The last few days the simplicity of life when I lived in my van has been on my mind and while I much prefer my living situation now (mainly because it's with my girlfriend), I feel restless. I don't want space from her, I want us both to be able to live simply yet fully making the world a better place. There are so many things that could be done right here in our country to help people be healthier and happier never mind impoverished parts of the world. My hopes for the world are probably naive and will lead to disappointment but if someone doesn't try to make a change then it's not going to happen magically.
It's amazing how one experience can adjust your priorities and mindset. Now it's just a matter of making plans with my other half and putting it in action. In the mean time, this article has some great ways to be involved for good.
