Keep It Simple

We were nestled in the back country over the Easter break with a small cabin, hearty fireplace, and a balcony which offered a view of the world.  On Saturday I took advantage of the warm sun and rented snow shoes for a rendezvous with nature.

“What trail is the best to do?”

“Trail? Just go out to the middle of the lake.”

“Well, is there a trail?”

“Yes. But you should just stay on the lake.”

“You need to avoid the avalanche run-off and the other trail is icy.”

“The lake is the perfect condition for snowshoeing and it’s beautiful. Keep it simple!”

I slid on my snow shoes and listened to the crackle of snow beneath my feet.  It felt like the perfect morning  as I wandered out to the middle of the lake admiring the spectacular views.

I was alone in the silence there was no chatter in my head, no noise coming from behind, just the sound of the birds in the trees as the warm sun began to beat down on my face.  It was by keeping it simple, avoiding the ice, that I was able to enjoy such a peaceful experience. Sometimes the least resistance can be the best path to take on the unknown journey.

How do you keep it simple?

  1. I wish that I had an answer to your question. In theory I want to keep it simple, but when push comes to shove most things that I do require complexity. Nuanced thinking. Reserved behavior. My life.

  2. Darcie, that is spectacular. I wish I could’ve been right there with you.

    I try to keep drama out of my life–which means keeping my distance from some people…… 🙂

  3. Well, for the moment, Darcie, it is very difficult for me to keep my life simple. Sometimes it feels more like a circus. lol! I love my family, and I will always try to keep them first in my life, and they are the ones that keep me hopping…sometimes for the good and sometimes just a little bit more than I can handle. 🙂

    But I LOVE, love this post AND picture. It feels so serene. Ahhh!

  4. what a beautiful moment and yes, it looks very peaceful. the easiest way to keep things simple is knowing financially my funds are limited but i can be super rich spiritually and mentally with meditation and abundant reading material. ♥

    1. It was very peaceful with the exception of the avalanche rumblings in the distance. I have to agree you can be super rich and never happy with anything. The real richness comes from how you mend your heart and nurture your soul.
