At the end of the day and for 12 years of being a city dweller since the year 2000, the simple life I had lived in the province for 17 years is what I still want amid all the comforts of urban living. A simple life that offers true wonders in many forms like the beautiful views of nature I see around upon opening the windows when I wake up in the beautiful morning and the laid-back way of life. A simple life is what defines real contentment and happiness for me.
The few pictures and quotes below will tell you more about what I am trying to put across.
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter … to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~ John Burroughs
Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language, and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things. ~Elise Boulding
