Living A Simple Life

To live a simple life is to develop an understanding of who you are.

Knowing the difference between a need and a want.

Determining what’s in your control, and what is not.

Cultivating a feeling of gratitude.

Being productive, with an aim that is intentional.

When something is simple, it is easy to use.  It just “works”. The design is created for it’s intended purpose, and it’s good at it.

Simple Living Daily is a blog about living a simple life. We discuss simple living tips, with topics around lifestyle, finance, relationships and more. I encourage you to join the conversation in the comments, and contribute to the community.
