Is simplicity and minimalism a virtue? I feel that it very well should be.
A virtue is moral excellence. It is something that is held in high regard as a core value above other beliefs.
Simplicity as a core value should be right up there with courage, tolerance, honesty and patience.
My own level of simplicity and minimalist living is certainly a work in progress.
But I feel that it is a core value that I have.
Perhaps not enough focus is given to simple living when people are young. We are led to believe that spending and obtaining material possessions is the path to happiness.
What a shame. We are doing an incredible disservice to the youth of today by not giving them an alternative lifestyle to the one of spending and debt.
Is is said that money makes the world go ’round. What about love, and tolerance? What about patience and hope?
I had some time off yesterday and the weather was amazing. So I just sat outside and read a book. An actual book with pages that I could hold and feel and smell.
Life is just too short to be worrying about money as much as we do. There is a better way to live and I truly believe that the path to happiness should include simplicity and minimalist living.
Maybe we should have some kind of a life plan. Maybe we should identify our personal core values.
Is it just me or are people kind of lost these days. I am not saying that people are bad but that they have lost their way.
Maybe they need someone to help should them an alternative to spending and debt.
Embrace simplicity as a virtue. As something you truly believe in. When you make the decision to do this I feel you will find you feel so much lighter in spirit and happier in your day to day activities.
