Simplicity Update

IF this is the only 'simplifying' I achieve this year - it was worth it :)

Did you realise a quarter of the year is gone already! Yikes.

This spells trouble for my new year's resolution.

For some reason I'm still thinking it's like the begining of the year.

Plenty of time, the year's only just begun, except it's heading towards half over!!

So how am I doing with my simplicity resolution?

At first I felt like I've done nothing. NOTHING! Nothing feels simple to me!

But when I thought about it I have:

cleaned and organised my own wardrobe and the linen cupboard
trying to cook simpler meals
reasearching how to make my own bread by hand
decluttered a few things around the house
focused on simple yet fun tuesday afternoon outings with the girls
going to bed earlier

So I thought it might be a good idea for me to post on the last day of each month, what it is that I have done/attempted to do that month in my quest for simplicity.

I think it will be a good way to get myself moving and check my progress.

Follow along it you want and feel free to suggest some simplifications!

Sometimes in the humdrum of life we can forget the one thing that keeps us going, the pause.

Pause to reset
Pause to rest
Pause to contempate
Pause to relax
Pause to get control
Pause to relize what matters
Pause to think
Pause to..... Pause.

Simplicity is knowing what to do and doing it, rather than letting it do us..

Look at how you paused. decided to change and acted. It is that simple. Your an inspiration to us all.
