If you have been reading for a while you have probably heard me talk about simplifying. Oh, how I long for a simple, uncomplicated life! One thing that I am learning is that no matter how much you try to simplify you will still encounter times of chaos, stress and bumps in the road.
Sometimes it is just the way it is and sometimes it is self inflicted. One thing that I have a problem with is saying no. I really want to be helpful and sometimes put helping others above the welfare of my own family. I am trying hard to work on this!
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. ~Confucius
Another thing that I think helps with living a simple life is contentment. It is so easy to have the grass is always greener thought. I have everything I need and then some and need to keep reminding myself of this.
You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.~Vernon Howard
It is easy to get stressed by all the little things. As with all things if it is truly the desire of your heart it is worth doing.
