Not that you asked. But I’m sitting here this morning on my “Saturday,” drinking a cup of coffee and listening to Island Boy read a news story about a village store in England that has been operating for 200 years (complete with a quaint little, old lady who ran it forever) and I had a sudden realization. Probably something that you already know.

Life is much easier if you stop trying to complicate things.

More and more these days, I find myself slipping back into old habits. Losing focus on why I live where I live, and why I made (and continue to make) the sacrifices required to be who and where I am right now.

It is actually quite simple. Just take things day by day (hour by hour, if necessary), and enjoy the now. Over-thinking things, worrying about what *might* happen, wishing for things to be different…all leads to one place. And that is an unhappy and unsatisfying place. A place I don’t really want to go again.

The key is remembering these words of wisdom when it matters. Which is pretty much all the time.

So easy, right?

Something to say? I'd love to hear from you!
