Lighten The Burden

Any time is a good time to lighten the burden. That is what living more simply is all about. Why not make 2022 the year of letting go of the unnecessary? 

That may mean quitting a job you hate, or ridding your life of stuff that is unwanted and unloved. It all reduces the load you must carry through life, and leads to a deep, lasting happiness.

I'm with Gandhi on this one - simplifying our affairs is the way to get rid of the extras in order to make the necessary more easily carried by all.

"Happiness, the goal to which we all are striving, is reached by endeavouring to make the lives of others happy, and if by renouncing the luxuries of life we can lighten the burdens of others... surely the simplification of our wants is a thing greatly to be desired! 

And so, if instead of supposing that we must become hermits and dwellers in caves in order to practice simplicity, we set about simplifying our affairs, each according to his own convictions and opportunity, much good will result and the simple life will at once be established."

- Gandhi


If we can lighten the burden for others, and ourselves, we are well advised to do so.

Everything we do in this regard will consequently lighten the burden on our beleaguered planet.

May your burden be lightened during this holiday season, and throughout 2022.

That is our desire for our blog's readers, as well as for the whole human family.


In Simplicity,


Linda and Gregg
