I want to live a simple life. A simple life means a life without stress, anxiety and worry. Living with less stuff, less debt, less clutter means living with more freedom, more time, more joy. I don't need a lot of stuff. I only want to have a small family and earn a comfortable living, and spend more time with family. I just want to be happy. What do you say? Do you also want to live a simple life? Any ideas of how to simplify the life? The picture is of my new house at the dawn

I'm a minimalist. I try to only have things that I use daily or things that bring me joy like my grandpa's old bow tie or grandma's earrings. I do keep old letters and cards which aren't practical but they bring me joy. Everything that matters to me can be fit into my Toyota car. It's liberating not to have a lot of stuff tying you down!

That's really a simple life. I'm creating a life of simplicity for myself. Simplicity makes me feel happier, healthier, more joyful, more relaxed, more prone to laughter and dancing, more in touch with my emotions, more loving towards my boyfriend.
That's a simple life. Living a simple life doesn't mean that one lives without TV, no internet access, no cellphone, no radio, no video games, no electric stove, no rice cooker, no AC, no comfortable bed, house without any room, bamboo walls, roof made of coconut leaves, floor made in hardened clay/mud, no decent bathroom. But, a simple life means a life which is having the basic necessities and being content. not wanting more than you need.

Im working on downsizing, and it is hard at times. We are redoing our house flooring and painting, everything. So everything is kinda on hold to reorganize and see what I want to keep and what to get rid of. We like doing crafts so I have lots but want to go thru it all. Another problem is we have lived here over 20 years with up to 10 kids at a time, we have 8 ourselves so there is a lot of stuff that they have given to us over the years.
