Living life to the fullest without unnecessary complications
Happy day, friends of Hive. I extend to you warm greetings, accompanied by a genuine wish that you are well. Today, I want to share with you my point of view regarding minimalism and gatherings among friends. I hope you can read my post.
It is indisputable that there is a great variety of lifestyles. Generally we feel comfortable with those who think like us, however, we must be tolerant people and respect the philosophies of life that each person decides to lead in their lives, as long as they do not represent a physical or emotional threat to others.
Particularly, I am a person who loves a simple lifestyle. Over the years, I have realized that the most important thing is the quality moments you spend with your family and friends. Sometimes we damage these moments by being preoccupied with making an elaborate meal and the truth is that this makes me sad. Recently it happened to me with some friends. We had not seen each other in person for a long time because of the pandemic and since the number of Covid-19 cases in our country has decreased, the authorities have relaxed the biosecurity measures. We are now able to meet in person.
This brought us a lot of joy, so we decided to meet. However, it was not so easy to do so. We started planning a nice meal to share and it got to the point where we got so caught up in the preparation of the food that it ended up robbing us of the joy of sharing.
Some friends gave their opinion about something very elaborate, others said that something very simple was not appropriate because of the time we were going to meet, in short, I got tired of so many different opinions that I mentioned that the best thing was that everyone should bring what they could and when we got together we enjoyed having the opportunity to be together again in person after two long years of pandemic.
Here is my point of view on minimalism, we should not allow minor things to overshadow what really nourishes your soul. More important than what we were going to eat at our meeting was the fact that we had life in a setting where many people have passed away. This is a compelling reason to be happy and not be complicated by differing opinions regarding food.
A few years ago, things were different. Suddenly I would cook something tasty without consulting anyone and invite my friends and we would have a good time, but because of the various economic problems in our country, every gathering became an opportunity for everyone to put something together and then we put all the ingredients together and cook something tasty, since it is too much of a burden for one person to take care of all the expenses.
In view of this situation, I believe that having a simple vision for gatherings among friends is of vital importance. What should take precedence is the fact that our bonds of friendship grow closer every day no matter what we eat or what we drink.
After so many varied opinions with my friends, we were able to get together and spend a pleasant afternoon. Everyone brought what they could as I suggested and we had a great time. Although my vision of life differs from theirs, we got along very well because we have learned to be tolerant and above all to respect each ideology. Friends, life is fleeting, let's not allow superfluous things to prevent us from living to the fullest, giving importance to what is really worthwhile.
