“Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful.”

John Maeda
There’s something about living a simple life that grasps the essence of my dreams.  The way of life that doesn’t require much…except for a pile of love and gratitude. 
Lately, we’ve been all too busy.  Packing to move, business decisions/opportunities/year-end, fighting sickness, preparing for the new house, sleepless nights (I think Judah’s teething again??), working weekends, family events, extra-cirricular activities (or lack thereof)…blah blah blah.  We’ve let the right-now, “obvious” things in our equation take the importance of our time.  Over multiplication of things we’ve, in a sense, chosen the road of complication.
No one else is responsible for the lives we live, but us.  There are elements, yes, that we war off/accept that can change the course of our path.  But how we utilize our time and see it’s outcome is something only you or I can determine for ourselves.  Our attitude and credence of value starts with a decision – a decision to not get wrapped up in the obvious.  
Simplicity is a choice.  As is chaos.  What do you choose for your time?

    Lauren Knight - Such a lovely picture, and I can really relate to your words. We try so hard to live a simple life… we don’t even own a television! But things creep back in and complicate life. Hope your move goes well. You have a lovely family!ReplyCancel
