What I value in life is quality rather then quantity.
January 24th - quality versus quantity
Don’t use a lot where a little will do.
At this point in my life I’ve learned that quality of life is far better than quantity of life.
More and more though, I see people desiring just the opposite. Wanting more and enjoying it less. I cannot for the life of me get their reasoning behind it. What good is having more things, if you cannot enjoy them.
Choosing quality over quantity consistently makes me happier. Having stuff means maintaining stuff. I now have much less than I did and plan to have even less than I do now and I’m a happy camper. For years, I had the job of decluttering hanging over me. It was one task that I was eager to get rid of. I was not eager to embrace the reasons behind what caused this major change in plans, but I’m thankful I now own a lot less stuff.
Choosing quality over quantity means spending as much of your time as possible doing what makes you happy. It seems that it’s quantity that is consistently rewarded in our society. More money, more bedrooms, more horsepower, more years, more accomplishments. We have been conditioned to strive for more. But time and time again, I’ve found that more does not bring happiness.
The truth of the matter is that we spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; we've added years to life, not life to years.
There is a lot of joy to be had in having just enough.
We don’t need to increase our goods nearly as much as we need to scale down our wants. Not wanting something is as good as possessing it.
