2012 Affirmations # 3 - Simplicity

Simple and easy are not the same thing.

Easy is the instant solution - do this and you get that - the magic bullet - that isn't always so magical.

Simple is more organic. More complex. Simple is something we seek with our hearts as much as our heads.

This year I am affirming simplicity by making the choices to clear clutter (inner and outer), making the time to meditate (got off track over the holidays and felt the loss of grounding immediately) and making the things that are most meaningful to me a priority.

Simplicity is not about reducing ourselves to a smaller size - it is about clearing the clutter and chaos to create the space to grow into our true selves.

I'm doing the same thing Cat! It has involved a whole lot of trips to the thrift store!

So true, yet often goes unsaid. Simplifying is so much easier said than done, but when you're "there" it makes all the difference in the world. I feel like we're on the same wavelength, Cat! :)
