So a few posts back I put up a picture of why I need simple. It had to do with my toddler, but after some thought and some learning, it was really an internal thing I needed. Yes, there are things I could do to simplify my surroundings, but there was and is some much needed work that needs to get done on the inside as well.
As luck would have it, I won a free ticket to the SimpleRev conference. First ever, two day conference with 46 individuals and some amazing speakers. There were tears, laughter, lots of hugs, and more importantly, lots of sharing. I learned much both at the conference and at home while talking with my hubby.
As time goes by, I will post more about the conference and some of the things I took way from it. But I want to leave you with this thought, life doesn't have to be complicated and simple doesn't have mean bare bones. Just being present, realizing that you already have enough in front of you to be happy, and being grateful. You don't need stuff to fill those spaces that are better suited for a change of heart, a change of mind, and a change of attitude. Being simple is simply living life with intention and to fullest that you can. So smile, take a deep breath, look around you, and firmly plant your foot in a direction of happiness. The rest of the steps will fall into place.
