I had a hard time finding a subject line for this post so I just kept it really simple. <—Lol that sounds so corny, but true! I know there’s a huge minimalistic movement going on and while I personally identify with certain aspects of that, I don’t feel it’s the right term for our family.
Like…I can’t personally live off of 15 items of clothing for three months and honestly I gape in admiration at women who can.
So I like to say we just like to live simply.
What exactly do that mean you ask?
In other words, we just try to make sure we are taking things back to the basics.
If you can’t take care of your stuff, you have too much stuff.
Keep your health clean and stay active.
If you can’t pay for it in cash you can’t afford it.
If you aren’t wearing it or it doesn’t fit amazing, get rid of it.
And it’s been a journey…where we fall off and then re-center. I’m talking years and years type of journey for us as a family, before even our girls came into the picture. 100’s maybe even 1000’s of small steps that led us to today.
The reason I’m talking about it is because it’s been of such value to us to take it back to the basics. And in this blog I will talk to you guys much more in depth about what it looks like behind the scenes, valuable tips I’ve learned from other bloggers and public figures and what’s worked (and hasn’t for us).
If you would of told me ten years ago I would be praising simple living, homeschooling our kids and blogging about my life and everything in it…I would have definitely laughed at you. Like crazy throw your neck back full on laughed.
Those four little bullet points don’t encapsulate everything…it’s just a starter.
But I’m excited to share and it’s because when you clear out all the bullshit and the rat race, you get back time and energy. Time to spend enjoying your family, yourself, your husband, your work….your LIFE!
I choose to spend my time on three things mainly…with my kids, with my husband and growing my business.
What would you do if you could get hours back into your life?
