The Luxury of Simplicity.

Here is some food for thought. If everything that we consider a necessity was truly the necessary things to survive, and we took away all of the so called luxuries in life… Would we not only be defining true necessity but also true luxury. In fact, in simplicity there is a kind of luxury greater than any leather seated car or newest gadget to improve your life. In simplicity is luxury.

 

As it is better said by this quote. Luxury is really more of a state of mind than something that is bought with a bundle of green.And while I think we do still need to take time and money aside to buy useless things that make us happy, because that is good for us in a different way, I still am a firm believer in the luxury of simplicity.

Luxury is in each detail.

Without the clutter and chaos of all the ” luxuries” in life, one may find themselves surrounded instead by the nature ” luxuries”. The little things around us that make life beautiful and an continual, joyous endeavour. That is the simplicity in life itself that I adore, and that is a luxury I can get on board for.

  1. I absolutely love this post, and I agree. Many people seem to be replacing ‘living’ with ”having,’ and it-s depressing. A couple of years ago I gave up nearly everything I owned because I was moving into a tent a couple of hundred miles away, to do a seasonal job for the summer. When I came back I had to start again. I sofa-surfed for six or seven months before I got somewhere to live. Now I’m careful about what I fill my space with (I haven’t even got a TV, because they’re distracting), I’m so much happier than before, and that kind of ‘safe’ homelessness was an educational experience.

    1. Wow that sounds like a life changing journey. I wish that someday I am able to do a similar thing. For me, there is a lot of fear with it all, but I know it would be such a beautiful and rewarding experience especially after hearing your story. Thanks for sharing that with me. 🙂

      1. From one of the wisest books ever written. ” We are all mad here.”- Mad Hatter & ” I am not crazy, my view is just different from yours.”-The Chestshire Cat.
        Diversity makes us a beautiful picture when we come together instead of staying alone as our separate pieces. And those who don’t understand should at least respect and love what is different in you from them.
