Simplify

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

– Confucius

Simplify. How does that one word make you feel? To me, it fills me with both dead and hope. When I think about that word, it makes me reflect on not just my surroundings, but my emotional state also. 

Can I simplify? 

I look around me and wonder how on earth I complicated everything so much. Did I overschedule the kids, did I lack motivation. It is easy to say that life has gotten in the way. Has it really? Or is it a convenient excuse.

I think it is both. 

I want to show you what a full time working mother can do to help make life a little easier. But I already know I can’t do it on my own, so any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This isn’t just about organizing cupboards or easy meals (although I think that will be a good chunk of this) but about trying to get us to change our mindset to not focus on how complicated life is, but how we can simplify.
