I crave simple, yet I add more to my life. It makes no sense. However, I have a new plan (does that count as adding something new, since my plan is actually to be reducing?) that will help to simplify my world. I wrote about it in my Drop in the Bucket List post and it’s pretty simple in and of itself. All I have to do is get rid of one thing each day. Simple concept, isn’t it?
So far I’m overachieving because I’m excited to be clearing things out, so the first day I got rid of two pairs of shoes and yesterday I boxed up 15 or more purses (how embarrassing!). I’m sure I will slow down as I get further into the year, but I have to tell you that it feels WONDERFUL and I’m very excited by the potential to clear out stuff. I don’t view myself as a hoarder (other than apparently of purses…and maybe yarn), and our house isn’t over run with junk or knick knacks, but we have more than we need. And, like I said at the beginning, I’m craving simplicity and just less.
Now you may be wondering why I’m going on about this since I already put it in my previous post. No, I’m not just bragging about how well I’m doing at getting rid of stuff. I got to thinking after hearing peoples’ comments and responses (both on here and in real life), that maybe others would like to join me in this quest for less. So, I’ve made a little badge that you all can post on your site if you’re joining me in my 365 Days to Simplicity… or, if you don’t have a site , you can print out the yet-to-be-determined cute little badge and pin it on your shirt. :) …Clearly, at this point you will no longer be doing a full 365 Days, but you can start late and I won’t tell anyone. Tell your friends. Link back to here so they can join us or leave a comment.
To add the button (badge?) to your site:
Copy this code and paste it into an HTML widget (called a Text box on WordPress) or into your blog using the HTML setting.
Copy and paste the code below into an image widget
then link it to this address:
Let me know if you get stuck… we can do this!
