Day 5 has come to a close and I made it! I can relax and no longer spend every moment decluttering or thinking about what to do next. And yet, I know that this is just the beginning. Just a scratching of the surface that goes so much deeper to create the life of simplicity I long for – for both me and my family. I believe there is a fire behind this newly gained momentum that will fuel a relentless pursuit in me.
Some may wonder why I didn’t share more before and after photos, or step by step how-to’s. I believe that everyone has to find the formula that works best for them. The simple question that I ask myself, whenever the letting go of an item proves hard is this: Does this item help me to move forward in my vision of a more simplified life? Most often than not, that answer is no.
But we each have our own reason for downsizing, letting go, simplifying, or whatever you want to call it. Mine is a process that will play out over time. Maybe when I’m a famous blogger I will share more before and after photos with you. Lol! But for now, I think I’ll sit back and bask in what I know has been accomplished in these last 120 hours. And it has been enough to give me a taste of what it could be like should everything have a place, and everything be in its place.
“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it…”
