I woke up from a dream and realized I am living my dream — I am my dream.
I made the choice to realize my dream one day at a time long ago. Simplifying my life led to leaving life in the city and moving to the islands. Here I happily remain valuing how precious life is and desiring to life it to the fullest.
Very few people would choose to live this simple life. It’s not an easy life. There is no employer waiting to give you a job. There are no “city amenities” — no big box stores, no franchise fast food joints, no town center, no bumper to bumper traffic, no street lights, etc. — just Nature in all her glory.
I discovered the secret to having more time and energy is eliminating the unfinished business (emotional, spiritual, physical clutter) from my life.
Choosing to live the simple life involves severing attachment to things, clearing clutter from your mind and premises, and replenishing mindfully. Frugal living is making do with what you have. Simple living is about learning how to do more for yourself. Conscious living is choosing to have less impact on the planet.
The art of having less but enjoying our lives more, involves a few simple changes in perspective. First, we must understand where our true values lie and focus on them. Then, we must take time to enjoy the simple things, and slow down and see what’s right in front of us. – The Simple Life
I will continue to be richly rewarded for choosing not to live a highly consumptive lifestyle. I will continue to benefit from discovering loving detachment is a skillful means for conscious living.
I am living my dream — I am my dream.
Are you living your dream?
Have your dreams ever been shattered?
Have you picked up the pieces and used them to build better dream?
