I'm still trying to focus on and apply to my life this year's "one little work".

Something I've realized is that no one can really SIMPLIFY their life until they've learned to be content with what their life is.  Then they need to work within that contentment to weed out what isn't necessary. Maybe finding a more simple life in the process.
"...I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.  I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength.'
Philippians 4:11-13 
Thank you Regina for my new SIMPLIFY picture. I love it!

I recently went through my studio, weeding out what I really didn't need. Thought it would be hard, but I was in a place where "Simplify" was just what I needed. Wise concept, isn't it?

I plan on getting to the simplify part just as soon as I can get myself to the energize
