The Beauty of Simple

Updated: Oct 8, 2018

As you know, my divorce several years ago set me on a journey to bring more joy, laughter, love and happiness into my life and the lives of others around me. There are days when it's still hard but that challenge is what keeps me going.

I'm one of those people who thrive on change, growing and learning. I love to make things better especially when it comes to myself. While rising to the challenge of bringing more happiness into my life I discovered that simplifying EVERYTHING is one of the easiest ways to create happiness.

There are so many things in our world that add undo stress to our lives; work, school, relationships, society, and a thousand other things. It's no surprise all those things chip away at our happiness and add up to one huge downer over time.

If you're looking for ways to simplify your road to happiness too, give these few tips a try.

Cleaning the clutter and letting go of EVERYTHING that weights me down gives me room to breathe and makes it easier to focus on the things that make me happy. When I cling to material objects, past emotions or relationships; I'm allowing those things to take control over me, leach away my happiness and weigh down my heart.

Shortening my to-do list lessens stress and gives my heart and mind the space and time it needs to focus on what really matters. If I'm overwhelmed with too many things my happiness suffers and so do others around me.

Removing negative people and situations from my life keeps me positive and helps me see the amazing things I already have. It's easier to blame others, use excuses and forget to be grateful when negativity pollutes the air I breathe.

Remember the simplest solutions are usually the most effective.

'til next time,
