I love the word “Simplify.”
I think there is much peace, calmness, freedom, and rest in this word. Peace, knowing that you are living with what you actually use. Calmness, knowing that you aren’t living with all this clutter. Freedom, knowing you have freedom to live in your own home, instead of being overwhelmed with the stuff around you. Rest, knowing the less stuff you have, the less you have to take care of.
Since we are over a month into the new year, and your new year’s resolutions have been in practice for awhile if you made them, I want to add one more thing to that list. Rather, I don’t see it as a list, but as a lifestyle.
31 ways to simplify your life.
Are you looking to live more simply this year? Simplifying is something I am passionate about and find myself working towards for our own family, each and every day. The choices I make, the things I choose to do, the items I choose to buy, I try to hold up to the idea of simplifying.
I hold my faith as a high priority and with that, I believe that everything I own is not my own, but is a gift from God. So, if I have more stuff or live my life in a way that I can’t manage my schedule, I feel I am not being a good steward over what God has given me.
Hence why I created this list. This is a list of 31 ways that I have simplified my life and I encourage you to give some of them a try.
