Welcome Simplicity! Bye Bye Complexity!

The year 2013 is here. One of my friends asked me what my new year resolution is.

My spontaneous reaction was, as in many previous years to start talking about all the things I would want to start doing. But before I could say these words, I realized that nothing has stopped me before from doing these things. I questioned myself, then, why couldn’t I do these things in 2012. Was anything wrong with 2012? NO was the answer. As a working mother of three small kids, I know I have my constraints and challenges. All of a sudden, because 2013 is here, my constraints and challenges are not going to go away. Why should I add the burden of New Year Resolutions to my already strained mind and body.

Then, should I give up on my goals? NO is the answer. I will still pursue my goals. But not as goals, only as dreams and visions. I am going to include one small action to be taken everyday into my schedule. Work through it. Once I am comfortable with this new schedule, add one small action into the schedule. Take time to get comfortable with it.

This way, I want to rid my life of stress and complexity. Welcome simplicity and serenity. Be more gentle and kind to myself. Thereby, being gentle and kind to my kids, my family and to the people around in my world.

Stop Obsessing about Looks and Wasting time in the process

I just heard my neighbor saying that she joined gym to improve on her looks. I was dumbfounded. If she joins gym for health reasons, very well, good for her. But for improving her looks? I think she looks great, what does she want to change now?

Why are people so obsessed to change the way they look these days? Yes, it should be our goal to lead a healthy and beautiful life. But not upping the meaning of beautiful everyday and feeling miserable about it. Our life is meant to be beautiful and happy. Let us experience the happiness every moment of everyday in our life. Let us keep our life simple. How much time are we wasting in our life feeling bad about our looks or what we need to change.

Tips:

  • Identify the areas of your life/beauty that you want to improve(if it is really required)
  • Identify the routines we need to do on an everyday basis to reach these beauty goals.
  • Include these routines in your everyday schedule and follow them
  • Forget about it. If you are doing all that is required, why should you bother thinking about it again.
  • Be Happy which is the natural state of Being.

This way, you are moreĀ  likely to follow the routines, and see good results. Good Luck!

Say welcome to Simplicity!
