Let's KISS: Keeping it Simple, Silly

(Source)
It is such a beautiful day in Kentucky!  Low 70's, sunshine, light breeze... just perfect.  So, understandably, I'm struggling to sit here and write this post today!  (Secret - I'm taking many breaks just to sit outside or do some "chores" and certainly have the windows open.)  It's glorious!!  Is it nice where you are today?  Get out there if you can!!

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all you have on your plate?  Yeah, dumb question, I know, we've all been there at one time or another.  That's just life!  Because life is crazy, sometimes it's really important to just take a step back, focus on what's important, and keep it simple.

“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy”



Here are some ideas to keep today more simple:
  • Instead of an elaborate workout at the gym, just take a simple walk outside enjoying nature and spending time with your thoughts
  • Instead of a gourmet meal, just make a simple nutritious meal like a healthy chicken breast and steamed broccoli as a side (this can be delicious too!)
  • Instead of worrying about putting together the most fashionable outfit, just wear something simple that is clean and comfortable 
  • Instead of letting your messy house stress you out, just spend some time simply reading a book or coloring in your Adult Coloring book
  • Instead of hitting the mall for the big sale this weekend, just simply go through your closet to find something you haven't worn in a while and pretend it's new
  • Instead of zoning out on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, just work on a simple hobby or project that you've been wanting to do
And most importantly!
  • Instead of worrying about tomorrow and what it might (but probably won't!) bring, simply focus on today and the wonders that are all around you
