Ok yeah, so I went upstairs to hunt up the fall decorations, found the tote and picked out a few things to use, and even with just the few things I picked, I’m thinking where do I put this and where can I put that. It seems like every year I am bringing down less and less. I tell myself, if I get that out, I’m just going to have to put it back.
I can remember thinking, wow, grandma doesn’t really put much out for the different seasons and holidays. Wonder why she didn’t just embrace it and get all out festive?! I mean I use to put up three Christmas trees for crying out loud! Well… it’s all starting to make sense to me now, grandma knew what she was doing. You put it up, you’ll be taking it down and do you really want to go there?
Simplify simplify… I like that word more and more.
I’m guessing we’re all a little like that. We start out doing it all, we never seem to have enough.
And before you know it we start wanting to simplify things. Less is more.
Each year I’m discovering just how true that is. Now will that stop me from purchasing something that I just love and calls my name? No of course not, I haven’t quite reached that point yet but give me time I’m sure I’ll arrive there someday.
Until then I will just enjoy little bits here and little bits there!
