The gift of simplifying your life.

It’s a good hurt; that feeling you get when your arms are so tired you can barely hold your coffee. It’s a good hurt because you know why you’re achy- you’ve been simplifying your life.

I’ve been cleaning out closets, pitching, donating and organizing “stuff” for two weeks.  I’ve made tough decisions about things we’ve collected by asking this simple question: “You really wanna dust this off again?”

I even dragged our old 9 1/2 foot Christmas tree to Goodwill and got a smaller one.

 I’m completely motivated by the concept of an empty drawer.

The more I clear away, the more I find myself..

what’s important to me,

who I used to be, who I am today and want to be tomorrow.
