Simplicity

Simplicity

There is something to K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, silly).  I don’t know why we humans want to make things more complicated than they are, but we do.  It seems to me that we would benefit significantly if we ‘simply’ got out of our own way…I remember years ago I attended a seminar and one of the presenters said, “life is basically empty and meaningless.”  For a minute, I was taken back by this comment, and then I thought more about the wisdom in those words.

Keep It Simple

It is so true…our lives have and hold only the meaning that we give to them.  And, the amazing thing is, we get to choose the definition that we give to the events in our lives.  So my friends, keep it simple.  Check in with your heart and get out of your head.  Put one foot in front of the other and step through your days with presence and intention and openness and passion and curiosity.  Consider simple over complicated…joy over angst…love over fear.  And no matter what, be grateful. Stay true and be you —

Day 31: Create A Life You Love

A Great Read

A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love.

Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them-in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul-they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman’s love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end, it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival.

A stunning accomplishment, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love.
