I Taught Myself To Live Simply by Anna Akhmatova – Live Without A Worry.

on

“I taught myself to live simply and wisely,

to look at the sky and pray to God,

and to wander long before evening”

then at night, lock the world outside the door;

teach yourself how not to worry,

about those temporary things made important

by misplaced values, life is not only about money,

okay, money makes the world go round

but money can’t buy what makes life worth living,

without happiness, life has no meaning,

so let nothing disturb you, live freely,

at night, in bed, sleep like a baby,

“Only the cry of a stork landing on the roof occasionally breaks the silence.

If you knock on my door I may not even hear.”
