My word for 2018 is simplify.
Because honestly, you guys, I need a whole lot of simplifying in my life.
I over complicate everything. And I know, I know. Everyone says that, right? But no, I really do.
The other night, Mr. T and I were starting a good jar. You know, one of those things where you write something good and put it in a jar and the read all of the things at the end of the year? Aww, that's sweet right?
Well, I kid you not. It took us more than 30 minutes to just get the damn thing started. Why? BECAUSE I OVER COMPLICATED IT. And we also ended up in a fight.
I over complicate eating, cleaning, and my shop. I over complicate my schedule. I over complicate having fun. I over complicate showering and going to the bathroom. I over complicate over complicating.
I like that I can think critically about things and analyze things. It's super helpful in a number of situations. But for the love of everything, some things can and should just be simple.
So this year I decided enough is enough.
Every day I remind myself to simplify. I write it in my planner. And, I mean, I'm not saying I'm cured or anything (obviously not since two nights ago Mr. T and I fought because I was over complicating stuff), but I do think it's helping and I feel like I could maybe possibly be tiny bit better by 2019.
What's your word for the year.
