Choosing Simplicity

Isn't the idea of simplifying so complex??  To me it is.  But still, it seems like when life gets too busy and crazy that somehow I let go of the extra stuff instinctively.  I just wish I would not take so much on in the first place.  I am learning though...

{from here}

Ever heard this wonderful poem?

To live content with small means; 
to seek elegance rather than luxury, 
and refinement rather than fashion; 
to be worthy, not respectable, 
and wealthy, not, rich; 
to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; 
to think quietly, act frankly, 
talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; 
in a word, 
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--
this is my symphony.


Love love love that poem!

That totally made me laugh! Living simply is so complex!! It has been nice being snowed in for the last few days forcing me to slow down and relax and enjoy my kiddos.
