live simply, simply live

Present Path is about exploring how and what it means to live presently and simply.

Living presently means is the process of bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment non-judgementally.

Living simply, for me at least, is living with enough. Sufficient, adequate, ample, abundant, as much … as necessary. It’s not always easy to define what is ‘enough’ and enough will mean different things to different people at different times. Living simply is not an end goal, it’s a continual lifestyle that sways between too little and too much.

All advice is autobiographical therefore I can only speak from my experience. This blog is a reflection of how I want to live my life. You may read it for inspiration, entertainment or to satisfy your own confirmation bias. That said there are many, many ways to live your life. I find this to be the one that allows me to be the most present. I don’t judge others for how they live (well I do, but I’m trying to work on that!). There’s no right or wrong, no good or bad, better or worse, simply different.

My name is Tom and when not writing I enjoy finding my balance in ballet class or being upside down in downward-dog, travelling the world, meeting great people, museums, rooftops, spending most of my money on books, drinking good coffee, impulsive promenades swiftly followed by getting lost and not knowing where the time goes.
