We live a Simple Life.
Having a 'Simple Life' is really all about feeling content.
Creating the life that you want to live.
Eliminating the stress.
Putting some thought into what makes you happy.
What is most important in your life.
Making sure you plan life to include those things that give you joy.
Whether that means moving to the country and having a garden,
or moving to the city and going to the theater.
Or staying right where you are.
Whatever your idea of bliss might be.
Off the beaten path.
But with everything, there are compromises.
'Off the beaten path' means long commutes.
Going to the mall requires a long drive along steep roads.
So I find what I need close by.
Or I go without.
Thank goodness for internet shopping!
Living the Simple Life for me means using creativity rather than money.
Raising 4 children necessitated ingenuity.
Home cooking, home sewn, home made.
The Simple Life means knowing my limitations.
Understanding I can't accomplish everything.
Learning how to edit my life.
While still retaining the things I love to do.
Living the 'Simple Life' took years to plan.
But for me, the Simple Life is all about the journey and not the destination.
It is about noticing and appreciating the small blessings.
The little things in life.
Working hard to create a life filled with what I feel is important to me.
Sticking to long term goals.
But without expectations.
Going with the flow.
Finding time to give and receive the best things in life.
Love, Laughter, Family, Friendship
