Feeling overwhelmed? You're not alone! It appears that us modern folk have got so busy 'filling' our lives with stuff (things, activities, more things) that we have left no space for ourselves.
Here are a few quotes on simplicity, still powerful and relevant today. Why not take some time to reflect on them?
"Beware the barrenness of a busy life." - Socrates
"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." - Confucious
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." - Leonardo Da Vinci
"Collect moments, not things." - Unknown
"When we crave simplicity, we are not after an easier life. We are after life." - Dave Bruno
The power in simplicity is that it brings you freedom. By casting off, you open up a spaciousness filled with opportunities rather than chores. As John Maeda said: "If you are going to have less things, they must be great things."
What great things do you need to make space for today?
