Being contented with what with have is also another way of living simply. When we are appreciative and grateful for the good in our lives; we are likely to be more physically active, more content in our day-to-day lives and suffer less health problems. If our financial situation is less than ideal, we should understand and accept our current circumstances, limitations, strengths and weaknesses. Acceptance is the key to create a simpler life because if not, then we will be overshadowed by feelings of inadequacy, guilt and comparison.
Moreover, good health makes everything simpler. Calming our frantic mind and worried heart just by putting everything into writing. We will be surprised how seeing our thoughts in writing puts them into better perspective and provides clarity on what to do next.
Furthermore, living simply is getting rid of many of the things we do so we can spend time with people we love and do the things we love. However, simplicity is not always a simple process. Although, it does not necessarily have to be difficult; we just have to be willing to shift our focus. In fact, simplicity is a journey, not a destination. As we simplify our lives, we begin to see our real the essence. There is so much happiness in living a simpler life in which little things bring joy, improve our relationships and connections.
Simplifying our lives even in little ways can make a big difference because little changes can be accomplished quickly especially by giving more time and space so we can try other approaches to make our lives simple and uncomplicated. Living within our means is better than living beyond what we have.
Nobody is perfect. We have to embrace our strengths and weaknesses. But it does not mean that we have to stop learning. We just have to move on and then accept that no matter what we have, we still have limitations either in personal or circumstances. There might be things that are not yet possible considering our situations but we should be proud of what we have achieved so far because we did out best to reach them.
