I really like this y’all. I have never been into the writing of New Year’s Resolutions. They always seem to disappoint or frustrate because you never end up keeping most of them. So this year I decided to keep trying to be a better person. That’s it. Full stop. I’ve been trying to make a very conscious effort to find a little more balance and to simplify my surroundings. My boyfriend constantly feels I have these “piles” of things here, things there. Which maybe I do, but maybe I don’t. I know where everything is but I also know that I have too much stuff.
Trying to disconnect from the internet world is a biggie for me. Too much time spent on the computer with being dragged into a post on Facebook or a YouTube video that leads to more videos or all those fantastic ideas that I rarely look at again on Pinterest. Even just checking things – your email, your bank account, your credit cards, your blog! Let’s try to step back from these and make more time for you. Maybe meditate, maybe a bike ride, maybe some lovely quiet time to read a book. All of those latter ideas sound so much better than than the former. Right?
When I saw this post, the 30-Day Minimalism Chart on the blog Into Mind, I knew this was awesome. Sign me up. “30 one-day assignments to help you dip your toes into minimalist living, discover lots of new things about yourself and get a big head start.” I am going to print this out and do one assignment a day, in no particular order but never to skip a day. Who is with me?
