As week 3 of my minimalist challenge drew to a close on Saturday, I checked something which I’ve been consciously avoiding since I started. I did the maths. Up until day 21, I’ve managed to ditch 221 things. Yay me! Fantastic! In the final 9 days, yes 9 days…231 things will need to find their way out of our home. I am a bit overwhelmed by that number, but am just trying to focus on it as a day by day challenge.
So far I’ve already managed to clear a lot of areas in the house. Our house is very small, and as I’ve mentioned before, we are already practiced cullers. So the question of where next haunts me a bit at the end of each day. It’s like, YES I’ve done it, that feels really great, and then my mind drifts to the tougher challenge of the following day. But somehow each day a new opportunity for culling seems to present itself. I am waiting for that to happen today as I procrastinate and write about last week. A week of huge success as my home becomes a minimalist haven of clarity and peace…I can always dream.
