A simple life is a life of both less and more.
It is a life of less distraction, less consumption, and less of the inessential, to make room for more mindfulness, more intention, and more of what matters.
If one’s life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for contentment.
Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements.
Living a simple life does not mean you lack ambition.
What it means is that you choose to keep things simple so that you can focus on more important.
When you have less distractions, you are able to focus more.
The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it is not simple.
People struggle to live a simple life. Being content with less is hard for many people.
We are born in a world of chasing. Chasing good grades, chasing a great career, chasing an awesome partner, chasing a deal and another one, chasing a big house, chasing more money, more friends, more clothes, more shoes, bags, books, followers, power etc.
This is an endless chase. We never arrive to the destination.
Stopping this chase and saying enough, what I have is enough and I don’t want more is something very rare.
Contentment is not reached by seeking more, but by enjoying less.
