Keep it Simple - huh?
Good morning friends,
I'm so often talking about keeping it simple and every once in a while in my own life I realize that I've gotten beyond Simple and made things too complicated in everyday life.
Sometimes it looks like the way that I choose to make coffee one day or the items that I decide I want to bring into my life and then I have to reevaluate and maybe let some things go. Sometimes they simply just find myself a little settled a little bored almost and I hunt for ways to make everything better.
I find it amazing the few times in my life when I've realized I have everything I need I have enough I don't need a bigger income I don't need another kitchen item I don't need a new shirt I don't need a different new food in my diet. There's a satisfaction that comes with realizing that I have enough I am enough I have a stable life and stable friendships but even if some of them are silly ones I have a balance of helping others and self-care.
sure there are things to upgrade as something wears out I may choose to have a little more quality I've been able to translate that into my diet and switch from processed foods years ago over to whole foods and then with the property and the new greenhouse that I built I'm able to grow a lot of my own everyday foods and provide an even even better upgrade in that part of my diet. I find myself sometimes searching for another piece of equipment to make daily life a little easier or to add another project. It's not really necessary for me to do those things my life is full and satisfying when I keep it simple I think it's probably a human idea to keep searching for the better but sometimes the better is relaxing into the now of what works and the using what we already have the enjoying the current batch of friends rather than making new ones the enjoying the projects that are right in front of us just because we live whether it's dusting the car when I'm living in the car or or possibly processing my wood when I'm on the property there really is no need for more in that.
Keeping it simple is the statement that I heard probably in my childhood and at that time people would say keep it simple stupid I don't like the stupid word I don't like it being used with myself I don't like using it on myself I don't like using it with others so if my teenage years I decided to change it for me and I now say keep it simple silly! We might ask what is simple and honestly it's whatever works for you in my life for making my coffee I have days when I want to use one coffee maker or another I like coffee but I can make it complicated and then it's annoying and then I have lots of other simple ways to make coffee so if I want to change I just switched to another mode for a while. It's like choosing to switch your coffee cup or change your T-shirt color or something.
Whatever form I need to change today again I'm reminding myself to keep it simple silly!
