Since I've decided to step back from blogging, and unplug (I deleted my personal Facebook, gasp!), the clearer my mind has felt and the less distracted I've found myself. I am better able to be the woman I want to be, much in part due to simplifying to gain focus. I trained and swam at the Colorado Masters Swimming State Championships, we've found a church, I've read books, cooked meals, mended clothing, rode bikes, tackled house projects, and grown in relationships with friends and coworkers. I feel strong in my relationship with Jesus and my marriage hasn't felt this right in a long time.
It all sounds so simple, but that's the point, right? Simplifying has shown me a slower pace and a new sense of comfort and joy. I'm still saying au revoir for the time, but know you can still see what life is like for us in our Colorado home by following me on Instagram, @lauren_tien - yes, I did keep one form of social media ;)
