I am celebrating a new holiday today — and no Hallmark card is required. I’m calling this ‘Appreciate and Maintain What You Have’ week. I’m in the mindset to:
- Stay home
- Eat the food we have at home
- Clean counters of the things we aren’t using
- Bring some zinnias in from the garden to beautify our space
- Sort items under the end tables and move the few magazines I am keeping to the bookshelf
Some of my feelings this week have their roots in Voluntary Simplicity. Instead of looking for more and different why not start by working with the bounty that is already here, and already paid for? The other part of my feelings can be summed up as ‘Will someone please put away the Lego Friends’ City that has taken over my living room for the past week?!?!’
I’ll let you know how this goes! I hope wherever you are you are enjoying peaceful surroundings.
