3 little things.
I would like to think that I've come a long ways in the past months, and in some ways I have, but every day I have to remind myself that living a simplified, chaos free (mostly) and uncluttered life is a lifestyle more than a divide and conquer mission. Today at the library that point was put back in front of my face when I found myself staring at a feature wall full of books all about decluttering, simplifying and organizing. It kind of caught me off guard actually. As I was standing there taking in about 30 different books, I kind of had to keep myself from laughing out loud. How many books will it take for us to learn what they all say?? At the end of the day it really comes down to three simple things...
1. live within (or below) your means
2. get rid of all the stuff you don't use, want or need
3. stop bringing stuff in to your life that you don't NEED
Sure, I could expand on all those things and write pages on the psychology of it all and give you pages of organizing tips and encouraging anecdotes. But you know what? You're smarter than that. All it takes is one choice at a time in the right direction and soon you will have made a lifestyle change.
No secret steps. No 25 steps to freedom. Just small changes that lead to big differences.
