A simple life might really seem like it is going to be something that is ideal. And I am trying to live in a world of simplicity whenever I can but it is really just something that is a rather prominent uphill battle. Just really when you think about it, attempts to live simply can really be a bit harder than we are going to have ever expected. I do enjoy a simple life but I really know that life is really not something that is that simple. It can be something that can be done and it might ease the stress, but it really does depend on what you want out of life. And that is the real key thing, where many people take a while to figure what they do in fact want out of life. Still a simple life is really something that can be grand and glorious. But the road there can be something that is a bit troubling and just a touch bit challenging depending on your perspective.

How do we define simplicity? Does it mean that i don't have to live in luxury? Does it mean i have to forego expensive things? For me it's being humble. Despite one's status in life, one must remain humble and fearsome of the Supreme Being, as well as respectful of others.

Simplicity means honest and transparent in thoughts, belief and deed. It means being true to yourself and others. It means right means of livelihood. It means the eight fold noble path of Buddha - Right speech, right action, and so on. If you live in simplicity you are not greedy or jealous. You are satisfied with what comes your way through honest livelihood.

Living in simplicity do have many definition. Living a simple life for others means not to be blinded with those materialistic stuff. Some would living in life simple thru the word of God. As for me, living in simplicity means having an inner peace plus be contented with what I have.

life is in our hand and it is we who are driving the life. i don't like to waste things and i live my life simple. i will analyze things before i buy it. i will check whether this particular thing will be useful to me or not. i love to help people and i will try to save money and give it to poor instead of buying whatever i like.

Life can be simple , and the happiness of our life are made up of simple things, the love between couples, the love between family members and the friendship between friends. But it is not easy to lead a simple life for many people. Now there are many alluring things in the world, if you want to get them, things will become more and more complicated. Many people give their time and their energy to take care of their family, while spend a lot of time on their job, which can not give them any happiness. But in many countries, they think become success is the most important things in their lives, but even when they get success, they are not happy with it, for they lost their simple lives and the happiness.

I live my life in simplicity when I do buy things wisely. I do not spend much money on things that are more of a fad or trend than being useful to be. It is not easy to earn money. And it is better to have an extra money for future use.
