This image seems appropos for today. It was a collaborative effort between my granddaughter and I as we tried to figure out a new iPhone app. Turns out it’s so simple. I have a tendency to make thing far more complicated than need be, and sometimes I just need to be reminded to slow down and be patient, with myself as well as with others. To let go of my need to know everything, to control how things work out. I have to remind myself that things will work out as they ought to no matter what I do. I forget that sometimes.
This livesaving experiment is certainly revelatory to me. I can quite easily forget I’m even doing it, except I don’t quite. Old habits are hard to shake, is all I have to say. I have heard it said that it takes three weeks to change a habit. So do you think you can change a whole bunch of them in three weeks, or do they need three weeks each? If so I’ll have ’em lined up past Halloween. Which is actually just fine. Better that than not cleaning anything up.
I hope your life is clear and simple and that it makes you happy. Seems like a good thing to strive for.
