Simplicity Story
What Are My Priorities?

By Catherine Pulsifer, 2007

When living a simple life, there are times where you still need to determine what your priorities are. There are only so many hours in a day, and if you don't set some priorities you could end up wasting your day.

On my fridge I have a quote. that for me is one of my favorite deep and meaningful quotes. It reads like this:

"What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it."

This saying applies to everyone no matter what your lifestyle is.

So my dilemma with setting my priorities often comes down to doing housework (which I hate doing), or creating fused glass (which I love doing).

You guessed where my priorities are; they are in creating fused glass.

Not that I never do housework, but it is not on the top of my list. I have a friend who always seems to be doing housework. She often complains to me about never having the time to work on her paintings. Many times I have said to her, let the housework go just for a day. But, she always worries about some one dropping over and her house may be a bit untidy. I asked her what she think of me when she visits my home. She always replies, "But you are busy with your glass." And, I often reply to her, "Then why aren't you busy with your painting?"

The same goes for my Mum. When she comes to visit, she always dries the dishes. I often tell her let the dishes drip dry. In my opinion, it is a waste of time to dry dishes, and it is more sanitary if you let the dishes drip dry anyway. Rather than drying dishes, I would rather read a good book, go for a walk, call a friend - much more meaningful things to do than dry the dishes.

Living a simple life for me means doing the things I love to do.
Enjoying all that life has to offer.
It is about getting my priorities right - doing the things I love to do.
