“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ― John Lennon


Back to basics can mean decluttering our lives at home, at work and mentally as well.  We tend to complicate our relationships with people because of our relationship with ourself. Stepping back you can see that your relationship with yourself can be misleading if you are avoiding facing truths and realities and use other things in life to divert facing the reality of who you really are. 

Get back to basics and discover who the real you is. Only then can you embrace a full life open to love, change, and living. 

Colossians 3:17 NIV
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
