to live simply...

...can mean different things to different people. To me, it means creating a life filled with experiences and memories - not things. Somehow through my 7 years of living away from mom and dad, I have collected a lot of clutter - clothes, furniture, books, memorabilia, etc. It's nothing like Hoarders bad or anything. But I still want to part with the items that I no longer need, so I can move on to a simpler life.

to love generously... my opinion is to not only tell your family/friends/spouse that you love them but to also show them. It doesn't have to be a grand gesture. Something small, such as a card in the mail to a loved one that is far from home or helping out around the house to make someone's day less stressful will most likely mean a lot to that person. Besides, it is the little things that make life as sweet as a peach ;)


to learn constantly...

... let me begin by saying this: I love learning! But I hate school. (And also disagree with the entire education system in the United States, but that is a topic for another day.) I am constantly trying to teach myself about new topics or learn new skills. I think continual learning is a necessity for a well-balanced, happy life. And learning doesn't have to be limited to reading textbooks or listening to lectures. Learning is as simple as going out in the world and seeing new places or talking to a person about their perspective on a certain issue. There is so much to learn in this world that I crave to be learning constantly!
