Engaging Each Day with Action Words

Complicate. — Thanks a Lot Windows 8.1

on November 18, 2013

When I was a kid … and sleepover-slumber-party-try-to-meet-up-and-play-together plans with my friends were getting out of hand, I remember my Mom would always say,

“When it is this complicated, it’s not meant to be.”

Ugh. I hated to hear that. Because it meant that I wasn’t going to be able to do the thing that would totally be a ton of fun if only the 17 steps worked out just perfectly.

And because it meant that she was right.

When things are unnecessarily overwhelming,

maybe it is not meant to be.

Like tonight. I am tired. It is 11:05 p.m. I just had to restart my computer because it selfishly wanted to get the new Windows 8.1 update which was promised to take only a few minutes and I could keep working. But in reality, it took what felt like 17 years and now my eyes are too tired for me to write anything.

Like the holidays. Work schedules and travel plans and photo opps and seating placement and hotel reservations and dinner menus and shopping lists.

When things get complicated, we may just need to simplify.

Let’s all, Go. Do that.
