Have you made any New Year's resolutions yet? One of mine is to continue to live a simple and uncomplicated lifestyle. That's not always so easy to do in this day and age. I think that a simple lifestyle is more of a personal journey and that everyone's solutions to that journey are unique. What works well for one person or family may or may not work well for another. It's about finding a balance and learning how to be happy with what you have right now, this moment. To stop striving for more and open our eyes to see how much we are already blessed with.
What are some of the ways you like to have fun without spending much or any money at all? I love to walk on the beach with my husband and collect seashells, relax on the sand, take blog pictures of the beach or have an evening bonfire on the beach. We also like to imitate our favorite restaurant food at home and rent a Redbox movie, some times using a free rental code. We like to volunteer at our church soup kitchen every Friday night and sometimes my hubby plays guitar and we both sing worship songs for the people we help feed. We love to fellowship with the people at our church and when you help those in need, I think you receive something more in return. We also love to go to the library every week, you're never to old to learn something new and it's free! One of the main things I find fun, of course, is blogging!!!!! How did I ever get by before blogs were invented?
Have a very blessed 2012!
