Keeping it Simple

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Clare Boothe Luce

If you’re subscribed to this blog, you may have noticed a slight uptick in the frequency of entries I’ve been posting lately. Ok, maybe “slight” is not the most accurate word to use. It would probably be better to use “significant” or “major.” But that’s not really my point.

My point is to say that, yes, I am posting more frequently. And the reason for that is simple. I’ve simplified my online life and brought all – with the exception of one – of the sites I’ve been trying to juggle over the last few years into this one, simple blog.

Was that the right decision to make? I have no idea. All I can say is that it is the right decision for right now which is all I really need to be concerned about. Because the truth is that I crave simplicity. And efficiency. I also crave Dr. Pepper, but I’m trying to kick that particular craving. The other two, though, notsomuch.

Instead, I’m embracing them.

I am one person who has many interests. Three of which happen to be writing, photography and personal finance. And for the last few years, I’ve separated those three things. Compartmentalized them. Treated them independently of each other. And I have felt stuck and confused and stretched and incomplete as I’ve tried to split my time focusing on each of them individually.

So now, I’m just going to focus on how each of those interests (and any others) make up the complete me. And I hope that, in doing so, I can then reflect the glory of God through them.
