I am the queen of complex.

I think deeply about many things and sometimes situations are just complex and no amount of thinking, worrying, praying, scheming, plotting, helping, changing is going to clarify the situation.

Sometimes life is complex and allowing ourselves to accept what we cannot change and what we are not given permission to is okay.

That’s where simple comes in.

Sometimes letting go means accepting that people and life can be strange.

Strange is not great it’s not bad it just is.

Help me find simple in the midst of crazy.

Simple is found when we follow this prayer I believe…

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

–Reinhold Niebuhr


Not exactly

But it does bring about a sense of peace in the midst of times that are increasingly complex.

I long for simplicity.

Sometimes though it’s my choices and my responses to situations that bring this longing about.
