These are a couple videos that have inspired me. Both are intentional ways to slow down, and be resourceful amidst large cities. They remind me that I cultivate any kind of life even when the culture around me is busy.

Living without drama

The past couple of weeks I have dealt with unhealthy family dynamics. The lack of boundaries and communication can have a negative affect on relationships.

These incidents were not with me personally. In my family I realized I am moral support to many. At times it can be very overwhelming.

Living uncomplicated is an intentional thing. It is thoughtful, and forgiving, and requires work. I have decided I will live without the drama.

If I find myself in the middle I will choose to remove myself. I will continue to be listening ear to my family but will speak up when the conversation goes into circles, or when I feel that an individual isn’t interested in having a conversation, but merely wants to talk without wanting to change. I’ll be mindful to live without feeding into the drama. And, I will also choose to surround myself with individuals who aren’t weighed down by complaints, anger, and competition.

Living lightly is more than just possessions, it is living light in our souls, too.

Dear Reader,

Sorry it has been so long since I last updated this blog. My intention to write was for accountability, and inspiration. Since my last post AH (awesome husband) and I went abroad for a couple months. When we returned I became awfully ill, and the majority of last year was recovery, and ‘taking it slow’.

Since my last post we continue to walk towards our goal of living simply, in whatever form that looks to us. In our case its to enjoy life and live with less stress. We work hard when we have to, and we savor the still moments of enjoying simple pleasures, too.

Anyways, I hope to be more present here, and continue to grow towards a life full of enjoying the simple things, health, and joy.

With love. Xx
