“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” ~Hans Hofmann
.
I have been allowing this Hans Hofman quote to guide me this week. Simplify was my guiding word a few years back and although I have gotten MUCH better at simplifying I find it’s an ongoing process. ⠀
.
To simplify you must step back from all the “stuff” & the noise of life on a regular basis to evaluate what’s most important in the PRESENT MOMENT and releasing what isn’t. The key for me was a subtle shift in asking myself whether something is serving me in the present moment as I found I was saving things for “someday” or putting them in the “what if I need this” box. This week I did some serious pruning to make way for new growth. It felt SO good! 🙂

What have you let go of in order to make room for something better in your life?
