Although we attempt to make it complex, the essence of life is simplicity.

Being a good parent to your children, having loving relationships with your partner, being of service to others- these are the fundamental requirements that nurture the human spirit.

Too often, however, we get lost in the hectic pace of modern life and lose touch with our true priorities.

Look at your own life.

Has it become overly complex?

Have you found yourself burdened by too many responsibilities?

Think how little it takes to life up your spirits- a smile from a child, an unexpected tweet of gratitude, The sun shinning right after a whole week of gray weather.

As you learn to simplify your life, you will experience a freedom and  lightness of burden. These priceless gifts are yours when you learn to focus on what is truly essential.
