I'm setting some goals for 2009 and simplifying is one of them.
I just read this quote today from Sister Hinckley and l♥ve it...

"The grand and the simple. They are equally wonderful. We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.” ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

That is always a great word to live by. And Majorie was always so wise.

I would add to that that we as women can do so much more when we simplify our lives. This goal is so worth achieving.

Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest things to accomplish.

Good luck with your goals.

yes! It must be the spirit prompting us all to start feeling that exact same thing, which is that simple IS desireable. Hopefully this will make for a really good 2009. (Although, simple can often be illusive. I truly admire people who actually CAN do simple. There is an art to it.)

Simplicity is one of the keys to happiness in this life and I'm doing the same thing in 2009...decluttering and streamlining everything in the house...Yikes...better get busy...it will probably take me all of 2009 to reach that goal !
