Simplicity - Perry
I'm not in the mood to write much, but I figure that since work is kind of slow today, that it would do me good to watch and write about a conference talk right about now.
Elder Perry's talk seemed to talk about a topic which would benefit a lot of people today - simplicity.
As far as I go, I can think right now of one specific thing which I could definitely improve in my life as far as unnecessary complication goes. I'll leave the details to myself, but it was good to do a self-analysis anyway...
I wonder how much peace I must be missing out on by unnecessary worries and concern over things I can't control.
I guess a good way to look at it would be, "Take what life gives you, and do the best you can with it. Don't burden yourself with worries about anything else."
Although I don't feel particularly inspired by Elder Perry's words, I do find a lot of utility in the concept.
