Simplify Your Life
By Byron Pulsifer, 2007

There seems to be so little time to sit and read those countless nifty newspapers and magazines that role into our mailbox. In the past, when we received magazine ads in flyers, or saw some magazine that seemed interesting, we couldn't resist the allure to sign up. In the beginning, it was enjoyable to receive a new magazine in the mail and sit and read it for a few minutes in the evening.

But, with one magazine, came offers for more until we were unable to read anyone one of them fully. The best we seemed to do was quickly leaf through them and then set them aside in a pile. The intention was to return to the articles in the magazines that we really were interested in, but that didn't seem to happen with any regularity. Then, it seemed the magazines would come, be set aside without a glance because of little time, or lost interest.

We simplified our lives by canceling the majority of magazine subscriptions only keeping a couple of subscriptions with specialized topics that were more directive under one cover. What was once a nagging feeling to have to read magazines has now been simplified to just a few that we look forward to getting. Once these chosen few arrive in the mail, they are devoured with intense interest and enjoyment. We often add to our own pressure or stress in unknowing or unconscious ways. So, take a close look at something so simple, that is your newspaper or magazine subscriptions, and simplify your life by canceling what you don't need.

Find Reflections of Simplicity in these Short Verses and Poems:
As you simplify your life,
the laws of the universe will be simpler;
solitude will not be solitude,
poverty will not be poverty,
nor weakness weakness.
Henry David Thoreau

Our life is frittered away by detail...
simplify,
simplify.
Henry David Thoreau
