Simplification is the topic of the school exam paper that Hybrida bloggers are actually working with right now. So I am actually quite busy with my exam and writing about this concept.
Anyway I got inspired by the topic and I wanted to write a post about simplicity and about how complex it can be to make things simpler.
We are all overwhelmed by consumerism and sobered by the economy, that makes me question: What does a more balanced and sustainable way of living look like?
We live in times when super-busy schedules have become something to boast about. While the speed of life increases, there is less and less time to enjoy the moment that you are in. The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, is the base towards long term happiness of any human being.
Simplicity is not about living in poverty; it is about living with balance, however there are no rules or recipes with all the answers upon how to build a sustainable lifestyle.
It is nice to see that more and more citizens are embracing the less-is-more philosophy of “voluntary simplicity,” trading possession obsession for personal fulfilment.
It is time for our generation to invent cool lifestyles for living just like Gandhi believed in a life of simplicity and self-sufficiency.
This kind of simplicity that I am talking about “works” when you choose a lifestyle that fits you and your values and is based on the things that are the most important to YOU.
So,I believe that the “magic secret” is a balance of consistency, moderation, and flexibility, and the goal should be a lifestyle that is based on happiness, joy, love, excitement and fulfilling.
There is nothing wrong or negative about LIVING your life instead of just existing day to day!
Start noticing what makes you happy every day; be happy, enjoy every moment of your life.
