Slowing Down

September 27, 2010


One of the biggest hurdles in my quest to simplify my life’s inputs and outputs is my difficulty with living in the present.  There always seems to be a place I need to be or a chore I need to do.  My mind is constantly organizing, analyzing, and strategizing my next move.  This affects me […]

Every Day Difficulties

September 15, 2010


My world is full of distractions.  I have worked very hard to minimize them and re-focus my attention on only positive and productive things, but…it’s very hard!  It really should not be and I understand my own hypocrisy in writing an on-line blog about being disconnected from the mainstream.  I get it, I promise.  This […]

Advantages of the Single Life

September 7, 2010


This year has been very important in my life.  I have been very successful in improving my living situation, my health, my relationships, and I am also finding more productive ways to spend my extra time.  I don’t think this would be possible if I was dating someone.  For the moment, I am grateful to […]
