Rounding out this weeks’ posts about community, I wanted to share something that has changed my life forever. Something easy but yet difficult and something extremely important.
I was once again reminded of this the other day from my community.
Its the #1 way to find clarity in your life.
Keep It Simple.
I’ve heard other versions, where by some people add a (Stupid) to the end and then use the handy acronym of KISS to sell it, but I can’t afford to pay Gene Simmons, and if indeed the idea is to Keep It Simple, then that last part is superfluous.
And I know all about superflous things, because I used to be in a band called that.
And we rocked.
But seriously though, every time I start trending towards the 8 yr old version of myself, all full of drama, I’m reminded of this and take a step back.
This reminds me of how I’m called to live, careless in the care of God.
I’ve began, over time, to understand just how much freedom and peace there is from adopting this, and integrating in my life.
Then comes the magic.
Margin. Clarity. Sobriety.
The things that start to become so clear and easy to see, were the very same things I couldn’t quite figure out before.
Do you need to remind yourself as you enter this weekend to keep it simple? Can you see how this could be the step, you’ve been missing? And that on the other side, is the peace you’ve been longing for?
