I'm a girl that is satisfied and happy with a simple life...

...why is it that these days nobody believes this? Everyone thinks I'm making fun of them when I say that. I don't need much to be happy.
Everyone wants to be rich, successful, hot or famous to be happy, but that is not necessarily happiness.Ask famous or rich people! How many of them get suicidal because "their life is/was hard" or get hooked on on drogs or alcohol or sex as they cant handle their "exciting and happy rich life".
So this isn't a warranty for happiness, no matter how much you'd want to believe that.

I was born in a simple family (not poor that is true, my parents always took care that we have everything needed, but didn't pampered us from principle, not because they couldn't and they did well) and I think that this was more then enough for us to have a happy childhood, have fun, make friends and learn.
I look at kids nowadays: their vacation is fashionable only their parents take them to an exotic holiday and buy them a lot of unnecessary but "cool" stuff.
We didn't care that much about holidays and stuff (ok, maybe we did like barbie dolls, cars and cartoon hero dolls a bit), but friends and the possibility to explore the outside world was so much more fun and educational. I don't want see what kind of adults these kids will grow up to be...

Btw this post was inspire by an IKEA bedroom (it's amazing from where inspiration comes sometimes :P). More specifically, this one:

I was thinking when I saw this: "How cute and simple! This would be enough for a college or rented room. ok, maybe I would by an extra drawer, but basically this is enough for starters".
As long as you have your hope, dreams and you're not ashamed or lazy to work, the rest will come with time. Stuff come and go, so don't get attached to them. I realised that a long time ago, since I started moving a lot as I couldn't carry all my stuff around with me everywhere I went. Most of my stuff I have are still stored at home in my old room.

Oh, in case I haven't told you about this: i have stashed of articles on different themes: home, fashion, health, interesting articles, beauty, etc..
This is my "home folder" for example:

I gather all kind of pictures and articles that I love from magazines, brochures, internet, etc. This is where I found the room from IKEA that is above.
I am also a huge Ikea fan. Simple, affordable and very practical. Also, very versatile. The company and the furnishing product lines give you a huge range of ideas, support and a lot of room to juggle with them.
just look at these rooms:
