“Happiness has many roots, but none more important than security”. E.R. Stettinius, Jr. Back in the day I used to think that my idea of hell would be a stable job, secure home in the suburbs and sensible rubber boots. I wanted to be free damn it. Now…it seems almost the opposite for I’ve realised… Continue reading Freedom = Security
My low-buy year has helped me rediscover how much I already have. I’ve been making a conscious effort to reach for the lesser worn scrunchie or t.shirt and to cook with that cous-cous in the cupboard or those frozen veg in the freezer. The full KondoI If you have things that you no longer need/use… Continue reading Use it or lose it
As I’ve been walking in a Winter wonderland recently, I’ve been listening to podcasts and some of the things I’ve had have heard on them have struck me and stuck with me for further contemplation and motivation. “You’re putting the needs of tomorrow ahead of the wants of today.” Captain Fi on Episode 4: Aussie… Continue reading More words to live by
