I cannot wait for the simplification of my life when summer comes along and sweeps me back up like an old friend. I want the heat to make me curse and sweat and groan. I want to feel the A/C in my best friends car while we cruise down the street like old times, all of us, the whole group. Bring me back the simplicity of last summer when we played in the water and ran down the alleyways together. There wasn’t any judgment, wasn’t any pressure or expectations. Just us together, the sweltering heat prompting us to go insane and laugh tremendously with each other. To walk barefoot in the grass to coffee shops and take spontaneous trips to adventure landing, celebration park, relay races and surprise hawaiian rave Elvis birthday parties. I want to simply hold my sisters hand after a long workout and take a dip in the pool afterwards. After exams, essays, text books, school fights, friendships falling apart faster than stale bread crumbs, I’m just searching for the simplicity I fell in love with last summer.

To simplify is to take something more and make it less. It is to create utter perfection with a smaller amount of matter than was originally necessary. For example. I could have just told you that simplicity is a beautiful thing.

to simplify one’s life is to simply…
fizz out into nothing.
to extract a small sample
of the life of the soul.
who is to say that your life is to complex?
too rough around the edges?
and yet just filled to the top of the glass…
who just doesn’t get you?
who you are is nothing more than a few grains to simplify..

I wish I could simplify this world. Instead of all the complexity, instead of all the smoke and mirrors, we would see things for the true picture. Girls, in the photos, would be simply naked. That’s what people want? Stop kidding yourselves. You want all the way, don’t you?
But if there were no creative stories, with all the thick details, the delicious words, the mouthwatering characters… I would simply die.
So, that’s why I’m not doing anything about it.

My life would be so much easier if I would simplify it. I need to get rid of so much stuff. I even have dreams about clearing out the clutter, but I don’t do it. Things are much easier when you don’t make them difficult. When you just go with the flow, things are much less likely to cause you stress. I did hate the word simplify when we did fractions as a kid.

simplify your life; simplify your thoughts; simplify work; simplify expectations; simplify family; simplify your being, your everything, your world

Dear my Dear Butterfly,
You who landed on my heart’s flower and simplified its pattern so my petals no longer fall off in the wind.
The moment I write your name it’s as though angels awaken from the four corners of the page and gather around the fountain of my pen to bless the ink I think: the page glows as the words flow to the source of the light: the thought of you.
No longer are the stars in my night sky, they’re in my life now. Their distance, their age, the devouring darkness of the void that nests them all form the ground to the nirvana I experience during my daily meditation on how blessed I am that I, I got to find you and a way into your heart out of the ocean of lives once between us with all its fury and just a flash in eternity…

A matter of time. It’s just that. My choices right now are to simplify my existence so I can enjoy what remains of this life or to continue as if nothing has changed.

This site is a little bit tougher than i thought.. One word, to write about? Can’t be that difficult. Think again. Simplify. If i were to simplify this website, i would remove the word “simplify” from the database.

I would simplify all of my feelings into one simple phrase that I would clearly articulate, and you would clearly understand, if I could do that. But that is impossible, as layers of ideas and abstractions beyond the scope of language make up my feelings. I’m not just sad. Angry. Happy. I don’t just agree. Disagree. I don’t think and experience reality in simple, constricting sets of words.
By Amanda URL on 05.08.2013
simplify my life by getting rid of things that i don’t need, people i don’t want to associate with, events i don’t want to go to, etc. I just want to do the things i want to do no questions asked. I do not wish to please anyone except my self at this point, then i can move on to pleasing others.
By Kelly on 05.08.2013
I thought I could simplify everything to make my life
easier. I was wrong, so much of what haunted me refused to back
down. No matter how I looked at things, there they were.
By a.r. on 05.08.2013
To simplify life is to live life to the fullest.
Take it one step at a time.
It’s okay to make mistakes.
To be afraid.
To be unsure of what will happen.
All that matters is that you keep on getting through.
It doesn’t matter how.
All that matters is that you get there.
By mik05 on 05.08.2013
simplify your life and everything that is around you. Enjoy, just simplify, simplify. Simplify your choices. Simply simplify.

Sweat gathered in my palms like a streams colliding to form a waterfall. My fingers shook, the pencil trembled along with them. The question in front of me put my mind into a shock. Letters, numbers and greek letters formed a sentence I couldn’t understand at all. I forced my mind to understand it, but to no avail. Tears started swelling up in my eyes. What’s this feeling of mine?
Oh Math, if only you were simple.

