I would rather have nothing, than have everything.


I would rather have nothing, than have everything.

I have always been a very simple person. Maybe sometimes too much so - but I would rather be too simple than too complicated. I am often a person of little words. In fact, on a day where I am not in the work place, I could speak 20 words the entire day and be perfectly content. 

This often leads some people to view me as aloof or to ask me if something is wrong, when in fact nothing is wrong at all. 

Simplicity bleeds over to other aspects of life as well. I have never needed much. I do not need anything fancy. I do not need (nor want) the most up-to-date things. I do not need the newest phone. I do not need the newest fashions (I do not think I have bought a new shirt in 3 or 4 years). 

In fact, I am not even comfortable having a lot. Perhaps that is because I never have. But I am damn thankful for that. 

I have always found there to be an inverse relationship between happiness and the amount of things that one has. 

Have you ever noticed that the happiest people seem to be the people who do not have much?

Have you ever noticed that the most giving people are those that have the least to give?

I feel more at home with those that have the least. 

I always will.

What are your thoughts on simplicity?
