I started to read a book on minimalism for my book club and found the idea interesting and intriguing.
… now before we go much further, let’s get some stuff straight. I really love clothes and I’m pretty good at filling up my house with things that I think I “need.”
And I’m pretty good at the occasional purge,
The funny thing is looking at this picture I don’t even miss any of the clothes I donated. I haven’t given them a second thought ONCE and it was so hard to get rid of them.
but this is going to be a little more drastic.
They call themselves The Minimalists and here is the GAME!
So April 1st, here we are and this isn’t a joke. I’m going to purge (to Goodwill or to the next NakedLadyParty) items each day correlating to the number of the day. I also am not going to buy anything for the entire month of April with the exception of groceries and the eating / drinking out. Sure, I’ll go to a baseball game (it is close to opening day after all), but no buying a purple shirt just for the game that I will NEVER wear again.
A new year and a fresh start, at least that’s what is sometimes feels like with the cluster of holidays behind us and hopefully a bit more time on our hands.
For me, I would like to follow a little bit closer some words of advice that I permanently affixed to my forearm as a reminder to make decisions that serve my higher Self.
This also means making time to do activities I like, for example, my new knitting project that I can’t wait to get onto my needles:

…and spending more time sharing my explorations. Here is a sneak peak of some photos coming up from my recent treks to the midwest!

Happy New Year! Welcome 2015, looking forward to some awesome times!
