I 'STUMBLED UPON' THIS POST AT 'LIVE THE CHARMED LIFE' AND I LOVED IT SO MUCH, I JUST HAD TO SHARE IT! It begins... You see, when we’re born we see the world in an uncomplicated way. We know what we need, and we ask for it. We like nice people, and we don’t like mean people. We sleep when we’re tired, we eat when we’re hungry, and we stop eating when we’re full.
Mozambique based illustrator Alex Noriega loves drawing, reading and drawing even more. Alex was born and raised in Barcelona, went to Llotja, an art and illustration school also in Barcelona. After finishing school, he worked odd jobs and eventually landed a job as an illustrator in a fashion company. Finally, the call to blog got to him. He says, At some point in 2010 I was going through a crisis due to some issues at work, so I decided to start this blog as a way of trying to find what I was doing wrong.
I’ve been striving to simplify my life for many years now, and have recently (through my writing) been advising others how to do the same. In the process, I’ve learned that making little changes in our attitudes, habits, and environment can have a big impact. So today, I thought I’d compile a list of 100 ways to simplify your life – from the practical to the philosophical, and everything in between.

If you’re married or in a serious relationship, you’re no stranger to the phrase, “I love you.” You can say those 3 little words to your partner one million times, but we all know that it has to be followed up with action. Showing love isn’t an exact science. We all speak different , so you may show love in a way that your spouse doesn’t understand (and vice versa). Well, it doesn’t have to remain that way. Happy couples’ love for each other and dedication to the relationship lead to many adjustments in the way they show love to each other.