I wish people could live a simpler life. Not many prople like simple. Everything gets complicated these days. I hate that. Simplify your life your mind your heart your body. Life should be simple. Simplify everyhing around you. How will people understand you if you make things complicated? You need to be simple in order to see simple. Clear your mind focus on self and relax. Live simply.

Simplify your thoughts, simplify your emotions. That was a
task that she couldn’t grasp, that she couldn’t understand. How
could you possibly simplify anything when the world around you was
so vast, so complicated, and so full of life? Life couldn’t be
simplified. Life ran through her veins, so simplification simply
wasn’t an option for her heart, for her mind, or for her soul.
She’d have to learn to live in the element of confusion, but at
least it was lively.

I just wanted to simplify the mess we had made. She was still asleep and the others were sulking in their own spaces of defeat. I had woken up with the rage still in me and it was only after an hour of blindness that I was able to calm down and in the down from the high of anger, I had realized my failure.
By Bree URL on 05.08.2013
The only word to describe my feelings at that moment was
this: messy. I took a deep breath, then let it out. The only way I
was going to be able to work this out to simplify things. From a
mess, into a neat and tidy space where everything’s all sorted out
in boxes and alphabetised.

We tried to simplify the procedure, so that even the children could control the craft, but it was impossible. It seemed our expedition was doomed once the virus had taken all the adults.

Break it down. See it in a different way. don’t overthink it. take it down to its most basic form. look at it like a blank page nothing to see but exactly what it is.

Read between the lines; play charades, learn the game
Complicating what is simple, turning honesty to shame.

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify. It’s printed on a wooden
board in my mother’s room, hanging on the wall for countless years.
I read it in an old British lady’s voice. Simplify, Simplify,

Sweat beaded on his forehead, everything he had learned was on the line at this very moment. His narrow, beady brown eyes glared at his own reflection as the monitor booted up. C:
C: root_user password?
C: Please enter your password.
With a soft hum, the machine began to burst to life, the words of the screen coming to view like the waves crashing against the shore.

Everything can be simple and complex at the same time. Nothing is ever simple but to simplify something that is complex takes great skill.

If I could simplify my life by a few things, I would first move to a location where I did not need a car, and where I loved the view.
By marylou wynegar URL on 05.08.2013
when i get high i get the urge to simplify. life is so complicated and i don’t want all this stuff around me. it is too much, too stimulating, too crowded i am barely coping with everything that is already there without anything else. on reflection, maybe this is the point where up tips to down and i am not laughing any more but screaming and holding on for dear life.

Buzz buzz buzz
pressured by inevitable stress
NOISES VOICES AND STAR CROSSED CHOICES
your voice kills off frantic umbrellas
that shield the rain of life
so speak to me simply
By Lily URL on 05.08.2013
there are many moments in life where this applies heavily
you must reduce in order to make your life easier
although the process may not be deemed as worth it
take a deep breath
but to think about that complicates
the supposed simplification.
By Katherine on 05.08.2013
Simplified, the message read: I miss you.
By Intuition URL on 05.08.2013
I wish I could simplify my feelings. Narrow them down to 1, 2, 3. Happy, sad, angry. Instead, I feel a million and one things each time you smile at me, and each time I hold your hand I shiver with a tingle of delight. And really, maybe, I don’t need to simplify that.
By darseyrsm URL on 05.08.2013
cluttered am i
a hundred tabs in my browser
a thousand thoughts in my head
always things to do
a moment of complete peace
a time for reflection

simplify life. why do we need complicated? Why do we need traffic? We do we need anything that retracts from simplicity? love coffee. Love books. love walking. Love simple things, because large things take up room. Simple things give you room to love endlessly.

To simplify one’s life is to take a bite out of stress. Nobody really realizes how great life can be. They’re too busy worrying.
By Chimaobi on 05.08.2013
Why do we need to complicate how we feel? Can’t we just like someone without any of these conditions. Without a standard. I don’t get why people search for the “perfect” person for them. Why do we need a checklist to see that this is what we want? When did feeling something for someone else become thinking about yourself?
By Bee Sison on 05.08.2013
“Wait. Stop.” She held out an aggressive hand to me, brows furrowed. “Simplify. What were you doing there?”
“Well,” I manage, tasting blood. “You could say that I had a few debts I needed to repay…”

It is important to simplify your life so that you can get the most out of it. Things don’t bring you happiness. Experience will. Let go of what holds you down. Be free.
By Maggie on 05.08.2013
i need to do it. i think about things so much that it makes things co9mplicated and i can’t see the real, more important things in my life. and then i get caught up. life is easier when the only decorations you choose to put in it are streamlined and not complex
