I'd Like to Start Over

Life here isnt' all that bad....but taking my family and moving to start over sounds very appealing sometimes.

I've grown so tired of the consumerism that surrounds us and it's such an uphill battle trying to live differently. There are times that my friends just don't understand. When I say I don't want to spend extra money on certain things it's not an invitaion to offer to pay my way....I'm not anyone's charity case.

Why do people pity the person who actually wants to live a simple life? I'm still the same person with the same heart and personality I just no longer feel the need to waste our hard earned money on dinners and coffee drinks and nights out..etc...

Moving probably isn't the answer...maybe sticking around and showing people that simpliciy is fun is my answer....who knows...
