The Joy of Simplicity - Life as Mrs. Wilson

The Joy of Simplicity


For what it's worth:

Your days don't have to be filled with extravagance to be considered great. 

I used to spend a lot of time wishing my life was more exciting, or more adventure-filled, or really just a whole lot more. I wasn't a fan of quiet, and I wasn't keen on the idea of living a "simple life." 

My view has since changed, and I'm so glad it has.

I spent my day stacking blocks with my one year old, going on a family walk, and had lots of sick baby snuggles in between (croup - it's tough). But yet, here I am at the end of the day with a heart completely filled with joy.

You see, simple isn't always bad. In fact, since I made the decision to embrace simplicity, I've never been more at ease and more happy with my life. 

And I guess the point of me sitting here writing this is to say that you don't need more of anything to find joy. Joy doesn't have to come from exotic vacations or adventure filled weekends. Even the simplest of days can bring the greatest joy. 

My day started simple, and it's ending simple. I write with music softly playing as I listen to my husband reading our son a bedtime story in the other room. It's simple, and it's calm, and it's even better than that action-packed life I thought I wanted all those years ago.
