Maybe you’re ready for simple living…

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”
Crowfoot, Warrior

Maybe you rolled out of bed this morning and wished your life could be simpler.

Maybe you’re sick of being stuck in traffic in a cluttered messy car telling yourself there has got to be a better way to live your life.

Maybe you value freedom. You’ve experienced work life long enough to seek means beyond corporate servitude.

Maybe you’re just sick, tired, and in debt to your eyeballs.

Maybe you’re getting over minimalism. Constantly spending your nights washing your only white t-shirt.

Maybe you can’t find your kitchen sink under all of the oddities and kitchen curiosities you’ve collected in your travels.

Or, maybe you have no money in the bank, a job you hate and an unfulfilling life. Doing stupid stuff for other people for money to buy stuff  from another group of people just as caught in the trap as you are.

Maybe you’re all of these things and maybe now you want out.

Start with one room in your house and simplify.  Week after week pick a simplify project and apply yourself. Simplify how and where you make money.  Simplify who you pay and what you pay them for. Learn new skills. Read about simple living on the internet. Start to build up your neighbourhood. Live more locally. Share. Save money doing it. You are not a drone meant to mine away in a cubicle. Your life is too precious for that. Outsmart them by living simply. Become free.
