I saw this on Pinterest and followed all paths to The Culture Trip's post.
At first I'm all: I can make my own challenge! I can forge my own path!
Then, as I looked at the list, I thought: I'd like to do that. That sounds useful. Hmmmm....
So, I'm going to do this for the month of January. I like that each day's task/challenge is do-able. We're not packing everything we own into boxes or folding our underwear in origami shapes or running a mile for every year we've been alive.
Seriously. People do that.
I can't say this list is really about minimalism, tho. It seems more about slowing down, focusing and being intentional, even if that intention is directed toward our sock drawer.
I'm good with that.
I'll report back, daily if I'm killing it, weekly if I'm hanging by a thread.
Here's to another year, a clean slate and a fresh start.
(I know it's not really any of those things....but doesn't it feel good to say it?)
Seven misconceptions about retirement and the temptation to put off until then all of the dreams we have now.
Why, after falling in love with the library all over again, am I quitting it now?
The form of moving meditation I use to quell anxiety and slow....down.
Per the minimalism challenge I began in January, I wrote down my last 5 purchases and really thought about whether or not they were valid.
But then the pangs hit again....is it right to thrust my minimalist sensibilities onto my children?
Thoughts on gift-giving this holiday season and my list of 5...
Maybe the best gift we can give someone is simply honoring that person's request to keep it simple.
