When we first moved to the farm, we hoped that it would help us to simplify our lives. It’s not that our lives were completely chaotic, but we hoped that more space and less people would help us to slow down and focus on the things that were most important to us.
For me, simple living is not about living an austere life, but rather, valuing and using what we have and avoiding the idea that we constantly need new and better things to be happy. It’s about taking practical steps to eliminate the clutter, scale back the commitments, and make choices that give time to what is most important to us.
