I think Confucius said it best:
As a child life is simple. We live free spirited with out a care in the world. As get older, we start to experience life, I guess. I believe that deep down inside, we all long to go back to that place when life was SIMPLE. At what point in our life experience did we begin to complicate the simple things?
I am trying to go back deep in my psyche when things were simple. I would get up on a Saturday morning, before my mom woke up, get my bowl of cereal, sit in my high chair (yes I sat in my high chair until I was 5) and watched my morning educational cartoons such as School House Rock. Simple…
So true. I could just simply write, but there are all these thoughts; which hinders my focus. when I first read this book and began this journey in 1198, I wrote that I personally do not over complicate things, and truth told I really don’t. I don’t stress as much over things as others do. Yet, I have an expectation of how things should be done, which when it does not happen, I start to overthink, over process, complicate. I get frustrated, annoyed and even angry…Over what? Oh Yeah, its real simple, either it is going to get done or its not. easier said then done.
I am working on it though. Being simple in everything. God simply created me: Genesis 1:27 says “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Simple. God simply loves me. Jesus simply died for me.
Affirmation:Today I understand the SIMPLE truth that my life does not need to be complicated. Today I accept the SIMPLE truth that SIMPLE faith, grounded in SIMPLE trust, grounded by SIMPLE prayer, will yield SIMPLY fantastic results! And for that knowledge of SIMPLE truth I am so grateful.- One Day My Soul Just Opened Up Day 9- Simplicity)
Stay on this Journey with me. I promise you it will be worth it!
