Live Simply

SIMPLY: without ambiguity, clearly

Simplicity is a principle as well as a practice.

As a principle, simplicity is something that is foundational to our lives—a core value from which we build our lives. When our aim is to live simply, truth becomes our guide. We tap into our personal truth with questions like “What is true for me?”, “What is true about my life?”, “What do I value most in my life?”, “What is best for my life?”, “What matter most in my life?”. 

As a practice, simplicity is an ongoing process of intentionally managing your life—staying focused, planning, organizing, and clearing clutter. 

Living simply is not about living without. It’s about living with intention from the inside out. Take the first step, clarify what is most important to you and why and begin to prioritize it in your life.

Clarify what is most important to you and why

why

The next time you find yourself looking for a reason (or excuse 🙂 ) as to why you haven’t started, completed, or followed through on something, take a step back and ask yourself if it is really important to you. If the answer is yes, spend some time exploring why it is important.

Knowing why something is important to you will enable you to root your commitments in your heart and a true desire to bring them to life. When you ask yourself why something is important, you are tapping into your personal values. 

Your values are always at work in your life whether you are fully aware of them or not. Becoming aware of them and using them as a guide can truly change your life. If you haven’t taken the time to clarify your values/what is most important to you in writing, I encourage you to make it a priority. 

We are likely to struggle to keep commitments when they are not clearly connected to personal values. When this happens, commitments tend to be rooted in fear and obligation rather than heartfelt desire.

Today is a great day to evaluate your commitments to ensure they are in alignment with your values and goals. If not, give yourself permission to make changes or let them go.

Clarify what is most important to you and why. It will help you manifest what you truly desire.

Focus on what truly matters

What we choose to focus on magnifies in our lives. Here are a few strategies that can help you stay focused on what truly matters and create the life that you desire.

Capture what is most important to you in writing

Writing things down can help you clear your mind, organize your thoughts and, ultimately, organize your life. Make a commitment to capture what is most important to you in writing – your values, vision, goals, commitments, etc.

Clarify your personal values

Values are qualities/principles that are most important to you. Your values are the foundation for your life. They inform your life choices and help you set priorities for your life. Take time to clarify your personal values and put them into action.

Create a vision for your life

A vision is a desired future state. Give yourself permission to dream BIG. Create a detailed vision of what you desire for your life and create a plan of action to bring it to life. You may find my post on vision boards helpful. Click here to read the vision board post.

Create awareness of how you are spending your time, energy, and money

Keep track of how you are spending your time, energy, and money (in writing) on a daily basis for the next seven days. It will help you see the degree to which you are (or aren’t) focused on what truly matters. This exercise is seriously eye opening!
