Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 121 People

    I began a journey to simplify my life.

    Boy has it been difficult. The best advice I can give is this: Step 1: Find out what is important to you (top 5 things) Step 2: Eliminate everything else. Step 3: When anything new comes along, ask yourself, will this simplify my life or complicate it?

    Less Drama, Less Stress

    Life is hard enough, but drama and stress makes life nearly unbearable. More than anything, at least right now, I want to make my life simple, if not easier, by cutting ties with drama kings/queens and toxic people.
