Just Simple Pleasures for Today

        All too often, we get caught up in the fancy-schmancy way of it all that only pushes us to ask, “Why is everything so hard?” Adults can make things complicated, seem out of touch, or just plain ole preposterous. Then, there is the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) response when asking how to do a certain procedure if you overthink things.

        For today, keep things simple, whether you’re cooking, cleaning, or working. Make it simple as you gain a sense of clarity that makes you wonder why you haven’t seen things, situations or people clearly before now. You’ll be amazed by how much you notice, appreciate, and marvel. Take it easy and enjoy the simple pleasures of life with gratitude.

  4. Oh my goodness Phil, I can’t thank you enough my friend for encouraging me in return. 😥 I am teary-eyed, in a really good way of course, for such a heartwarming response –

    From a fountain that flows
    Streaming words which are wise
    Her heartfelt reflections
    Penned with love, no surprise

  8. I’m so sorry, Kym. I think I might be getting shadow banned somewhere. A few other bloggers have told me the same. Evidently, I pissed somebody at WordPress headquarters off…BIGLY!

  13. I love this message, dear Kym. It is one we need to hear and read often. As humans, we are famous for over complicating things, even when the simplest way forward is usually the best way forward. Oh, thank you for this reminder, my kindred! Have a fantastic week! 🌹🌺❤️🥰🦋💖💞😘

  14. This is a beautifully Zen post! Just the simple act of cleaning the toilet can be a Zen experience when we take it slow and easy, attach no significance to it, and use those moments to clear our minds of all worry, care, and stress. And, I agree, Phil’s poem is a beautiful response! Have a wonderful, carefree day, dear Kym!

  16. I appreciate you Jeff. I think this was a reminder for myself. LOL 😜🙄😆 Why do we need to make things complicated, well that is the great million-dollar human mystery. Geez! “Just chill” is what I have to remember. It ain’t that deep! 😲 Have a FANtabulous day my dear kindred! 🌞✨😉💖😘🌺😍🎭🥰🥂

  17. Thanks a million for your thoughtful and kind comment Helen. 😊 Sometimes if we simply remember to keep it “simple,” especially as adults, we may not need a lot of medication to reduce stress and depression. 😲😣🙄 Just a thought. Have a wonderful day! 😘💖😉

  18. Dawn, you warm my heart my sweet friend, and I thank you so much for your introspect. 🤗🙏🏼😍 Sometimes in my frustration, I have to take a step back and see my silliness in getting frustrated in the first place, for no valid reason. I truly appreciate you my friend. We have to learn to free our minds…often! LOL 😜😆😁 I love your “cleaning the toilet” analogy! I will certainly remember that one the next time I clean the “reading room.” 😲 Have an awe-inspiring day sweetie pie! Hugs and smooches! 😘💋🥰

  20. Cindy girlfriend, I love it! 😍💖🥰 I have a relative who came to my house and said she like my minimalist look (meaning I didn’t have a lot of stuff overcrowding my space), which coming from her was throwing shade at my decorating. 🙄 When I visit her house which isn’t often, I feel claustrophobic because every crack and crevice is filled with an overwhelming amount of tchotchkes. 😱 Lord, have mercy! Girl, just trying to simplify my life…again…and again…and again! LOL 😆😂😲😝🤣
