Welcome to Towards Simplicity. I blog my goals, especially my reading and studies, and my ongoing downscaling and using up of material stuff and working towards a more minimalist lifestyle.

New Goals Page
I missed my timed goals page, so I've re-done one. This one is stuff I aim to complete by the end of next year. A lot of it is reading and study, but there are also some qualifications I want to get on it and some other projects - including my needlework. I haven't counted how many there are in total, but I've got two completed already, (just reading things though). I hope to have another few done by the end of the month, including finishing one study book and one embroidery project. I've also dumped most of the former 'In progress' page and what's left of it has been renamed 'Ideas' as most of the other content has re-appeared on the 'Goals 2011/2' page etc. Let's see....
1: When in doubt, take the next small step.
2: Life is too short to waste hating anyone - even if you do have forever!
3: Whatever doesn't kill you often makes you stronger.
4: Make peace with your past so it won't interfere with the present.
5: Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. Get the best from what YOU have.
6: Children get only one childhood - let them have it. There's nothing worse than a 9 year old adult.
7: Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear fancy lingerie. Don't save it for that special occasion that never comes. Today is a gift - that's why it's called 'the present'.=)
8: Be yourself now, you don't have to wait for old age to wear purple!
9: No one is in charge of your happiness but you and no-one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
10: React to each perceived disaster with these words. 'In five years, will this matter?'
11: Forgive everyone everything, who has the energy to carry around the weight of grudges?
12: The best is yet to come. Psalm 37:29

My rainbow is strongly shaded green and violet.
What is says about me: I am an intelligent person. I appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. Those around me admire my fresh outlook and vitality. I am patient and will keep trying to understand something until I've mastered it.
