I’ve always bought into the simple life. I innately believe that living with simplicity gives us peace, over and above any materialistic wealth.
Living simply, means we can focus in the moment, with what we have rather than what we’d like. We must learn to focus on our understanding of what simplicity means so that we can add that to our life, not in terms of what we give up.
Simplicity is about beauty. Seeing beauty in the simplest of things. The simple things are the least complicated. We keep running after things thinking we’re going to miss out, but the truth is that as we continue to run after more, we want more. Without simplicity we won’t have a life, well not in the true sense. What we will have is an existence.
Simplicity needs nurturing and if we continue to do that, we shall have peace. It gives us the feeling of wholeness, achieved by us taking out the clutter, emotionally and physically and by being simple at heart. It’s not difficult to develop these qualities.
We’re human, we evolve, but we must have the inner desire to change, to bring simplicity to our lives. We must want to acquire and to live the simple life with simple thoughts. With simple thoughts we’re humbled, we’re grounded, we want to live life to its fullest.
With simplicity bedded firmly into our lives, we’re more understanding of our life, of our roots and more importantly of our experiences, which means we’re less likely to run from them.
We’re also more likely to think about life in its simplicity without things having to be so complicated, after all it’s not life that’s complicated, we make it complicated.
