Cluttered. Dirty dishes. Bills. Repairs. To-do list. Do you feel any anxiety yet?
Surely, we’ve all had moments where different things or tasks are staring us down and we feel the weight of it all on our shoulders. Even littlest things tend to pile up and take over our day. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just simplify?
It’s not as distant as it may seem amidst the busyness of our lives. It takes intention and commitment to achieve, but it is well worth it. First of all, it’s necessary to slow down! Clarity comes when we clear our thoughts, minds, and schedules. No good and wise decision is ever made when we are distracted and preoccupied. We must take action to declutter mentally and physically, and that means learning to say no and letting go of the little things that really don’t contribute to our success!
Simplifying our lives will lead to a higher level of accomplishment in every aspect. Multitasking may sound like we’re going to get more done in less time, but in reality it is the antagonist of focus. Tackle one thing before moving on, and give it all you’ve got! This will not only help us attain goals and follow through on tasks, but will also help us develop and strengthen our relationship with God and others. Any healthy relationship requires care and awareness! Most importantly, we’ll be able to give God all of our attention when we spend time with Him, thus allowing Him to reveal Himself to us in deeper ways!
Simplicity has a chain reaction in our lives that leads to a more productive, positive, and peaceful version of ourselves. We will never regret striving for it, and we will become more of who God intended us to be as a result.
“We can say with confidence and a clear conscience that we have lived with a God-given holiness and sincerity in all our dealings. We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom.” 1 Corinthians 1:12
