Latest Blog Posts for a life less complicated

  • far, far away
    on Feb 13, 2012
    I've not had a chance to post anything in a couple weeks due to a overly demanding work schedule. I think I've put in over 70 hours a week for the past couple of weeks straight - exactly what I said I didn't want to be doing anymore. Unfortunately fo...
  • simplicity and the zen of waffles
    on Jan 30, 2012
    I recently came across another blog about simple living, the overall message was good, but the blog read like an encyclopaedia. The intro post (and there are over 500 posts on this site) contained a list of to-do's to help simply your life. There wer...
  • who do you admire?
    on Jan 25, 2012
    Admiration is a powerful thing, it can shape our aspirations and can impress upon us values. In our emulation admiration can create benchmarks of accomplishment. Although I don't think I had ever really thought about it before the drive home today, I...
  • karma... or just good directions
    on Jan 22, 2012
    It's been a few days since I've had time to write anything, but my mind has been far from absent from this challenge I've set for myself. I spoke with my employer at the beginning of the week about my plans (or lack thereof), and I'm feeling more tha...
  • an interlude
    on Jan 15, 2012
    So we've set the scene, introduced the characters and laid out a basic back story; now what? If this were a novel or movie, I would have a sudden revelation and would introduce "the plan", antics would ensue and by the end of the story all my goals w...
  • a few complications
    on Jan 14, 2012
    So, sounds like an easy solution right? I obviously just need to go buy something really big and expensive that I can really get into for another day, week, or maybe even month of distraction from the life that allows me to buy big expensive things..
  • the money trap
    on Jan 14, 2012
    This is starting to sound like we're better off than we are, so I should clarify a few things:First of all, and this is the cornerstone of consumerism, the more you have the more you want. We spend more than we make, and as much as we have it never s...
  • consumerism and me
    on Jan 14, 2012
    I didn't really have much as a kid, and made a decision quite early on that my life would be better if I had a lot of money. Although this was far from a guiding principal in my developing years, it was certainly always in the back of my mind. ...
  • the challenge
    on Jan 10, 2012
    Can I give up everything I've worked hard for all these years; my "life of luxury", my home, my cars, my boat, my toys, my job - all so that I can spend more time with my family instead of commuting back and forth to work? Yes, I think so. How and wh...
  • a little background
    on Jan 10, 2012
    I guess I need to step back a moment and set the scene - it's all quite clear to me of course, but anyone reading this will probably want a little more detail before I start ranting.I'm 33 years old, married to an incredible woman, J, who I've been w...
