TSA#42 – Live Like You’re Camping

Sep 5, 2012 by

I love camping and I realized something on this last trip.

We should live every day like we are camping.

When you are camping, life is simple.   You get up when the sun is up and you go to bed when its dark, or when you run out of firewood.

You have only what you need and nothing more.  If you don’t have something you need, someone will always share theirs.

You’re meals are all prepared together with others helping out where they are needed.  You get to sit together around a picnic table or campfire and enjoy each others company and some amazing home made food.

Everyone you encounter is friendly and says hello when you stroll through camp.  A campfire is always a welcoming place for new friends.

Kids and adults alike can make a new friend with a new neighbor within a matter of minutes and it is perfectly OK to sit around half the day and just be.  Nowhere to rush off to, and no pressing to-do list waiting for you; you are allowed to sit and be still with friends and family.  That is a wonderful thing.

I hope you got to go camping over Labor Day weekend.  If not I hope you have a trip planned soon so you can experience the simple joy of camping.

Your TSA this week is to bring a little bit of that simple life of camping home and live it each day.


TSA = Truly Simple Actions The goal of the TSA project is to improve your life and help make this world a better place, one simple action at a time.  Take time this week to do this one simple thing.
