Beauty in Simplicity.

Hi y’all!

I haven’t been very active on blogosphere in the past couple of weeks, since I’m having a hectic time with college stuff. Pffft! But at least found some time to write about something simple yet interesting. As I’m finding it hard to find any time to write these days, this is what I’ve come up with.

My blog at least has a recent post on it, isn’t that nice! ๐Ÿ˜€

โ€˜There is beauty in simplicity.โ€™ The first time I heard this phrase, I probably brushed it off, as a group of words that someone thought sounded good together. With the passing years, I have come to appreciate how the word simplicity goes hand in hand with perfection. It actually makes me live and enjoy every single moment in life.

Well, the beauty actually lies in simplicity. It could be our way of life or ideas and language or expressions or the way we present ourselves. Alternatively, it could be a way of bringing out the best and the truth from a subject whilst only showing what is essential.

One of my favorite quotes is by Antoine de Saint-Exupรฉry, โ€œPerfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.โ€

Probably for many like me, simplicity is an essential quality. It is a quality that one inherits from within and people who normally focus on the superficial things. They may always question the reason and the very meaning of being simple.

Simplicity shows how beautiful and elegant things are when they are not lost in the detail. I am a person very often attracted to simple and quiet scenes. They capture my attention easily because I believe those things are so close to a meaningful and happy life.

A lifestyle that brings the beauty in simplicity offers numerous benefits for your overall health, happiness, and life enjoyment. Following a simplified way of being makes you content with what you have.

It makes us appreciate the small joys in life, and to find enjoyment in the present moment. This unlocks a wonderful and plenty of happiness in our life. Not just that. We often complicate our lives with our jobs, relationships, to do lists, and negative thoughts. We expend energy on mental chatter that involves stressing, dreading, hating, and criticizing others and ourselves as well. Instead, by following a simple life and spending our resources on experiences that fuel our soul and bring happiness and meaning to our life makes us less stressed about life. Donโ€™t you agree?

Simplify your life by not simplifying it all. Learn to live an independent life so that you depend only on yourself. Take time for simple pleasures as the beauty lies in the details. Simple things, like the little things are sometimes the most important and beautiful things. Don’t miss them.

Coming to the end, I’ll like to add another favorite quote of mine, by Sir Joshua Reynolds and I cannot think of a better conclusion than this, โ€œSimplicity is an exact medium between too little and too much.โ€
