I really want to simplify my life more. I have wanted to for awhile, but I was inspired by a short story I had to read for a class I have right now. One statement that really resonated with me was that the underprivileged “suffer for a lack of basic resources because of the hoarding, the feverish consumerism and the complete lack of concern by people who have more than they will ever possibly need (Loving Across the Boundry by Ann Filemyr).” I know that I could definitely do without more. So, my question is Where do I begin? What are a few small things that I could change? I figure if I just begin changing little by little it will be easier to accomplish and not seem so impossible. I also read about a Tibetan family somewhere that did not have a garbage can- they had no need for one, I know I could do better than how I'm doing now.
