Time to Simplify!

Written by Angela Atkinson

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” Hans Hofmann

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” Henry David Thoreau

This morning during my meditation, something interesting occurred to me. As I’m going through this journey of self discovery and positive life changes, there is still much work to be done. One major issue I need to focus on is simplifying my own world. While I have made some strides in this area, one place I need to focus is eliminating unnecessary things from my life–like clutter. I’m not talking filth here, I’m talking about having TOO MUCH stuff and not enough places to stash it all.

Having a family of five will certainly keep anyone busy, and I’m no exception. Even as I type this, I’m having a conversation with my five year old and making faces at my baby. This type of “complication” is welcome and expected, of course, but it doesn’t mean I can’t effect change in other areas.

Our homes are a reflection of ourselves, and mine is currently reflecting a bit of clutter. While I have struggled with clutter for most of my life, I find that when I’m able to whittle it down to a manageable level, I generally FEEL better.

This brings me to the point of today’s blog. In my effort to pursue my own fulfillment, it’s time to take the next step and eliminate some clutter from my home and thus my mind. So, today, I offer you a challenge, and I am taking it up myself.

Here it is: Eliminate extra clutter from your home and from your life. This might mean tossing out that stack of magazines in the bathroom (but don’t forget to recycle them!), or clearing off your desk. Maybe you’ll catch up on laundry or re-organize your kids’ wardrobes, pulling out things that no longer fit or damaged items. Maybe you just need to do your dishes. Whatever needs to be done in your home today, take a few minutes (or hours) to focus on it for a bit.

I think that focusing on the more “mundane” parts of life can sometimes be therapeutic for the soul anyway, but this one will have an added benefit of helping to clear your mind too. So here we go folks, let’s SIMPLIFY!

Learn it, live it, love it!
xoxo
