I can't seem to get that word out of my brain. I've tried to ignore it. I've tried to keep things just the way they are. But, I feel this constant tugging and nagging to make a change and simply things. To simplify my life. So, instead of ignoring that tugging any longer, I'm trying to listen (for a change).
What do I need to simplify?
Is it our house. Do I need to clean out closets, clean out draws and get ride of the clutter? I really want to find a weekend and do this. I don't want to become a pack rat and I really don't want to keep things, just to keep them.
It it our finances? Do we need to simplify our spending? Do we need to stop buying things, just to buy them? Do we need to stop going out to eat just cause we are too lazy to make something at home? YES! It's time to really learn to difference between a need and a want. I don't need 85% of the things I buy, I want them. We are in a good place, financially, but we could be in an even better place.
Our could it be relationships? Do I just need to forgive, forget and move on? Yes. But that's a different story, for a different day.
It is something else? I'm sure there are plenty of changes I could make. I just need to figure out what they are. I need to listen.
So now is the time to change. Time to simplify our life. I really think, that even though change can be hard, it will make me happier and our family stronger.
