Life is simple.Tweet It!
It sounds obvious, but often it feels impossible.
What is it about life that makes it feel so complicated?
Is it our jobs? Our families? Our bills? Our past relationships or the future ones we are waiting for?
Probably, it’s the intertwining chaos of each of these (and more) elements as they intersect in our lives every day.
But there is a hack.
Take a step back.
Take a step back and remember that life is nothing more than a constant stream of moments.
If you live to your hundreds, your journey through life is made up of about 38 million of them.
Philosopher and writer Alan Watts (one of my faves!) said:
“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.“
Don’t worry about having a great life.
Just focus on being grateful for this very minute.
There will undoubtedly be challenges along the way. But if you find ways to appreciate where you are now, you might start to feel that life is indeed simple.
