I thought this wise-beyond-her-years Arabella quote above is a great lead-in to my latest project:
The Minimalist Parent camp, that is (Thank you so much to local blogger Nichole Beaudry of In These Small Moments for alerting me to this great opportunity!).
From the website:
Through a series of 14 daily tasks, you'll make real progress in the areas many of us find challenging: managing your time, handling clutter (in your home, schedule, and mind), simplifying mealtime, and making room for self-care.
And when you complete your task, you get a badge, just like in Girl Scouts (I was a sucker for Girl Scout badges).
And it's free - what's not to love?
Today I had my first task - make of list of things I want MORE of and things I want LESS of. The things could be anything:
- In the MORE column, list things that enrich your life and the things you'd like more of.Feelings, objects, experiences...anything goes. List even the far-fetched and impossible-seeming stuff. Try not to censor yourself (this list is for your eyes only).
- In the LESS column, list the things, assumptions and situations you'd like less of. Things that are complicating your life, reliably dragging it down, or are plain un-fun. No guilt or judgment allowed.
So I spent a good 20 minutes this morning making my more/less list:
I want MORE:
And here's my sweet badge:
