Step 1 to Simplicity

I often hear the comment, “why does everything have to be so difficult?”.

Is life really that difficult? Or do we make it that difficult.

The fact is, life is what we make it. The outcome is a result of our beliefs, our attitudes and our choices. Do you make it difficult, or do you make it simple?

The key to simplicity is to not have expectations. When we ‘expect’ someone to act a certain way and they don’t, we get upset. But we’re not as upset over their actions, as we are from the perception that they let us down, according to our expectations. If we never had those expectations in the first place, they couldn’t let us down.

Go with the flow, be open to possibilities, and enjoy the simplicity life has to offer.
