31 Days of Simplicity: Day OnePosted: October 1, 2012
Y’all. Life is complicated. Relationships, politics, religion. All big things that tend to be a little harder to deal with. So why, oh why, do we further complicate it with stuff? I have so many clothes I can’t decide what to wear. My pantry is overflowing with food, yet I still go buy more. I keep things I don’t need (or even want!!) because of “one day” or for sentimental reasons.
For the next 31 days, I’m going to document what this looks like for me. Because honestly, I have no idea. I know I will be getting rid of “stuff.” But it’s more than just physical things. I’m also going to clearing out the emotional, psychological “stuff.” Stuff I don’t need. Stuff I don’t want. Stuff that is taking up precious space in this little life that I have.
So for the next 31 days, I’m going to be getting rid of and cleaning out. Making room to live and making room for what I really want out of life.
I’m excited. (Well, really more scared than excited, but I’m just going to “fake it til I make it.”)
