A Simpler Time – Random Thoughts Wednesday

There was a time not so long ago that life seemed so much simpler and slower paced.  Is it advanced technology that has changed our world?

I mean, I enjoy the internet and my cell phone, but must admit sometimes they can bring more stress than enjoyment.

Sometimes I feel I get information overload and have trouble concentrating.  There’s so many good websites and blogs out there with so many wonderful craft ideas, recipes, DIY projects, etc!  I want to do them all, then I’m disappointed when I can’t find the time or don’t have the money.

Really, I just want to “go back to the land” and try to raise and grow my own food.  To be more self-sufficient.

Does that sound crazy? Sounds like a lot of hard work, but that feeling of satisfaction would be so worth it.

I ran across this post over at Becoming Minimalist (dot) com.
