Thursday Thoughts. . . Time to Simplify

I've been thinking this for so long, I can't even tell you when I began. It seems like life is always so busy, I'm just waiting to get "through the next thing" so I can have some time to myself and yet the things keep coming one right after the other.

Yesterday, I was in the book store with Karen. We were looking at book covers and such as part of research. We are tackling a series of books to be written. We were going through the books, commenting on what we liked and didn't like. Then she stopped and looked at me and said,"Maybe we are just overthinking this. Maybe we just need to be simple."

Wow. What a relief. To think that I can start thinking simply. To be able to focus on one thing and make that the main thing. I'm going to be going through today just looking for ways that I can simplify. And if certain things don't get done today, maybe I WON'T stay up half the night trying to get them done. I'm looking at the autumn trees, watching them turn colors and I think,"Hmmmm. Maybe they've got it all figured out. They bud in the Spring. Flower. Produce berries, and when they are finished, they paint their leaves a stunning array of colors and let them go. Then they rest up so they can do it all over again come Spring." The trees are keeping the main thing the main thing.

Yours, ready to simplify,
