    My New Way

    1. Simplify. I don't need half of what I currently own. I could stand to downsize and give some of my things to people who would use them more than I do.2. Show kindness everywhere, every day, to every person. This can be difficult- we all have days when we don't feel good and...

    For much of my life, money is something that hasn't come to me very easily. I've had to work pretty darn hard for what I've managed to acquire, and when I dare compare my life to other's lives, I'm not very high up on the ladder of material success. I've always just scraped by...
