The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple.
~Doris Janzen Longacre
With school starting back up in a couple of weeks, I've been taking inventory. I've been eyeballing bedrooms, dressers and closets – assessing what we have, and making a mental checklist (Wouldn't it be awesome if I actually wrote these things down. Imagine how productive I'd be!) of what we'll need in the fall.
And here is the conclusion I've come to:
Once again, we've accumulated too. much. stuff.
Oh what will it take to finally penetrate my thick skull with the truth that less is freeing – less is less stressful – less is easier to manage – less is spiritually, financially, emotionally beneficial?
I'm shooting myself in the foot by hungering for more.
