For Advent this year I’m participating in the #AdventWord project from Anglican Communion’s Global Advent Calendar with a daily meditation on the word for the day.

Simplify. That’s a complicated word.

I could simplify by decluttering my home of the excess possessions that pile up if I had the time. I could simplify my schedule if it ever felt like I had the energy to do much more than the bare minimum to raise children, hold down a job, and be a responsible adult.

Simplicity is complicated.

“Simplify” is a verb that looks like it’s just one more thing to do.

I think I’ll seek simplicity in being rather than doing.
