Week 2 of my minimalist challenge has been slightly more difficult than the first. It’s hard not to look forward. To project to how the 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th of June might feel in sequence. But the reality is that until today there have only been a few spots in the house really closely scrutinised, and completely minimised to the point where nothing else that can go.
Each day till now when I finish my little culling expedition, I consider continuing into July and just starting the whole thing all over again. But I think I’ll give it a couple of months. It seems like something which could be done a few times a year, each time with a new frame of mind and a fresh view of what’s really needed.
On the topic of challenges, June does seems to be the month of the challenge, or at least that’s what it feels like to me. Winter boredom perhaps, but Facebook and the internet is littered with challenge ideas right now. I was inspired to start an Abs Challenge by two different people, and have been pushing myself every day to do a ridiculous number of crunches, sit-ups, leg raises and spend longer and longer in the plank. It’s a strange combination of challenges I know, but I guess I am minimising my abs! So I’m culling on 2 fronts.
