One of the things that is most pertinent in what comes to my beliefs is that simplicity leads to a place of calm and peace. I like having a comfortable life and am thankful for the things the universe has provided me, but I am also a believer that when your life becomes a reflection of what you have, then this spells disaster.
At the end of the journey (or the beginning of a new chapter), I still take nothing I can hold or carry. All I will take is the memory of my loved ones and the moments we shared together. So I decided to start a practice of simplicity. I am downsizing my life and stop holding on to things so tight.
The first things I want to tackle are the ones hardest for me: the food and the exercise. I love to eat, including all the stuff that's not good for me. And I am a well known and respected couch potato. I am not sticking to any strict diet, but day by day, meal by meal making smarter choices what goes into my body... and how I treat it.
