The word simplify means, to make simple or simpler. To make something less complex, to reduce fundamental parts, or to make something easier to understand. The idea of the word simplify delights my soul. It gives me thoughts of things being easier and less stressful. It fills my spirit with quietness and hopefulness. It is encouraging and motivating. Every New Year brings about a new challenge and sets of resolutions. I personally usually do not make resolutions, mostly, because I don't like the idea of setting myself up for failure. So I'd rather surprise myself at the end of the year with what I did do and learn. This year, I am singing a new tune. I have sat down and thought extensively about some things that I want to do differently. I have gauged new priorities and I'm going to focus on goals that I have been wanting to achieve, but have been put on the back burner. Why not now? Simplify! This year you won't find me on FB instead I will be writing more, playing more, exercising, reading, traveling, learning a new trait and worrying less, and focusing on people who engage and share in our family's happiness. It may not sound simple to you, but it does to me. Focusing on things that quiet my soul are things worth doing. It's being happy with what you have (material things), but yet engaging in making more memories with your family (traveling with them, playing with them). Being a parent that says, "Yes" more than the one that says, "No". Engaging with friends and family that want you to be in their life. Putting the phone away at night and using that time to talk to my husband and share in his daily happenings. Being more present in the now and less distracted while sharing with him. Here's to a New Year. We encourage our friends and family to take this journey with us. We are currently trying to get a way for you to subscribe to our blog and receive updates on our progress. Like anything new, I will need to do my homework to make that work. Thank goodness my hubby is more tech savvy than myself. Here you will find updates, pictures and the happenings with us. Above all, we hope our family is an encouragement to yours. Life is hard, but friends and family make it worth the ride! Hold tight because Team Walker is taking off in 2015!
