss.2)
A Simplier Time (Vol.1, Iss.2)
Saturday’s back in the day, were a simplier time. Oh how Saturdays were looked forward to because we had our chores list to complete after breakfast. Once the work was done we could play in our room, we could go outside and play in the yard, or play in the neighborhood.
Those Saturday’s were a simplier time. The sounds of music filled the air as we jammed on our boom box with our cassette tapes to Prince, Micheal Jackson, Madonna and others. We sang along with the music and pretended we were in the videos that played on Soul Train and American Bandstand. The times were so simplier than they are now.
We had Pac-man and Centiped slow moving video games, not play stations and Xbox 360. Cable tv had at most, 25 channels, not 250. We watched sitcoms and dramas, not over the top reality shows and drama filled talk shows. The news was informative and on at 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm, not entertainment that runs around the clock. It was a simplier time.
I am the first one to embrace change and doing things to improve, but this “microwave mentality” is out of control. It is time to add some simplier things to our fast-paced living. When was the last time you looked at nature and your surroundings. Learn to turn off the madness of the world and watch some TV Land, catch one of the old shows.
Sure we are all busy and have full lives to live, but time is flying by quickly, so start now! A simplier time is waiting, grab hold and make it happen.
