A friend recently said, Sometimes I dream of having a simple life.
When I asked what a simpler life would look like, painting the picture didn’t come easy for her. She was largely at a loss for words to define “a simple life”.
Which left me wondering: What does it mean to long for something if you can’t define what it is?
Maybe I’m over thinking, but the conversation has been gnawing at the back of my mind.
What does it mean to say you want a “simple life”, but not be able to define simple?
Is the inability to truly articulate what we want a significant barrier to making it happen?
