How To Live Life Simple
Many people around the world live a life of stress and being unhappy. We all have our own problems in life and some can handle them and then there are some that just can not handle any type of stress. All of us need to know how to live life simple and just learn to relax at least some part of our day.
We need to be able to put at least a small part of our day just for ourselves and forget about the stresses and problems you may have if only for a half hour each day. Take the time to treat yourself to some relaxing time, after all, we all deserve that little bit of the day for ourselves.
Many of us want the very best for ourselves, but it comes at a cost, whether it be money wise or something hard you may have to do in order to get that very best for your self.
I have learned, and it has taken many of years to learn, that having the best and most expensive things in life really doesn't make you happy. It may make you happy in the very beginning, but as time goes by the happiness seems to disappear, at least it did for me.
I have learned that the most simple things in life can make you very happy. We can all get very spoiled in life with what we own and have seems to never be enough for us. We always want bigger and better, but not me anymore. I am very satisfied with my simple life and love what I have now even though it is very simple.
Help on Living a Simple Life
What a Simple Life I Have and You Can Too.
See, you have a ton of fun doing anything in life and will not cost you a fortune. I have had many boats from row boats to 47 footers and the boat on the right of the photo is my new (used) purchase. It certainly is not a 47 foot live aboard like I used to have, but simple enough to have just as much fun and maybe even more than that huge boat.
You don't have to spend lots of money to have fun. The whole package, boat, motor and trailer was only $1,250.00. Paid in full and no worries about monthly payments. I can go out boating with no worries of where the next payment will come from. This is only an example of what I am talking about. Having fun and living life simple at minimum cost.
The point I am trying to get across to you is that you can live a simple life is so many ways and the boat is only one example. We all have the smarts to living simple. it is your choice whether that is the life for you or would you just like to keep getting bigger and better things in your life until you have reached that point that there maybe nothing else to can buy or get that will make your life a happy one.
I don't want you to think I am bragging when i speak about my life and how I made it a simple life, but I want you to understand that it can be done if you are willing to downsize and get rid of all those expensive toys and do a little sacrificing in your life if you can not afford them. I see so many people, including myself, that always want to out beat their friends and family in material thing in life. Doing this will only get you further in debt and believe me, it will happen. It happened to me until I smartened up and was willing to let all that go and live the simple life.
You can do just the same if you really want to live that simple life and still have loads of fun without drowning in debt.
I can not be anymore happier than I am right now. I am clean and sober and just living life simple.
