A month into this blogging and I guess I’m trying to refine my thoughts and direction. I sometimes feel pulled in all sorts of ways – should do this, should do that – and then end up in a heap of doubt and inactivity. Those other things are currently taking priority at the moment (like being the organiser of an international competition). This is why the posts are short. But I figure it’s better to be short than non-existent.

This morning I woke up knowing what I was looking for –¬†Simplicity. It’s what I’ve been striving for most of my life but often forgotten.

So – here’s an image that reminds me I can get rid of the things I don’t need.

although I did keep the kitchen sink!

 

PS. It’s also a great opportunity to try the “aside” post format for this theme.

      It certainly is a lot Leslie, I’m just now taking a deep breath and a slow exhale and seeing this as something to create over time rather than expecting it to be perfect immediately. Thanks for stopping by.

    It is a wonderful thing to simplify one’s life. I must have some deep seated insecurity because I always fear that as soon as I give something up I will need it. I am not a hoarder, but I probably have way too much stuff.

      You’re not alone Helen with that insecurity. I think that’s why I use my kitchen draw as some kind of proof that it’s possible to get rid of some stuff and not have the world fall down around me.

    I had the exact same thing when I started my blog. By reminding myself that blogging is a marathon not a sprint I’ve been able to stop getting overwhelmed.
    Love the photo I too need to remember that it’s okay to throw things away.

      Thanks Rosie -that’s a wonderful reminder. I’m much more into travelling slowly over distances than getting there and not enjoying the journey. So maybe I just have to see the “overwhelm” as just another stop along the way.
