Welcome to The Joy of Simple
First off, let me just say how excited I am to be here. This blog will both reflect my thoughts on living a simple life and my experiences with living such a life, be they positive or not so positive (which does happen from time to time)!
I will include not only anecdotal information on my Joy of Simple, but also tips and hopefully, fun facts about what it is to live a full and simple life. I will also include, from time to time, posts about my city of choice, Montreal. I theoritically could live anywhere I want, but I choose Montreal and will tell you why in future posts.
WHY AND WHY NOW?
So why yet another blog on simple living and why now? Well, I am of the mind that if something is worth talking about, there can’t be enough voices out there. That’s the beauty of the Internet and the World Wide Web, it provides a level playing field for anyone to hop on board and add their own unique voice to what is already out there! I hope you will join me in the conversation
So that’s the why. The now is because I have wanted to do this for a few years but never felt “ready”. I still don’t feel ready, but I am doing it anyway, because as you all know, if you’re waiting for perfect, it never comes! So now is as good a time as any.
Please feel free to hang out and look around. If you can take anything away from this blog to begin your own path to simple living, let me know how it works out for you. Remember, one thing at a time and small steps is the way to go. All the best.
ps: If you are wondering why I titled my blog, The Joy Of Simple. it is a tongue-in-cheek play on a book title that was all the rage in the seventies (The Joy of _ _ _). More importantly though, it is how I truly feel about living a simple life, joyful. Hopefully you do as well.
