I Don’t Need Much

When life is simple, I don’t need much to live.

I don’t need much to pursue my passion. A cup of coffee, a place to write, and my thoughts tumbling onto the page will do just fine.

I don’t need much to cultivate meaningful relationships. A friendly companion, a full-belly sunset, and a good conversation sound just right to me.

I don’t need much to live a healthfully. Daily exercise, healthy foods, and plenty of breathing while walking keeps me feeling alive.

I don’t need much to contribute to others. A day at a soup kitchen, an afternoon with Habitat for Humanity, and some advice for a troubled friend goes a long way.

I don’t need much to grow. Daily action, small incremental changes, and a commitment to constantly improve my life will keep me growing.

I don’t need much to live a meaningful life. And neither do you.
