I find that while I can't control what goes on in the world outside my home, I can control what goes on inside my home. I can watch old time movies on DVD. I can look at pictures of where I grew up that were taken during a much nicer time in the world.
I can decorate my apartment as comfy and cozy as I like - which I am!
I don't have a television so I am only exposed to what is going on by what I see on Trending or when someone tells me.
I can read and pray more as what seemed to be the custom in days gone by.
Without living in the past, I can choose to live simply without a lot of technology. I have just enough to get by. I don't need all the latest gadgets nor do I have an interest in them. I prefer holding a real book or listening to an audio book instead of a reader. The book and audio book don't cause glare which makes my eyes hurt.
I have enough to get by and I'm happy with what I have. I am a minimalist. I don't like clutter.
All of us have the power within us to shape our lives, inside our homes, any way we choose to.
