Overcomplicating situations will lead to stress. It’s time to make a goal to simplify your life. There are always things that just get messy and complicated, I’m dealing with a lot of that right now, however, I am simplifying what I can control. I can control my schedule, I don’t have to fill everyday full of activities that keep me so busy I cannot even think straight.

There was certainly a time when I did not realize that. A few years ago, I would teach 8 workshops or so a month on top working every single day and taking care of my kids. I thought my schedule was going to kill me.

One night, I walked into my house late after teaching a workshop and literally passed out and fell to the floor. It finally dawned on me that no one else was going to simplify my schedule, no one else was going to manage my time, I had to do it.

It’s taken years for me to realize that I cannot say “yes” to everything and still keep peace. It also has taken a long time for me to be able to say “no” to people. People (generally speaking) do not like it when you don’t do what they tell you to do when they tell you to do it. I figured that out quick. In fact, when I started saying “no” to things, my life actually got really complicated for a little while. There were people around me that just didn’t like it.

Now, I’m making the decisions and I’m choosing to live a more simple life. My body just cannot handle it any other way.

Sometimes complications find you, sometimes there are things you cannot control. I’m going to challenge you, examine your life and find out if there are things you are doing right now that you just need to let go.

Losing your peace (and your mind) just to try and please other people is not worth it.

Live a simple life and not only will you have less stress but you’ll even start to enjoy the life God has planned for you.
