She taught me to be less hard on myself.
I have been known to procrastinate, especially when it comes to my least favorite job in the office – filing. I felt I needed to have everything perfect in my office, until I read her post in which she says, procrastination gets a bad rap. She went on to explain:
By delaying action, we give ourselves a chance to change our minds, analyze situations, receive updated data, and put things in perspective. For unnecessary or dramatic, life-altering circumstances, this can be a good thing.
We have all read how simplicity is defined as living with less material things in our lives, and while that is true to a certain degree, in her post titled: Am I Just Faking It?, she writes:
….. simplicity isn’t just about cutting stuff out of your life. It’s about stripping life down to the bare essentials, throwing out all assumptions, and rebuilding the world around you to fit the dream you have, not the one you’re told to want or raised to believe in. After all, life should be rich. It just doesn’t have to be rich in money, or stuff, or accolades.
That statement speaks volumes, and verifies that less is more in all aspects of our lives.

It was in the comment section of JEMi’s “In My Heels” where I found this blog.
