This Christmas season I have found my joy in less.
How did this blessfull journey begin? Like all things for me it started with a project.
I’m big on projects.
My wedding? Project with a capital P.
Feathering the nest? Multi level many moons project.
Pregnancy? A whale of a project!
Motherhood? Well other similar words like ‘project’ come to mind, ‘projectile’ for example…
My latest project is to get rid of ten things a day in the month of December by donating, re-gifting (with full disclosure), re-purposing or (and this is least desirable) throwing away.
And as my closets, pantry, garage and other nooks and crannies are emptied I can feel the shift in my being, the fullness that comes from less.
Less stuff means less time spent cleaning, organizing, arranging, or hiding it when company comes. Less time spent on stuff means more time spent on this:
What will I do once December is over? Will I keep getting rid of stuff? How will I know when I’m done?
I don’t know the answers to these questions. Yet.
But I do know that this is more than a project, this is the start of a journey. (Journey sounds way more sophisticated than project!)
Inspiration for the journey ahead:
