This little season of life is teaching me a lot. Keeping life simple is one of the main lessons I am learning. In that I am reminded how simple it is to do right, act right and think right. It cuts out so much drama. Focusing our energy on what really matters and making the best of those things is the key to happiness, I think.

I feel I am more sensitive to others now. For that I feel blessed and cursed! I find myself saddened for those who choose to make life harder than it has to be. It has made me so much more aware of how often I have failed, and still fall into that trap of life. We are all sinners and fall short of the extravagant glory of God, no doubt. I just want to make it a point to keep it simple and do right. I think it is so much harder to stay in the grey and black areas of life and make life more complicated than it has to be. I am no perfect girl, and no one to model after, but I hope my quest for simplicity and purpose can be an example for someone else who is tired of being weighed down by the unnecessary baggage of life. I will fail at this time and time again, yet I will be more aware and hopefully pick myself up and try again.

I know this seems a bit deep for a Hump Day post and maybe a bit “preachy”, but I have encountered so many hurting people lately and most of their hurt stems from not keeping life simple. I am not trying to sound “preachy”, just a gal who has a heavy heart about the matter. I get sad about it because it is so easy to do what is right, but I also want to shake them and scream, “Come on…life is not this hard, people!” You know someone like this, I am sure. We all do. In fact, many of us are those people, or have been those people. Let’s make a point to pray for them, and ourselves to keep life simple and fun…it is more fun to “KISS” (Keep It Simple Stupid)!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
