    This is a work in progress…by decluttering and purchasing less useless items that end up in the landfill.

    By pausing often enough, with intention, for connect with and focus on what really matters, and letting go of the rest – one breath, step, day at a time …

    By continuing to go through my stuff and get rid of things I don’t need. We have lived in this house for 22 years, and it shows! I have been going through things for months, a little at a time, and now am seeing alot of headway. So….I am continuing…I am looking at everything from wooden spoons to oven thermometers, and donating things we don’t need anymore. It is incredible the stuff I saved because maybe one of my children would need it someday(they have said no, they are doing the same thing)or maybe I would need it eventually. Nope. Someone will benefit from this, and that makes me very happy.

    Let me focus on the “stuff” part of this question. It’s been gnawing at me to tackle: the stuff I neither need nor want; the stuff I might someday need and am holding it just in case; the stuff that has some sentimental attachment that I can decouple from the sentiment and send on its way. Yup this has been gnawing away.

    Living more simply is about choosing what to say yes to, being okay with resting, and knowing that I am enough.

    I think I could mind my own business more often. I tend to be a little codependent with my relatives, always checking up on them and getting caught up in their drama, when it would be better to accept that I can’t change them or their situation, they have to do it themselves, and I should just focus on finding peace and tending to my own issues.

    By finding our/own flow, in the process of letting go and in the letting in, with simplicity.

    Two ways-
    1. Lower the bar. Stop letting high expectations create unnecessary complexities and frustrations.
    2. Just say no. No further reason or explanation required.

      I agree that being overly perfectionistic or competitive just adds more pressure and frustration rather than peace and comfort. This is something I have always struggled with.

    I am not sure it is about simple. For me, it is more about living authentically. Simplicity may be an outcome but not the cause.

      I struggle with this, but definitely think that I would finish more books if I focused on one at a time.

    I think my husband and I live fairly simply. We are both retired, have a smaller place than before, don’t need to buy business clothing any more, so our clothing needs are simple. We do buy high quality food but we eat less than we did when we were working. All in all, it is a nice way to live.

      I really love this – I am just starting to live on my own and i am prioritizing high quality food that feel good for my body… focusing on the “simple”, less “processed” foods.

    Kevin has captured this one for me: “It’s about living simply in heart, Spirit, and space…”

    For me at this time, living simply in heart and Spirit is the key. Clearing my head and my heart of heaviness and doubt. Filling the space created with love and kindness. Noticing and celebrating the small joys, bringing them into the light and allowing them to shine and to grow. Choosing to focus on the good. Choosing to live gratefully.

    Maybe when I clean up my room a bit, I can go through my stuff and see what I want to get rid of. I honestly have a lot of clutter that I don’t really need or even really want, for that matter. Also, I dream of living in a tiny home once I get my own place.
