Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features an article on the difference between happiness and pleasure, a podcast by The Minimalists on how to challenge the norms of traditional living, and much more. Enjoy!

This is what it feels like to enter a flow state with writing. Except, of course, without the bike, the great outdoors, and serious potential for physical injury.

“Scratching an itch is a route to pleasure. Learning to productively live with an itch is part of happiness.”
I Wasn’t a Born Saver, Here’s How I Learned
“Real independence means having the ability to do things on your own terms. And that costs money. Saving money doesn’t mean I’m depriving myself; it means I’m going to get something even better in return. The freedom to do what I want is worth so much more than spending money on a forgettable brunch.”

“We want to live minimally because it frees us up to accomplish things that go beyond ourselves.”
The Relationship Between ‘Talk’ and ‘Work’ Is That One Kills The Other
via Ryan Holiday
“It’s never been easier to talk, to distract ourselves, to puff ourselves up. We can brag about our goals online to our fans and followers—things only rock stars and cult leaders used to have.”
Tiny House Living is a Dream Come True
via Two Cup House
“Downsizing meant that we could be debt free years or decades faster than in the “big house” days. Of all the benefits of tiny house living, this is my favorite; I feel far more secure without the debt looming over us.”
My Favorite Podcast
Podcast 99 | Breathe
In this podcast The minimalists address some hard-hitting questions, including:
- How do I reconcile many of the traditional goals I grew up with—corporate career, marriage, children, home ownership, etc.—with the tenets of minimalism I now follow?
- What advice do you have for recent college graduates who are graduating with mountains of debt and molehills of prospects?
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂

Thanks so much for the share, Zach! Love what you’re doing with Four Pillar Freedom. I really feel like in order to truly simplify your life you’ve got to get a grip on your finances as well. It’s all so very connected.
Not a problem, Britnee! It was a great article, I was happy to share it. I just discovered your site fairly recently and I’ve been exploring it quite a bit. You’re producing some great content, keep up the good work 🙂
