The holiday weekend went super duper fast, no? I hauled the above stack of books, nearly 20 magazines, and big dreams out to Le Beau's cabin last weekend. After hours fireside, lots of documentary watching (LOVED Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead 2), plus lots of online work, the days passed quickly.
Thus, unfortunately, I hauled the same amount home barely touched, except for the first part of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. When I shared this book on our Facebook page, I was overwhelmed with the responses on how truly life changing this book has been. Now, I really can't wait to dive into it!
Over the weekend I did carve out the days I plan to do massive overhaul at the Pink Palace with a goal of donating and shedding 25% of my stuff (watch for videos and photos of the process coming during the holidays).
Although I don't have much in my 600-square-foot home shared with a human boy and three furry boys, there's still plenty I don't need and I want to shed. Especially after all the minimalism TED Talks we devoured.
Thoreau famously said, "Life is frittered away by details, simplify, simplify, simplify." I agree, and I also love the sweet details of daily life. It's all about balance.
As we tie a bow around 2014 and all this year has brought, it's also exciting to look ahead to what we want in 2015. I'm exploring more and more ways to simplify, shed, open, and tidy. Et toi?
Wishing you a Wednesday filled with well-being and tinsel-covered joy. Bisous. x
