Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Leonardo DaVinci

It's a choice to live simply.  Sometime a difficult choice but a wise choice!

"It's Time for Beautiful Simplicity"
We just had the absolute best weekend as our son, Chris, married Ashley Swanson on Saturday, July 25.  The had a beautiful outdoor wedding and the weather could not have been more perfect!  We all had a great time and we are so happy that Chris and Ashley found each other and are now happily married.

They both decided that they wanted a small, intimate wedding and it was perfect.  It was beautiful simplicity in action.  As I was thinking about their wedding I decided to write this month's newsletter on simplicity and how important it is for us in our lives.

It's Time for Beautiful Simplicity

Life can be crazy, just crazy.  But a lot of it we bring on ourselves.  We may not mean to but we do.

What if we took on a new attitude of simplicity?  Simplicity in our conversation, simplicity in our attitude, simplicity in our tasks, simplicity in our relationships, simplicity.

I feel relaxed just thinking about it!

What would this new simplicity attitude look like? For me it looks like this:
  • Being more direct in my conversations
  • Saying what I feel
  • Less talk; more action
  • Less worry
  • Being choosier about my tasks each day - deciding what is really important and doing those first
  • Not responding to every phone call and deleting more e-mails
  • Going through our closets...again!
  • Getting back to planing our menus a week in advance
  • Making sure I have contact with each of my kids every day
  • Really listening to my husband
  • Taking time at the end of each day to tidy up my office
  • Sitting outside more
  • Exercising at least 5x a week
  • Hanging out with only supportive people
  • Getting up 30 minutes earlier
  • Cleaning out all the extra 'stuff' I've accumulated in my business supply closet
  • Longer devotional time every day
