Everybody Needs a Rock is a beautiful story for all ages, and a lesson about finding contentment and joy in the smallest things - in simplicity. Just reading it makes you feel peaceful and calm....and then, if you're like me, you get going with the rest of the day and completely lose sight of it. In the midst of all the stuff in our lives, getting to "simple" is - well - complicated!
Since I'm usually on the edge of frantic when it comes to getting stuff done I won't waste your time with words of wisdom from my side of the computer, but I do think it's always always worth our while to keep this goal in mind. Contentment and simplicity are all around us, even in a rock, if we just remember to look.
