enjoying life

life is too easy.

we don't scrap for food, we don't gather around a fire. we have food handed on plates bred by some mysterious person... somewhere. wherever restraunts find chicken.

we pay someone else to build a dwelling that we can't afford. we get mad at video games and anticipate the next "product" to come out.

and it's so hard to sit back and enjoy all these little pleasures... but we've been trained to just sit back and complain.

and we, as Christians, who have inherited the earth... why is it so hard sometimes to smile and enjoy? why is it so hard to let go of stress and let go of ourselves?

i just want to be content and happy. and be content that everyone else is content and happy.

why do so many of us miss out on enjoying life and can't even understand why?
