The Simple Life

No, this is not a story about that Hilton-Ritchie TV show :)

I refer to you today the writings of my blog-friend Wanda. She opines today about living a simple life. Here are her wonderful 10 steps to Simplicity:
  1. Buy things for their usefulness rather than their status.
  2. Reject anything that is producing an addition in you.
  3. Develop a habit of giving things away.
  4. Refuse to be propagandized by the custodians of modern gadgetry.
  5. Learn to enjoy things without owning them. Parks, Libraries, Museums, Art Galleries, the forest, the ocean, Botanical Gardens, etc. etc.
  6. Develop a deep appreciation of Creation.
  7. Resist "buy now", "pay later" schemes.
  8. Obey Jesus' instruction about plain speech ~~ Let you yes, mean yes, and your no mean no.
  9. Reject anything that breeds the oppression of others.
  10. Shun anything that distracts you from the priority of God and Family.

I encourage you to read Wanda's whole post and visit Wanda's place regularly.. you will find good stuff there.
