    Seeing The Light

    I've always liked things, but never knew when to get rid of them. Then, one day while on break at work, I came across this book that was about Buddhism. One thing I really like about Buddhism is the philosophy of simplicity it teaches. I started simplifying every thing in my life...

    What are your thoughts on this?

    I think it's a fascinating idea, and could be really fun with the right partner, but I'm not sure I could pull it off full-time, but I can't help but be a bit intrigued... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4kFqdWesW0o

    It Doesn't Take Much To Make Me Happy.

    I want a simple life. A roof over my head, clean sheets on my bed. Food in the fridge and some lights. Well clothing, don't want to run around naked. My children's laughter and smiling faces. There is one thing that I do miss. A simple kind of man. Who will love and...

    I love my life. I love how simple it is.

    I don't really stick out very much. But I just feel that there is more to it than it seem. I am fine being simple but sometimes I feel like I am supposed to do something very important some day. Does anyone else feel this way?!??

    A Worthy Endeavor

    The first 30 years of my life was full of drama and chaos. My father was a hardcore "pack rat" and I felt smothered by both him and his "stuff". I have worked for the last 30 years to simplify and destress my life as much as possible (things as well as people). When I get...

    I feel like this is making me a bit antisocial

    because I am so simple in my life and void of most drama that when I come into situations or meet people who embellish stories or have these grand tales of things that are going on in their lives or just are balls of drama in general I shy away from the conversation because I...

    I'm currently living in Giza, Egypt (or Greater Cairo, as it is sometimes called). I rented a room in an old lady's apartment. She lives in another apartment downstairs, and luckily, I have the whole place to myself so far, no other tenants. I like this crude, kinda rustic...
