Simple doesn’t always mean easy.

Sometimes doing the simple thing isn’t the same as doing the easy thing. Know what I mean?

Last week I had the chance to share a guest post over on Simple Mom–The road to simplicity is marked by complexity. But it’s still worth it.

From my post:

“With all the talk about simplicity these days, you’d think that the route getting there would be, well, simple. But many find that with each step they take toward simplicity, they encounter temporary complications.

These complications sometimes feel so vast they make you want to quit before you’ve even started. Switching gears in life can be painful, and progress isn’t always initially visible.

I am a mother of three children, a homeschooler, a blogger and an author. Each day I spend the majority of my time on areas of my core values and priorities, crafting the life of my dreams. Yet getting here has required navigating through obstacles and complexities.”
