This is a goal I’ve been working on for some time. I feel like I made some really big progress over the summer with my wardrobe capsule. Getting rid over 2/3 of your clothes really teaches you a lot about yourself. About your spending habits. It’s a hard pill to swallow! My winter wardrobe capsule is even more refined. I’ll update that here soon. Soon my need for organization started spilling over to other areas of my house. My books, my papers, my kitchen and so on. I recently read the book The Life-Changeing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Maria Kondo. And life changing it is! I finally had the missing piece to my cluttered puzzle. The piece that I knew right away was going to keep me from getting into that mess again! I highly recommend you read it for yourself and follow her method.
About a week before New Years I started reflecting on my year. What was good about it? What was bad about it? What can I learn from it? What can I be grateful for? What do I want for myself in 2015. More and I more I am becoming accepting of myself. Instead of trying to be an extrovert when I a so clearly an introvert I am embracing! Embracing my need for less. Less things on the calendar, less money, less food, less clutter. In that quest for less I have discovered more of what I want. More quiet, more empty space, more time. So for 2015 my goal is simplicity, simplicity in everything I do, in everything I have, in everything I make. I will be adding lots of posts about this here. Mostly for myself, to keep motivated and to keep myself accountable. I hope you all have a beautiful 2015 with highs and low (because we need both!)
