I feel bad for not sharing recently in my blog but so is life and what I often read from other bloggers, we just get tied up in our own little worlds. I have been busy basically just enjoying life, mostly because of the reading of great books and wonderful blogs and websites. This taking in of a new knowledge has been very eye opening and allowed me to truly understand that less is more.
These are my current goals
-Getting my finances on track completely and being focused on wish spending while maximizing my savings percentage of take home income.
– Decluttering our home, selling the extra stuff in our lives and gradually working towards a simple minimal life
– Spend more time outdoors, being in the beauty of nature and what Vancouver Island has to share has been amazing. Great times with my family so far and I see so many more in our future.
– Continually staying positive, be grateful and use what simple Buddhism or Zen philosophies
The great books I have read lately that I think you will enjoy…

The biggest thing I can offer is fill your mind with a great selection of information, take what you can from it, set simple goals and just smile. Oh yeah, and go for a walk or bike ride right now!
