Awesome # 330: Simplicity

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated”
Confucius

Let’s face it, we complicate things.

We buy things we don’t need, we bite off more than we can chew, we stick our nose into other people’s business, and we think far too deeply about things – even things that don’t matter so much.

Finding life’s simplicity is difficult as it is. In this day and age – an age of technology, of social networking, of public cyber-announcements of things best left private; an age of both great social and professional comparison and competition; an age of excessive introspection and self-psychoanalysis – finding life’s simplicity is even harder. It takes great self-discipline and restraint sometimes.

But when we are able to escape, evade, overcome or cast aside whatever complications may arise in our lives, and relish in a little simplicity, it feels awesome.
