I recently came across this blog post, titled “It’s ok to be happy with a quiet life“. It really struck a chord. I’m working part-time now, and I spend a lot of my time pottering about reading, doing crafts or gardening. I also watch a lot of films, listen to a lot of music and loll about! I am ok with this. It suits me, and I’m happy not to be rushing from one project to the next. All I’m asking for in life is a worthwhile job (which I have), and time to spend how I want. I don’t want more. I guess I’m pretty much a modern hippy. I reject consumerism for the most part and just want to play!
As you know, I love ogling at workspaces! Here is a handy post of 40 workspaces of famous creative people. It’s so fun to have a nose in people’s homes! When you’ve finished looking at that, you should also check out this tiny house. It’s only 7 feet wide, and it is so cleverly designed inside!
This post made me chuckle. I’m not a hipster (I’m pretty sure no one is questioning this given my lack of coolness!), but this post suggests that’s probably a good thing. Have a little read and a giggle. P.S. I’m so glad I don’t share food photos or wear jeans. Haha.
On a more serious note, Kanalt wrote this. It is exactly how I feel. I have never wanted kids and still have no interest in them. I like other people’s children, but I certainly don’t want my own. I do feel that society is undergoing a shift in opinion on this: more people are accepting of the decision not to have kids, although there are still many who feel this decision is wrong.
The title of this post is “9 mind-bending epiphanies that turned my world upside down“, and David (the author) isn’t lying. Read this post, think about this post and your life will never be the same again. Number 1 (“You are not your mind”) is a key idea in many schools of happiness psychology, as is number number 4 (“Most of life is imaginary”). Consider the ideas, and improve your quality of life.
Are you looking for a new sewing project? This seems like a very worthwhile craft project.
To finish with, this is so true:
