Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown
Yesterday a dear blogger goddess
sent me "The Simple Living Pledge" to consider
for the new year...
Her timing was PERFECT
as once again
I had over committed
The Simple Living Pledge
I pledge to live a simple life through: - decluttering; - using less; - learning to be sustainable in all aspects of life; - slowing down and finding joy in little things; - reconnecting with my inner self; - spending more time with my loved ones; - elevating experiences above possessions.
(And for me I'm adding...)
Letting go of the burden of "obligation"
Go here to read more and to take the pledge
I don't know about you
but obligation is encoded in my DNA
a reflexive response to any request
with a hearty,
"Sure, that would be great!"
"I'd love to!"
Then either immediately
or when the 'event' arrives
I'm standing there scratching my head saying
"WHAT WAS I THINKING?"
Come on admit it...
I KNOW I am not the only one does this
So this new year
I am adding
