As many of the readers of Simple Life Reboot know, our journey to a simpler, more fulfilling life, began in the Spring of 2013. (see: The Trip that Changed Everything) But before we “changed everything”, the over-arching feeling had been that we never had enough, enough money, enough time, enough of anything. Our solution had always been to wor ...…

“If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them and half as much money.” – Abigail van Buren My Uncle Russ once told me about a neighbor who sent his son over to ask if he could wash his car.

Daily we stand against the tide, the relentless negative forces of human nature that work to bring us down. The challenge to be better, and do better, is never ending, and ever present, in each of our lives. How do the 7 deadly sins; wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony, play against the simplicity lifestyle? Does living with si ...…

Have you had this experience? You start out strong, buoyed by the excitement of a new challenge and the promise of better things to come.

It can happen ...…

Nimbleness is the ability to pivot, to adapt to new circumstances and keep moving. It is achieved, primarily, through the creation of margin in our lives.

I wanted to edit it out. In our 67th episode, Interview with Mom, we asked if she had learned anything from observing our Simple Life Reboot journey.
