When I have less expenses, after I am done paying on my new car (in 3 1/2 years things will be good.
The older I get, the more convinced I am that simplifying your life is the road to happiness. When we began full time RVing, we simplified our lives out of necessity by getting rid of excess stuff, keeping only what was absolutely necessary. Going on the road for 4 years simplified out lives in many ways - fewer commitments, fewer bills and lots less stuff to worry about. ( I've written about the change in lifestyle in several of my hubs about RVing.) Now that we have a home base, we try to keep that simpicity in our lives.
Occam's razor or KISS (keep it simple and succinct). I like the rock band too! But, I have learned from complexity comes simplicity. It is dependent on perspective in the sense of following and leading. It is simpler to follow. For 'self' being me, to follow means trust and faith. To lead means something simple too! To lead means to decide.
The oddity of it is this, from one perspective. Remember when you were told to form a line in grade school. Some may want to be first. Others want to be last. Then there all those who just want be in line. Then the teacher says 'follow me.' When all is said and done everyone follows and leads going somewhere, (maybe the playground or maybe back to the classroom or a trip to the library).
A little interjection here. Though I began this adventure in 1st grade it took a lifetime to learn that the teacher is following too! And, someone or something or ????? decides. And, the kid at the end of the line, well, really is doing the same thing - leading and following. We can't forget about 'self.'
See, what I mean. From complexity comes simplicity. The burden of 'simpler' is deciding. And, for me, it is much more fun to be happy with what I have and simply lead me while I follow what is in front of me.
Now, sit down and write that hub (smile)! Oh yeah, RVing is fun too!
Nothing is simple in my life, it is always a struggle and stressful at times. But if I had to dig deep down inside to find something that my makes my life simpler would be just going on road trips and thinking of ways to make things simpler. Thanks, good question.
Just go day by day and give yourself goals for that day and try and complete them the best you can.

I joined Hubpages only a few weeks ago. My hubs are basically me ranting about things that drive me crazy. My friend thought it would be a good idea for me to have a way to vent in a somewhat funny way, so please check...
