The beauty about simplicity is that it can mean so many different things to each and every one of us. My understanding of what simplicity means to me is something that I have learned over the years of growing up. I take simplicity as something so important in my life that I don’t use it sparingly.
The way I think has changed, the way I do things have changed, the way I live my life has changed.
All of because of the art of simplicity.
Less complications. I understand that in life we will be challenged in many different ways but the way we deal with these challenges doesn’t have to be complicated. I used to be an avid over-thinker but I soon realised that it doesn’t help and can tend to make things worse. I set up a system in my mind that when I am challenged, I think carefully and thoroughly about what I need to do next. This helps to ensure that my next move is beneficial & creates a positive outcome.
Another way of engaging this way of thinking through simplicity is to think in the present moment. The reason for this, is because the present is what we live in. Each day has new opportunities and ventures to embark on. I like to take each day as it comes, planting seeds for the future, but not looking to deeply into it. I find that if you try to plan a future situation with so much force, I tend to find that it may not happen the way you want it to.
Plant seeds each day to set yourself up for the future.
I also look at simplicity in my style or in the things I like to buy. I’m currently looking at different ways to simplify my bedroom but to have it look as artistic as possible. For me, white walls and white furniture, with a splash of colour here and there is perfect. I feel that this kind of style shows that regardless of how simple the base is, the splash of colour shows personality and life!
Simplicity has difffernt meanings for us all. There isn’t a correct meaning for it as we all have different ways of life and thinking so it will come into play for different reasons. As long as you know that you are living with the best mindset and that you are taking each day as it comes, simplicity will follow.
Think to yourself, whenever things start to become complicated, or you find yourself overthinking too deeply about something, just remember to keep it simple.
Tell yourself, Keep it Simple, Yeah?
