Summary

Summary

How much is enough? What matters most? Is it possible to live simply while earning a living? How do I balance family, self and career? These are some of the questions many people are contemplating today. In Simple Days, Marlene Schiwy shares her journey toward living a simpler life in a journal that she kept over the course of a year looking for answers to these questions. She shares her reflections on paying attention to what matters most and looking more closely at where our lives are heading. Unique among books on simple living. Simple Days is not a how-to manual, nor a list of shortcuts to a simpler life. Rather it helps illuminate the path to simplicity, not by giving all-purpose answers but by sharing Marlene's believable experiences and encouraging readers to ponder the questions in their own lives.
