Today I wanted to talk about living simple. The whole “minimalist” idea has become a fad for our wardrobe and home, but what about our hearts and the way we respond to everyday situations?
“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”- Confucius
We make such a big out of EVERYTHING. Things that are supposed to be so simple can be made complicated very quickly. Drama is something that consumes life. Imagine how much simpler life would be if we just calmed down. We’ve all had that situation that was so stressful at the time, but as we look back we can see all of the drama that could have been avoided. I challenge you this week to take these words of Confucius to heart, “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Not every situation deserves a response. Not every comment has to have a reply. Let’s simplify our lives by first simplify our hearts. Take a self inventory and think about what truly matters. Think about how you can apply simplicity to your life and actions. Let’s be simple.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s quote! Have a great day and dare to enjoy the little things and sunshine:)
