There is no such thing as a simple life. If there are four agreements or four holy truths, you can bet they’ll be a lifelong interaction of complexity, daring and destiny shifts.
Words are simple too. Sometimes I don’t spell them correctly or have to look them up – I love dictionaries, now that is complexity made simple! Keep your eye on the ball, say what you mean, tell the truth. More complexity and lucky the person who can feel and know who they are. Even luckier to take responsibility for same.
Holding ourselves and being held are some tools for self awareness. The triangle balance of asking for help, accepting same and knowing who you are is like a milking stool that supports you when the cow/life kicks.
Balance is not a trick. It is real. The ingredients I know best are showing up, paying attention, telling the truth and being open to the outcome.
