This morning, I got to thinking about how wonderful simplicity can be. I was picking through the fridge and pantry for some breakfast, trying to decide what I felt in the mood for. As you know, I've been eating oat bran berry crumble daily and so I had planned on enjoy another crumble this morning. Except I just didn't want it today. Apparently I was all crumble-d out. I wasn't even hungry, and was all set to have a boring bowl of cereal just to get something in my belly. The eating disordered side of me protested: You can't just sacrifice a meal and eat something you don't really want! If that is the case, why eat at all?
Thankfully, sanity (or God?) stepped in. It's just food, said Sane Me. Put gas in the tank and get going on the day! So I did. I crunched down an apple, then enjoy a small bowl of 2% cottage cheese. And let me tell you -- that breakfast was glorious. Sure, it wasn't complicated, and it wasn't fancy, and it sure was no crumble, but it was good. It satisfied and it fueled me. It was actually incredibly delicious. Isn't there some famous quote about simplicity?
(Henry David Thoreau)
How do you simplify life in this very complicated world?
