Be simple

Be simple. A friend once told me these words. Not once, but many times. In fact, I hear this simple, yet memorable phrase, at least once a week. However, I like to think of myself as a complex person. Or serious person. Maybe a bit of both. Or a lot of both. Either way, a phrase as minimal as “be simple” cannot resonate enough advice than ever. Too many times I create complicated situations for myself. Or rather a snowballing effect occurs. Sometimes, rather, I generate more excuses than necessary to avoid a certain task. When in fact, the task is less effort than making excuses.

I feel I wrap myself up in my head. Thoughts speeding kilometers a second (yes kilometers) without a possibility, or time, to decipher them all. Or rather, dreams rushing through my synapses. The what if, or the what could have been scenarios. Instead of acting upon those dreams, I sat. Or now I sit rather. For all the hours wasted on thinking, if I acted, what can I do? Certainly I seek to fulfill some deep seeded desire. What that desire is, is still yet unknown.

I cannot for certain express my thoughts as striving for a “minimalist” life. Rather, I wish to clear my mind, and the space I occupy. For clarity arrives in clean spaces. Now pardon me as I sip some tea, and figure what to throw out and what to keep. Trying to live simply, is not so simple after all.

Stay calm. Work hard. Be Kind.

    1. Yeah. I have been feeling more at ease after trashing so many things. I don’t need so many items or “comforts of home” I feel. Do what makes you happy, right? Bad stigma or not 🙂 Also love your blog name!
