“We don’t need to increase our goods nearly as much as we need to scale down our wants. Not wanting something is as good as possessing it.” – Donald Horban

When we discuss scaling down we immediately think of “stuff”- all those material possessions we have accumulated in life.  However, what else can we simplify besides our material possessions? How about our thoughts?  Our beliefs?  Our outlook on the universe?

Start now by taking time to analyze your daily thoughts and beliefs. Are they serving you? If not, how can you make some changes that will benefit you right now?

Scale down to happiness.

Yard Work-

See the tree across the street with all the vines growing up it.  All of mine USED to be covered just like that!

Found a bunch of bones in the yard.  They are now sun-bleached and ready for….something!

All the extra wood from the trees I had to cut down is stacked and ready for future bonfires.  The extra wood from the house build is also stacked and ready to be made into vegetable gardens in that very spot.

Don’t forget to enjoy each present moment and work to scale down your life to happiness!
