So many of us are burdened by demands, pulled in numerous directions by various people and situations. Of course, some of that is normal and simply part of life, but I think we make things harder than they need to be, and we can make things more simple, relaxed, and easy.
In general, I want and need fewer demands, fewer lists, less stuff, less clutter, less stress.
And the funny thing about this is that I originally wanted to write a wonderful, expressive, powerful post about this. But you know what? I will even simplify that.
Simply said – here is how I now simplify my life.
I now stop overthinking things and making everything complicated.
I now take more breaks, more deep breaths, and more naps.
I now spend more time outside in nature and just breathe.
I now allow things to be as they are and not try to fight so many things.
I now deal with what is in front of me and not worry about anything else.
I now do a lot more nothing and I am okay with that.
I now do not need to respond to every e-mail or request.
I now buy less stuff (except books – I love books!).
I now enjoy my time and my life at this moment – not when I reach some future destination down the road. Now.
I now treasure peace, joy, happiness, calmness, and relaxation. I prefer to slow down, appreciate what I have, and thoroughly enjoy my life, just as it is.
I now open to all of Life, letting that energy, exuberance, joy, creativity, radiance, and Love flow through me and express itself.
I now enjoy the simplicity and complexity and enormity of Life itself – just by being more present.
I don’t need more than that.
Simplify. Ahhhhh – it’s like coming home.
