“Life is actually quite simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” ~Confucius
Human beings have a knack for crafting lives of infinite complexity.
For starters, we shame ourselves if we’re not always “busy” or available on demand. We overburden our schedules with more commitments than we can easily manage, and consequently create more drama, more problems, than we can aptly resolve. Then we spend hours responding to hundreds of virtual strangers on social media platforms — and wonder why we don’t have a spare moment to gather with real friends for coffee.
This year, why not aim for pure-and-simple choices in every aspect of life, from household chores to social connections? Isn’t it a relief, just to think about it? ~CL
