    “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius. Great quote! I think it’s natural for us as humans to make things simple, then make things complex, then try to break down the complexities to simple, and the cycle continues. I think it’s human nature to follow this cycle, and anyone who can be self aware enough to break out of it is far ahead of everyone else.

    It is not important to do everything, but it is important to do the most important things. We tend to get so frustrated in life, but many times it’s our own fault for overloading our schedules and then we get overwhelmed with life. Simplifying is likely the answer to living a more productive, healthy, and successful life.

    My life tends to get more complicated over time. Some of it’s my own doing. I have less and less free time as I commit more of my free time to my side hustles. I was thinking just yesterday: “I need a week off to organize everything.” My house, my electronic files, my office, clothes………the list goes on.

      Oh I have been there! One of the important thing I realized is the fact, I need to start delegating more!

    The older I get, the more I want to simplify! I want a clutter free life, mentally and physically. It really does help my mental state when I cut out the fat and only have to focus on what really matters.

    Living simply is so rewarding. If I stopped using something, I sell it right away. I don’t need any depreciating assets cluttering up my space and my mind. How do I know when I’ve stopped using something? If it starts collecting dust, I consider throwing it up on Craigslist.

      That’s a great point, Will, I have decluttered a lot lately as well.

    I really, really want to be a minimalist. I know I could do it, because I don’t use a lot of the stuff in my house. The problem will be going through everything to decide what’s important and what’s not. Great ideas, Reelika!

    Our family just recently discovered how living minimal would better organize our life. I actually wrote a post about it too. We are much happier with less stuff, less clutter, and we feel happier.

    I’m in the process of minimizing all of our stuff. I find it just clutters our life and makes everyday a hassle. Seriously another great post! Thank you!
