‘Tis a gift to be simple. So true. So often ignored. It is a gift because simplicity opens space in the webs of our inner and outer worlds. Space for wonder, for pleasure, for amusement, for contentment, for relief, for gratitude and all the other feelings that make up the emotional expanse of joy. Slowing down – our pace, our consumption, our output – helps create the space and fuel needed for joy to be felt, and for joy to be sustained as a way of being.
