So many choices….

I used to be an adoption social worker, and I would discuss with families how kids who come from other countries can find the grocery store to be a painful experience. For kids who grow up with limited stimulation, the lights, the sounds, the temperatures and the choices can actually cause a child physical pain.

I was often curious about this and wonder what it would be like to walk down the cereal aisle for a first time. I remember being keenly aware of our excessive amounts of choices in our grocery store, clothing stores, shoe stores and almost every other place as well.

And so as I consider the excessive amount of choices we have in our every day living and I look at the word on my wall that says SIMPLIFY, I realize that I want to spend some time considering how I can carry my commitment to simplify into my thoughts when I encounter the abundance of choice we have every day. Somehow tonight, I am struck by how all these choices are a blessing and a curse.
