Less

It always feels like there is so much to do. Where will I find the time? I wake up feeling overwhelmed often with the amount of things that I feel I have to do and the lack of free (read: alone) time to do it. Perhaps what I need is not more time but fewer things to do.

Part of my vision for what I want to achieve with simplifying our lives is fewer things to take care of and fewer things on my to-do list. I mean really, if there are 20 toys to pick up 7 times a day that has to take less time than 80 toys to pick up 7 times a day, no? If I have 1000 square feet of house as opposed to 2000, that has to mean less time cleaning, no? Fewer dishes, less dishwashing? Fewer clothes, less laundry? Fewer random things, less constant organizing? Less debt, less worries? Less meaningless responsibility, more free time? Yup. That sounds promising.

  1. That’s certainly one way of doing this. Our friend Vicki Robin wrote a best seller some years ago titled Your Money or Your Life which changed the minds of many people – more isn’t always more.

  2. I just bought a book called “hands free mama” – haven’t read it yet but I follow her blog and I think it would be right up your alley πŸ˜‰ it’s my goal … Will take a while but we’ll get there. πŸ™‚

    • I follow her too and think she is wonderful and inspiring. I could never be completely off technology but really have been striving to be in the moment as much as I can be. xo

    • I know! Did you read my “It’s Simple” post? That’s pretty much what it’s about. I have been on a slow mission to minimize and simplify and I feel so good with every step I take πŸ™‚
