We are HALFWAY!
How are YOU doing?
I have often wondered if there are other people just as passionate about living with less as I am?
As I have also been going through this process, I am realizing I am feeling free. Free from commitments, free from obligation, free from clutter, free from having to clean more and more, free from having to organize more, free, free, free. I feel I have more time to do the things I want to do because I am living with less.
You may be getting sick of going through every drawer, closet, shelf, corner, tool chest, and bathroom cabinet. At the same time, do you secretly find it to be a freeing experience? Are you finding that you have more space in your house?
Decluttering, organizing, and living with less is not a one-step process. I wish I could say it was. You already may be thinking that after 50 days, you could stand to go through certain areas AGAIN, getting rid of even MORE! Even after 100 days, you will find that you have not gotten rid of everything that you should, but you will realize that you are better able to let go of things you may not need, instead of uselessly storing them.
This 100 Day of Less is not about making room for MORE, but about wanting less in life. I am hoping that through this challenge, you will be able to look back at your life and say “I just do not need or even WANT as much as I used to.” In that thinking, that is when MORE may come in – your desire for MORE time to yourself, MORE time with family, MORE time outside, MORE time with friends, MORE time doing the things you want to do, and generally, MORE time for others.
Keep going…you are halfway there! It may get daunting and you may be stuck on Day 5. That is okay. Go at a pace you feel comfortable with! If it takes you 5 days to get through one day, that means you were meant to spend 5 days on that one. That area was a “hot spot.” The more you do now, the less you will need to do later.
Hang in in there…
Only 50 more days to go!
WHERE ARE YOU AT?
