Safety Tips to Prevent Your Dream Pool from Becoming a Nightmare

Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

OUR DAILY PINS

Every day, we’re bombarded with messages to buy more, spend more, have more if we want our lives to be worth living. Let’s face it, today more IS more, and it seems like everyone we know is after a better car, a bigger house and more “bling.” But paring the stuff down to a minimum and living a simpler, less materialistic life has amazing rewards.

Think about it. Do you really need to be driving a more expensive car, or to live in a bigger house, or to have the latest grown-up toys everyone is talking about – that will most likely be out of date and need to be replaced with more expensive models in another year?

Or is what you really need time with your family? A moment to yourself? A mind free of fear and desire and envy and free to pursue what it wants?

By letting go of the need to have everything all the time, we free ourselves to think about what we really want, and to focus on what will truly bring us happiness. Maybe it’s to travel the world. Maybe it’s to start your own business rather than work for someone else. Maybe it’s as simple as enjoying a higher quality of life, with more time to spend the way you want to.

For me, achieving my dreams has been as simple of letting go of what I don’t need and focusing on what I want. Personally, I need to see the ocean. It calms me, it inspires me, it makes me happy. But I’m a single mother with 4 kids! Living in a big house would mean I would have to work constantly to pay the bills and probably wouldn’t even have a moment to enjoy the view. Instead, we all live together, sharing a one bedroom condo, one in San Diego and one in Miami. But I have my ocean view. And I also have the freedom to create my art, to work for myself, to operate my company from wherever I want and home school my youngest girls. That may not be your idea of bliss. But it works for me.

The question is, what will work for you?
