There is Beauty in Simplicity

December 23, 2017


Personally, I've found that simplicity and practicality go hand in hand. I am always looking for ways to simplify all routines in my life. It seems like an endless task of downsizing and reorganizing... emails, clothing, shoes, paperwork, books, photos, houseware, schedule, I could go on and on. But after it's all edited down and in it's proper place, surprisingly I find I have more room for the people and things that I love. it's taking stock of what's occupying my mental, physical, and spiritual real estate and evaluating if it's going to bear any good fruit in my life. If it's not, then it's time to pare down and make a change and let go of the things that don't add value and instead breathe new life into dormant areas of interest. In the end the practice of simplicity helps to bring more clarity, focus, passion and beauty back into my life. It's a great reminder with New Year's just around the corner, let's move from making temporary resolutions into a lifestyle, a way of being.


John 15:2 (NKJV)

2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
