what IS simple + good?

“it’s not simple because it’s easy”

A life that simple + good is built on a lot more than cleaning out your closet. It’s about getting in touch with yourself on a daily basis, knowing what you want and what you’re striving for, and taking the hard steps to get there. Once you know where you’re headed…even the most difficult of days will feel rooted in the simplicity of your strive towards goodness.

Below are the 5 main tenets of what make an S + G life:

THINGS THAT MATTER:

There are things that matter, and things that don’t. What do you care about? What holds meaning for you? What might be holding you back?

LETTING GO OF THE MILESTONE MENTALITY:

Have you ever felt like you’re falling behind? Do you often find yourself comparing your success with that of old friends and former classmates? It might be time to reevaluate your priorities…and accept that what’s meant for you will happen when it’s right.

KNOWING WHO YOU ARE:

Your identity doesn’t have to be streamlined – what makes you unique are the many facets of interests, talents, and circumstances that have led you to this moment. Embrace your quirks, and don’t fall victim to the pressure of branding yourself flawlessly.

LEARNING WHEN TO LISTEN:

Sometimes, we have to get quiet and let the world speak to us. It’s in this moments of silence + solitude that we meet ourselves. Simplicity feels closest to us when we don’t let everything else get in the way.

RECKONING WITH THE CREATIVE PATH:

So, you want to be a writer? Or a painter? Or make goat cheese and teach yoga? That’s AWESOME. The creative path is never easy, but it sure is full of intention. And living with an intention that’s rooted in passion? That’s the best kind of life there is.
