“Simplicity is the essence of happiness.” – Cedric Bledsoe
A lot of the complexity in our lives come when we try to keep up certain appearances.
A simpler, happier life can be achieved when we drop those appearances and just live naturally, without pretense.
Do we spend a lot on expensive clothes so we can impress our superiors or fancy a huge house, immense wealth, success, luxury car to show off to our neighbours or try to impress others with our knowledge?
Shaking off these pretenses, results in simplicity and we become more true to ourselves.
Learn to live a simpler, more natural life, and drop the pretenses one at a time. You’ll be glad you did as you will undergo self improvement and remain motivated and joyful everday irregardless of circumstances.
There are many ways you can live a simpler life in various areas. What areas have you changed by dropping pretenses? What areas would you like to change? Do feel free to share in the comments!
