There’s been an exciting trend growing in our culture to have quality over quantity and to value what you have rather then accumulate the next best thing. I’m not a minimalist, though I tend to live by the “everything in it’s place” rule. What I do cultivate in my own life/home/etc is to count my blessings and purpose to share those blessings I’ve been given with others. For me peace and prosperity is found in living simply. It takes diligance and purpose to limit yourself and say no to the extras life has to offer – so that I may fully enjoy the essentials in my life.
Have you had to make those choices? To cultivate those things that bring joy into your life, and let go of those things that would prevent you from having peace and contentment? Sometimes it is almost a daily task!
