I fell in love with the idea of living “simply” after traveling 6 months (through snow and hot sun) with one small carry-on bag. #hellowoolite
Let’s be honest… it was NOT a piece of cake. It was actually terrifying – and I fully expected to buy another bag while over there.
But I didn’t.
Instead I found myself thinking less about my clothes, more about the people I met.
A simple uncluttered bag, lead to a simple uncluttered life.
One that was full of meaning and all the good, juicy stuff we crave.
Less rushing, more breathing.
I started to notice the simple things that made me happy.
A stranger opening my door or a smile from the local barista.
The less “stuff” I had, the more clarity I gained on what really made me happy.
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” – Hans Hoffman
So this week I’ll be creating space in my mind, heart, and closet for the meaningful things.
Your task this morning?
Make room for the stuff that matters today.
