Thank you for stopping by my blog which will contain some general musings on simplicity and how it can paradoxically result in a richer life. I am not a practising minimalist but I aspire to greater simplicity in my life. I want to get rid of the physical clutter to start unloading the mental clutter. I have found that letting go of the material ‘stuff’ is so much easier than jettisoning the mental muddles and I am hoping that starting a blog will be an amusing and useful way to navigate my way through. If I have company on the way, so much the better.
I would love to start a dialogue with anyone who cares to join in about experiences with simplicity and minimalism. It’s something I have been interested in for two or three years now and I’m ready to share some of the reflections that have only been in my own head up until now. To me, simplicity is not an end in itself but the means to an end and I’d like to explore what that signifies.
As with so many others, I have found that the easiest way into this new way of thinking and being is through my wardrobe. Not in a Narnia kind of way but rather the incredible freedom of a capsule wardrobe. I have been doing a capsule wardrobe for about six seasons now (that is a year and a half) and learn so much every time I conclude one and start another.
Next time, I’ll write about this in more detail. In the meantime, thanks for reading and have a good week 🙂
