Life can be a mystery;one not too hard to demystify though.See,in life there are whites or black,then we add the grey,because we want the best of both worlds.When we are not able to choose left over right,we sit on the fence.When we want to receive yet not ready to let go,we end up with a complicated tangle.When I sit back and take a long look at life.When I view it objectively,and not emotionally,I realize most of the ‘drama’ I have had,haven’t been because life is complicated but more because I was or I chose to complicate the situation.
Life is about choices and in my life,I have found that the web forms when I am not sure about which choice to make;which route to take.That is when,gray appears,and this indecision,for me at least.is always brought about by my wanting to eat my cake and still have it.Wanting the best of both worlds knowing full well that I cannot serve two masters at the same time.Easier said than done,right?
I agree.The right things to do are always somewhat the most difficult ones.They are the ones that need courage and bravery,which sadly most of us lack.Most of us would rather hide behind the shadows than face the truth up front.We prefer 50-50 kind of lifestyle.This somehow has no direct consequences because you are on either side and so we prefer being luke-warm about so many things rather than choosing one path.
I am tired of complicated though.I do not know about you but I am going to untangle my web.I am going to do simple,and this is one day at a time.I will not give something or someone more thought than they require.I have a very active imagination that tends to run wild and I need to learn to know that though looks can be deceiving,sometimes,what you see is exactly what you get.Call a spade a spade and not a big spoon-that right there is already a complication.Calling something by a different name other than its own so that what?What do you hope to achieve?I’m not sure why exactly I behave the way I do but I know simple always works wonders.
I am practicing to simply be in the moment.Not to have 27 applications running in my head at the same time.Do one thing at a time because as much as women can multitask, something always has to give way to the other.And so,I am learning to live one day at a time.Not anticipating tomorrow because it won’t have any impact.To stop worrying over things I can truly do nothing about because worry is like a rocking chair;gives you something to do but takes you nowhere.I am learning to accept facts as they come.To know that I do not have to have my way all the time for things to actually work out.At times,not being in control is what is needed for things to be in control!
I am learning to cross bridges when i reach them because i cannot possibly cross a bridge in my mind.I have got to do it physically.So,I choose,daily,not to wear myself out with crossing bridges that are miles away when i have some right here and now that need my attention.Learning to focus on the now believing God has the whole world in His hands and hence I can relax.
It is not easy but when I do it one day at a time,the burden is lessened;the journey shortened.I may not be where I want to be but at least I am not where I used to be.That means I am making progress.And times that’s all you need to get you to the next level.To make progress.To take that one step,because with every step,you end up at a different spot.It may not be easy to notice at first,but keep doing it and one day you will look back and be amazed at how far you will have moved.
Be easy on yourself.Life is here for your enjoyment.Do not take it too seriously or you may miss the rainbow in the midst of a storm.Smile more and laugh every so often;it keeps you younger and brightens the world.All I’m saying is,do not complicate life for yourself.Know what you want and pursue it.Stop and smell the roses on your way;don’t be too tense…It’s never that serious…
One thought on “SImplicity…..”
You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
