I receive daily emails from Simple Truths. This one really spoke to me and I thought it was worth sharing with you!
|One of the conclusions people reach as they grow older and wiser is that less is usually more. When given the opportunity to simplify your life, take it!
Compare it to pruning a tree. By removing the excess branches, the tree has more energy to bear beautiful blossoms and healthy fruit. Your life is no different. When you continually prune the areas not bearing fruit, you will be able to focus your energy on what matters most.
Granted, “simplifying your life” means many things to different people. It can mean more time, less stress, less clutter, fewer bills, and greater peace of mind. Your personal quest for simplicity may include one or all of these possibilities.
There is no way to overstate the importance of a positive attitude in your life. However, no one can underestimate the difficulty in maintaining it. It’s not easy, and it’s a very personal thing, but it can be done.
