We Live Simply is about one goal:
“live simply so that others may simply live”
I’m not hoping to turn you into monks or make you join a commune somewhere but I believe that living a simple life will not only give you the time, energy and finances to do what you’re really passionate about — but also give you the opportunity to give more of yourself away to those around you.
I believe that by choosing to live a more simple life, we not only care for our planet, but also our neighbors around the world.
Each decision and each purchase we make can have a lasting impact on the world around us.
Whether it’s cutting back on consumption, buying FairTrade, or starting a garden, I hope that the ideas you find within this site help you to live simply — both as a benefit to you and your neighbors around the world.
In no way do I claim to be an expert in living simply. I’m just a pilgrim on this journey like everyone else.
And so while I plan to share my own tips and pointers along the way — I also want to share the stories of those who are on this journey with me — including your own stories.
Feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or submissions.
Thanks for reading!
