"Happiness is more about subtraction than addition."

I am sure someone noted this before but a cursory google search did not come up with anything.  Others have said that "the soul grows more through subtraction rather than addition" which I would also agree with.  Fr. Richard Rohr, on a similar theme, explained that "We have nothing to learn from success after 30.  Failure is the real teacher."

I wish you happy subtracting this holiday season!

I like this blog. We moved to Manila one year ago and my life here has been a lot of subtraction from my life in the U.S. I agree the last year has been the most meaningful time in my life this far. Not always easy but deeper in so many ways.
