Dear World

What if we made a start this year to Commit to Life in a different way?

In other words, knock out the nonsense that we know won’t work and lock in sensible stuff that if lived consistently, can bring about real lasting change that supports us.

Simple Living Global is a website dedicated to presenting another way to live.

With over 150 blogs there is something for everyone, the key is to consider what is being presented and give it a go.

  1. What an invitation to start afresh! and as you say Simple Living Global, everything to inspire and guide us is here on this website. So many blogs packed full of information and tools to Truly make changes that transform your life.

    Are we deep down happy with how our life is? are we vital and enjoying every day?

    I can’t express enough how the little changes made consistently in daily life, commitment, build to bring about lasting life transformation. It has worked for me… and continues to do so.

  2. Things I have noticed in January so far this year:

    – Most of the office is alcohol free, doing ‘dry January’

    – People lamenting being (1) back to work (2) broke

    – Ambitious plans for the year ahead abound, some lamenting good intentions already missed

    – Flu symptoms, people off work or struggling on

    – Complaints about the pace, questioning how they were keeping up before the Christmas break

    – Talk of working abroad or going on more holidays

    – Lots of new gym memberships, diets and and excercise programmes

    – Increased intensity all around

    This blog offers a wise invitation to consider where we are going and what we are choosing, this month, for the whole year.

    The offering is to start simple, with a commitment to how we live and build up from there.

  3. A ‘new’ year with the month January signifies a new beginning, a fresh start.

    How many of us are truly able to make a fresh start?

    There is a great blog on this website called Closing Cycles.
    https://simplelivingglobal.com/closing-cycles/

    Having put what is presented in Closing Cycles into practice I have found that this January it really is a fresh start for me as I am living in a new home and am due to start a new job.

    There is no sense of any baggage, or anything left or undealt with.

    There have been many cycles and situations that I have brought closure to in the previous year and so January is all about going forward to grow and expand with no regrets.

    What if this way of living is available for us all, free of charge but it takes commitment and consistency in our daily lives to close those cycles so that we can have the new beginning that we all long for?

    What if it is not difficult at all or hard to close cycles?

    What if to have truly new beginnings we have to let go of all pictures of how we want things to be?

    What if we are asked to put no demands on how the new beginnings are to be – where we should live, work, how much money we should have in the bank, etc.

    What if the quality of our new beginning is all determined by how we completed things previously?

    What if our future and the year ahead is in our hands, but it is set by how we have been with everything and everyone in the previous year?

    What if there is no such thing as bad luck, but that we are the creators of how our year ahead will be?

    Would this then make us more responsible with how we live our daily lives?

  4. I was talking to a colleague this week who mentioned how she felt in the month of January.
    She said it was the worse month for her as she is short of money, struggling to decide what her new resolutions would be and she felt pressured to lose weight.

    This is one of many people I have spoken to, who feel this way.
    Where does this come from? Does the Christmas celebrations trigger something within us to go crazy on shopping and getting into the festive mood But once that disappears and we move into January, we realise deep down it was not right in the first place.

    For me January is like any other month and it is business as normal.
