Simplify Your Life

I always cherish my simple life, thanks to my parents for bringing me up that way. Thanks to my wife for sharing the same concept of life. We came from simple families. Alhamdulillah.
To my children, always appreciate little things and see big pictures. Grateful to what we own and what we do not own. We share what we have.
We live the simple life to the fullest!

Learn from our Prophet SAW and his great companions (as well as great persons around us). They are the best examples to follow. They are ahli syurga.

From Oprah..

As each day seems to bring more bad news about the economy, people around the country are learning tough lessons about their money. "Having the best things is no substitute for having the best life," Oprah writes in her What I Know for Sure column in the March 2009 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.

People with and without jobs are using our national financial crisis to get back to basics. Is it possible to live with less? What truly matters?

If you're in debt, one way to see what it's like to live with less is to take Suze Orman's three-step money pledge:
  • Don't spend any money for a day.
  • Don't use your credit card for a week.
  • Don't eat out in restaurants for a month.

Cherishing Your Treasure: A Crash Course in What to Keep
The motto at our organizing company, Order, is "Your space says everything about you." Have you considered what your physical space says about you? Take a moment to record what your environment looks like, using three adjectives to describe your feelings as you look at your space.

What does your space say about you?

What do you want your space to say about you?

In the Hindu faith, Ganesha, a playful elephantine character, is considered the remover of obstacles. He is the spirit that Hindus pray to before starting a new business, embarking on a trip, or making a purchase. His image is the first icon placed in the doorways of homes and restaurants, signifying good luck and new beginnings. In some depictions, a small rat, possibly representing those pesky obstacles, is visible under his foot as he strikes his proud pose.
