Simple by definition is: 1. Free from Guilt 2. Free from Vanity 3. Free from Ostentation or Display (source). In my opinion, this is a beautiful word. I would like (and try) to live each day simply. Free of the guilt from not saying yes to every obligation, worrying that my kids aren’t eating enough vegetables, or that the news is going to play another sad story. Free from vanity and worrying about what other people think of me and asking myself: Do I measure up? Free from envying others and materialized possessions.
Its the start of a new day and I want to take a deep breath and live it Simply.
This is what simple looks like to me:
- Enjoying that cup of coffee or tea
- Complimenting others
- Taking that extra minute to myself
- Feeling of hopefulness
- Walk in the Sunshine
- Afternoon playing with my Kids
- Having dinner as a family
What do you do to live simply in all this clutter that life brings? If you could remove one thing to make your life a little simpler, what would it be?
When we simplify our lives, we become more available to other life experiences.
