I think, what most people dream of, is simplicity. I mean, if they say they’re too busy, or too tired, or too..anything, what they need is a simple solution to those problems. They won’t go for the complicated route to achieve something.
So yeah, simplicity, is good. But in Charlie Chaplin’s words:
Simplicity is not a simple thing.
Indeed, it is not.
But I have come to see that to achieve simplicity, one needs to open one’s eyes. It’s that simple. Once you see what you have, once you see what you can do, and once you see deep inside yourself, you’ll be able to figure out what it is that you long for.
What it is that you need, versus what it is that you want.
What it is that you have, versus what it is that you dream to have.
What it is that you feel angry about, versus what it is that you love.
What it is that you really, really, want, above all else, instead of following the norms.
I’ve come to learn that my life is so simple.
I’ve come to a point where I couldn’t utter anything else besides ‘I love you‘ to this one specific person because yeah, I do.
I’ve come to a point where I could say no to the thing I don’t need and focus on the thing that I want to achieve and indeed want.
I’ve come to a point where I do know how I want to leave my mark in this world.
I’ve come to a point where I can see clearly what I long for.
As cheesy as all these sound.
So once you shredded all the complicated things surrounding the surface, it’s…easier. Not that it’s gonna be easy, no.
