Day 3119 – One Of My Secrets To Reading A Lot

Last night, I realized one of my secrets to reading more – a comfy place to read. Since Bret was out and not using the other chair, I created the reading boat, and stuffed it full of blankets and pillows. I read a delightful book about introverts too.

As I’ve said before, my word this year is No. I say no to a lot of things. This quote came up in my travels yesterday, and I really think it applies.

The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything. – Warren Buffett

A lot of my success and personal growth has come from being able to say no, and not feeling bad about it. (lol, it’s been a looooonnnnnggggg process).

So, I said no to more work (it was getting pretty late in the day), I said no to playing games or watching TV, and I cuddled up, and caught up on some reading.

Day 2751 – One Year With Our Chairs!

One year ago today, we were waiting for a big snow storm. It was also the day our amazing chairs arrived! We have watched countless hours of movies together in these chairs, played wayyyyyy too many hours of video games, read thousands of pages and enjoyed many cups of coffee together in these chairs. I just love these chairs (affiliate link to buy our chairs)! These guys have helped us continue our minimalist life and will go with us on our next journey, I’m sure. One thing I’ve learned living a minimalist life is that you really love the things you do have because you have been purposeful in keeping things.
