The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less. ~ Don Millman
I’m noticing something. Unfortunately I think its become a norm. When I run into someone at the store or ask someone about their weekend, they tell me about how busy they’ve been. While busy isn’t bad- the look of busy doesn’t always look good! What are we doing to stay chronically busy? I crave rest. I want to be busy doing the things that give me life and with the people that I feel rested just being around. I know… I’m still gonna be busy, but if there is one thing I’m committed to this year its simplicity. I’m just finishing a book a started months ago and mentioned here about the simple life. The whole challenge of the book is to go through your life (house) and evaluate things in two ways: is it beautiful to me? is it practical? If not- its taking up time and space in your life that it shouldn’t have. The truth is.. we have too much. We do too much.
I really just want to “be”.
This morning during naps I cleaned through drawers and am feeling refreshed by looking at the temporary clean. What do you do to add simplicity to your life?
