“No matter how bad you want things to happen right now, sometimes later is better” ~Christine Sternfels
To live a simple life… practice patience. It’s in God’s time, not ours. It’s difficult to be patient, but to suffer the consequences of haste is usually worse.
“Don’t take the daily simple pleasures in life for granted. They are the moments you can enjoy at little or no cost, effort or sacrifice” ~Christine Sternfels
To live a simple life… find the time to enjoy a cup of tea. Take this time to soak in the silence, peace and quiet and to reflect on the abundant blessings you have in your life.
The little money I have – that is my wealth, but the things I have for which I would not take money, that is my treasure. ~Robert Brault,
I cannot always agree that money can’t buy you happiness.
It does pay for gas when I want to go to the beach. It allows me to donate to charities with great causes. It allows me to take a vacation, giving me quality time with my family. It gives me peace of mind when I can pay the mortgage, groceries and the electric bill. It allows me to get a massage after working 60 hours a week for months. It is a big part of survival so I try to be good to it, because it is good to me. The key is its role. I don’t make it the most important part of my life but I know I need it to survive. To live a simple life… have a budget and do your best to stick to it. Respect your money.
