Recently I have grown more and more intrigued by the idea of living more simply. I am not quite ready to live in a tiny space or take the 100 things challenge but I am increasingly aware that the more things you have the more clutter you have and this clutter cultivates a distance from the items often resulting in our becoming unaware of them at all. Still we are the caretakers of our "things" and we feel their collective burden without being able to really appreciate each item individually.
I read a fascinating article on Happiness this morning. It is rather long but worth reading and thinking about.
I am not quite sure what direction this will lead me but for now I am committed to being on a continual look-out for things that I can get rid of and to thinking at least twice before I bring something new into my life.
