Editor’s Note: Every Friday, I post a Simple Living News Update that includes links to some of my favorite articles of the week. In addition to the update, I answer a reader question via video.
The question . . .
“What inspires you?”
Here’s my response . . .
For those of you who can’t watch the video, read this post: 23 Ways to Capture Creativity. I wrote the post last year when I was searching for a little creative inspiration.
Now onto the news
“Living your truth embodies the art of marching to the beat of your own drum. It’s expressing yourself colorfully & uninhibitedly in everything you do, big or small.”
“It’s like we’re becoming human infomercials.
Okay, truthfully? The problem isn’t the techniques. The problem is, when everyone’s shouting, it’s all just noise.
There’s nothing wrong with some healthy self-promotion, if that’s your cup of tea. There’s nothing wrong with writing how-tos or running an exclusive coaching program or designing your website to encourage more signups.
And there’s certainly nothing wrong with positioning yourself as an expert, as long as you happen to be, you know, an expert.
But where’s the substance?”
“I have always loved hearing how minimalism works itself out in many different ways through many different lives. I love hearing how the idea of living with less is being embraced by others who, in turn, find more opportunity to live the life they always wanted because it. And I always enjoy hearing the background stories of others who have intentionally made the same decision.”
