How Simple is Simplicity?
I have been focussing the last few months on trying to simplify my life. My thoughts, my possesions, my decision making, my to-do list, my diet, everything!
That was the plan.
Today it occured to me, after reading about simplicity that, so far, I have actually managed to overcomplicate the simplification process and feel busier than ever! :D
I have to laugh at myself... and begin again. This time trying to simplify the simplifying process! :D :D
It's surprising, even when you're trying to be mindful, how easy it is to just slip into constant 'busy-ness' and being in our heads. So much so that we don't even realise how much we can overthink and overcomplicate pretty much anything! (clearly I can!)
I don't think simplicity necessarily means stopping working hard though, or living a very minimal lifestyle, I think sometimes it might just mean detaching from the mindset of 'struggle' and 'busy-ness' and enjoying as much as we can of the process.
What are your thoughts?
