::inspiration::simplicity::


If it was socially acceptable, this is how I would roll every single day.

White, long-sleeved t-shirt, scarf, denim/corduroy skirt [minus the glasses and the pony] plus a to-go cup of mint tea from Uptown Cafe.

Every single day.

One of the most common mis-perceptions of me is that I have a huge closet filled with tons of clothes, which to me is mildly amusing.

I like [crave, need] simplicity.

New Year's goals have already been on my mind. Have they been on yours? So it got me thinking....why in the world do we wait until January 1st to implement new habits or goals? Why not get a jump-start? Not a full-fledged pledge on December 15th but dipping a toe into the proverbial water of change.

The word more typically does not mean to simplify.

But if I said more simplicity, more contentment, more Jesus, more Holy Spirit obedience, all of a sudden, more of one thing means a whole lot less of another.

I think my word for 2012 is going to be more.  More simplicity and a whole lot less fluff.

Oh, count me in!!! I am totally going for MORE simplicity in my life too. I SO MUCH want to have more time for the people that are important to me, and the only way to do that is to purge more clutter (which I'm already working on, too)!

Great thought.

Less is more! Less of me, more of Him!
