    Simplicity Is Freedom

    I am currently reading "How to be free" by Tom Hodgkinson. He advocates a simpler life, back to basics, and refusing the dictates of materialism. I like that.Ride a bike. Play the ukelele. Bake your own bread. Grow your own veg...Throw away your television. Stop reading...

    I feel like a lot of people don't understand me

    when I say this. I know so many people who are constantly wanting the very best or the next best thing. I would be content having very little. I mean, yeah, it would be nice for me to own a house, but I could absolutely care less if I lived in a trailer, or even a camper! If I...

    I Was Always Told

    A Simple Life

    All I want is a simple life, my family safe and well, maybe a friend or 2 I could actually trust and who aren't looking to cause drama. Is that to much to ask, sometimes I wonder. Should I just take what I've got and be happy. People have less. But a simple life is all I want...

    What I Used To Believe

    I used to believe that I needed a full plate, so to speak, to be happy. Not just a full plate, but a heaping mound of achievements and experiences to put the average person to shame. I wanted to be popular, smart, funny, adventurous, kind, interesting, ambitious, talented, and...
