Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

Thursday Thoughts

(Please feel free to use this button!)

Since Thursday Thoughts was not well-received, this will be the last week for it. Thanks to those who participated. I will no longer be doing a weekly meme of any sort after this one. 

All you have to do to join in each week is to write a blog post about that this week’s word.  Come back here on Thursday (like today!) and enter your blog address into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!

I try to enjoy the simple things in life. As I was driving home from my acupuncture appointment today, I was marveling at the awe-inspiring snow-capped mountains that surrounded me. I’ve been admiring the gorgeous changing leaves on the trees and enjoying the change of the seasons.

But I struggle with simplicity in my home. I feel like we have too much stuff and it’s hard to part with it. It’s even harder when with a husband who comes from a family of near-hoarders. I would like to get back to a place where I just have what I need and no more. I want to enjoy the simple things.

A cup of hot chocolate. I don’t need a Keurig.

A good book. I don’t need a Reader.

Spending time with my husband. We don’t need to spend money to do that.

What does simplicity mean to you?
