Live Simply

I love this. Plain old grassroots advice about the elements of life that have been shown to brings us the most satisfaction. De-cluttering, not caring so much about accumulating stuff, being grateful for what we have, dreaming about the future and choosing to enjoy the journey no matter how challenging….all part of contentment and wellbeing.

One of the things I love about the people we are working with in the Pacific is their ability to live this way with very little. Limited opportunity, choice and exposure to the outside world, yet they are for the most part, happy and grateful for what they do have.

It is so gratifying to make a difference to their world and see the pure joy from receiving a way through their situation.

I have really enjoyed hearing about some of the girls’ enterprising parents this week and their ideas about small businesses they can start with your support…selling fish, sewing, producing honey, all ideas for becoming self-sufficient.

A sense of gratitude leads to generosity. I am so grateful for a healthy, talented daughter with opportunities to pursue whatever she chooses, I love being able to help facilitate the same thing for the girls we support.

Warmly,

Jane and the a Girl & her world team
