less is more

lately taylor and i have been focusing on
living within our means
for us this means
being more green
and re-using when we can
(as well as recycling-of course)
i've even made the switch to all green household products
most are filled with yucky toxins that make us sick
no good
i stumbled upon this quote
and was so inspired
i wanted to share it will all of

"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable,
and wealthy, not, rich;
to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages,
with open heart;
to study hard;
to think quietly,
act frankly,
talk gently,
await occasions,
hurry never;
in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious,
grow up through the common - this is my symphony. "
