Learning to live with less AND live with more

I’ve been inspired by minimalism of late — actually, I have for quite a while. And I’m now coming out of the (empty) closet: I’m choosing now to live as a minimalist.

The inspiration for this is pretty mundane — I’m moving house (again!)  and frankly, I don’t feel like moving so much *stuff* around. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to my new-found minimalism.

There’s a lot in my life that I don’t want that I have right now, and stuff is only part of the problem. I also don’t want debt, I don’t want clutter, I don’t want the disorganisation that my cupboards are full of. And every time I move I promise that I’ll sort it out. And I don’t.

And there’s things that I DO want that I’ve decided I’d like MORE of, thank you. Connection is one of them. I find that I’m doing a lot of activities and spending too much time on my own, which isn’t really a good thing. Hugs are something I’d like more of. And meeting someone special would be a good thing too. And I’d like more experiences: travel is high on the list, but I’ve also decided I’d like to try parasailing at some point, and driving with the wind blowing through my hair.

So welcome to my journey. I expect it’ll take a little while to get to where I want to be; I hope it’ll be fun.
