simplify

The last couple years have been barreling down a track that seems to be getting smaller and smaller while my caboose is overflowing.

I gotta get off the crazy train!

Simplify?

Oh I am SO there. Time to re-learn how to pronounce the word NO. Extras, work, friends, church, school, even children and family need to get a priority check at some point. I don’t even know what order any of that should come in these days. And that’s kinda sad?

I read a [virtual] friend’s blog on what meekness really is. I was surprised to come away understanding that it’s not about giving in or becoming powerless. What’s the opposite of meek? PRIDE. Vanity. What a new thought! Embracing my inner meek seems impossible, but losing a little pride, vanity? Totally doable. The part where it mentioned a meek person listens more than talks? Yeah…I’m working on that.

So do I have to enjoy the mundane to enjoy the journey? Cuz. Not. Gonna. Happen.

Maybe I just need to tolerate the routine better?
