Cut the tethers for the simple life

A tether is a cord that anchors something movable to a stationary point. Our lives get filled with these tethers that restrict our goals and limit our prosperity. Those houses we buy, the jobs we take, bad habits we aquire, and a myriad of other things in our life limit our choices. Our available choices only become more varied when we seek to cut those tethers. Cutting a tether is often a hard choice and we must concentrate on doing one at a time.

Each tether we cut, we have more motion to explore new areas of our life. I envy those that can cut all their tethers at once and fly free. Freedom can be both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. This may be more than you are comfortable taking on at one time. Some can only cut one tether while they tether a different part of their life to something else. Staying tethered will keep you from living the simple life

I currently have almost nothing tethering my life. Some of the tethers I cut myself and some were cut by others. I don't have a house, a wife, or debt. The only person I have to support is myself and I am healthy. The simple life is calling me.  Either way, I find myself free to explore in a way that hasn't ever happened before in my life. The rest of my life should be quite a change from the years already passed.
