Life Is Simple If We Don’t Make It Complicated

When uncertainties abound, when opportunities are getting scarce, when choices made are becoming much more complex and critical, and when immediate decision is imminent, we tend to become very upset, not knowing what to do. We walk blindly and aimlessly. We refuse to sit down and are unable to pause to reflect.

Many of us are content and satisfied with our lives. We don’t want to change. In fact, we are opposed to changes that would disrupt our lives.

But there will be times when these happen. There will be times when things happen and make life complicated. There will be times when problems at hand are not easy to overcome. When that happens, what would you do?

It is time to speak to family and friends. We can analyze the problems together. We can go for a walk or a meal, have some jokes or fun, or play some games, trying everything possible to bring things down for a while.

We can try to sit down, write down everything, and analyze the problems slowly and carefully on our own. Then we plan out what we can do and desire to do. It will not be easy, but it becomes easier and simpler with practice and experience.

Not every problem can be settled on our own or with the help and support from family and friends. Certain problems take time and effort, and can be with us for some times.

But we can always commit problems that we cannot solve to the Almighty God. We can tell Him everything, including our personal decisions and the opinions, guides and tips that we have obtained from our family and friends.

Life is simple if we know that we are not alone.

Life is simple if we know that our family and friends are around to help us.

Life is simple if we know that the Lord God is right here beside us to help us.

Life is simple if we don’t make it complicated.

Life becomes complicated because we tend to run after what the world has to offer. Apostle Paul said that if we have food and clothing we can be content with that. But that is too simplistic for our material world now. I'm not saying that we should not use the technologies and things available to us now, but we have to see to it that we are not becoming covetous for these things. Godliness with contentment is still the key.

The hunger of man to want more is inevitable. It is already our nature to want more. I salute to people who can really stand alone and make hard decisions and also to the people who are brave enough to admit that they're not strong enough to handle it on their own.

You know what they say, Two or more heads is better than one

If we can understand that simple life is beautiful, we will easily break away from greed, as well as sharing in the suffering of others. So, someone who used to live lavish, and make more beautiful of your life with simplicity.

Live life as simple as it is. We need a constant reminder of this every now and then.
