You make life complicated.
You think you’re so important.
You want it your way, or no way.
You have a choice right now. A choice that can change everything. You can continue to choose to push against reality and struggle with it or you can choose to move with the world and use that energy to create something new.
Use the forces you have within your power your strength, courage, and conviction.
You always have something within your reach.
Today it may as simple your smile, but the energy of a smile can light up a room and lift spirits.
Life is not complicated at all. We make it that way.
It’s when we behave selfishly.
Take advantage of every moment that presents itself as an opportunity to be kind, compassionate and easy to be with today.
And if for some reason you don’t have the bandwidth for that, then do no harm.
How can we uncomplicate things today?
Be the missing ingredient. The one to soothe each situation and to raise the vibes. Be the listener, the lover, the mender, the healer and the bigger person with a generous heart.

He married a supermodel, photographed rock stars and came from a wealthy family. Easy on the eyes too.
