Several years ago our daily lives felt like they needed a change. I was reading more and more on the topics of Simple Living, Minimalism, Financial Independence and Mindfulness. All these readings had me realize that we I didn’t need to stick to the course and there was a new way of living out there waiting for us if we wanted it.
So we did.
In the fall of 2013 my wife and me along with our two children packed up our belongings and moved half way across the country to Vancouver Island on the west coast of British Columbia. In the process we downsized our home, our belongings and generally all the excess in our life. It is still a work in progress but we consulate work at optimizing our daily lives.
This new journey involves striving to inspire others, be mindful in my actions and to just let positive energy be my guide. With this in mind the blog posts will cover topics on personal finance, living simply and being aware of our consumer choices while saving aggressively for the future.
I will also touch on topics of mindfulness and how it can bring more happiness into your life. We will talk about finding the good in every situation to how to bring positive energy to your actions and those around you. A constant governing thought in how I guide myself will come up from time to time throughout my writing which is ;
Lastly, the biggest change with my new life has been discovering a passion for getting outdoors. To explore new and amazing places while reconnecting with the simplicity nature rewards us. You will find posts on my trips to remote mountain wilderness, scenic coastlines to lush forests while trying to be a steward for the environment. I will discuss topics on outdoor skills, experiences and sometimes gear reviews or recommendations.
I hope you find my website both enjoyable and helpful.
