So, have I simplified my life?
I am trying to summarise my progress here - and I have made progress. By thinking through some issues one at a time through blogging about them over nearly four years, I have come to my own solutions to some ethical and practical dilemmas which nagged me and made me anxious and stressed.
I have realised that I don't need to save the world, but I do need to make a difference. (By being informed enough to make ethical choices where I can.)
I have accepted that it's hard to be simple in a complex world, but decided that doesn't mean I shouldn't try. (By asking for example 'Is there a simpler way to do this?' and doing it.)
I have decided that it's worth taking the time to get things simple and right, then sticking to it (clothes, home, routines).
I have made a conscious decision to focus on the good news, while of course being aware of the bad - how could you not in today's world - but not to dwell on things I cannot change and to change the things I can.
I have tried to be content with what I've got (shopping at home, living well with less).
If you are also trying to live simply what would you add?
