The Joys of a Quiet Life

Dear Wonderful Reader,

We live in a society the promotes MORE, BIGGER as such they are the sign of success and true happiness. Yet all we end up with is debt, unmet expectations, and a longing for a time when life was simpler…quieter.

The Joys of a Quiet Life

  1. Becoming one with nature.
  2. Becoming acute to God/spirituality.
  3. Exploring yourself (freely from any external influence such as social media or the pressure to “fit in”, or to become a “people pleaser”).
  4. Spending quality time with family and friends (those selected few).
  5. Focusing on your goals/dreams.
  6. Having time for hobbies, imagination, and creativity.
  7. Spending money wisely on things that we need rather than what we want (liberating ourselves from measuring up to “The Jones”, buying the new “IT” thing on social media, or to fit in with a clique”). Also, by saving, we can have enough money to donate or help someone in need.
  8. Purpose: Growth: Joy. There is something alluring about realizing that we’re utilizing our resources and energy to its full potential for good that leads to feeling purposeful. Purpose flourishes to growth and growth yields joy.
  9. Less drama. 
  10. Peace of mind (which sounds really simple but as we get older and life’s problems start swallowing us, we realize how precious peace of mind is).

 

This serves as a very rough draft of this topic, I don’t think I have said all I wanted to say so stay tuned for more :).

I’m interested to know if a quiet life sounds attractive to you?

What’s the best thing about living a quiet life?

Do you disagree?

Happy First Day of Spring!

Oh, today is also International Day of Happiness!

What a cool coincidence (though, not sure if IHD falls on the same day every year, but do correct me if I’m wrong).

And can we just pause and appreciate the metaphorical significance of this!

Do something that makes you happy today and tell me about it!

-Love
