As you simplify ...




As you simplify your life,

the laws of the universe will be simpler;

solitude will not be solitude,

poverty will not be poverty,

nor weakness weakness.
Henry David Thoreau

As I am trying to simplify my life and throw away the last of my mom's things and clean out my own basement, I brought home two little garden ornaments that I really don't like but were my mom's. A little boy and girl with funny hats holding animals. It is a bad thing. Maybe I will give them to the neighbor lady. I really am going to simplify!!! Nice quote and great photo.

I've been simplifying all summer by decluttering. Not yet done, but getting closer! Every time I donate someting, sell something, or trash something--I feel lighter!

This is a rich quote. I think when we simplfy we define our priorities in the process.

I am more convinced everyday...the simple life is the greatest life. Full of joys for the little things. Thanks for sharing the quote.

Mrs. E ~ Good for you. I'm sure you feel great having done that.

LeSan ~ You are so right. We realize what is really important.

Darcie ~ Yes, joy for the little things. It's the little things that make up most of our days.
