Reduction, minimization, lessening the load, getting rid of dead weight, and simplifying has been my journey for these past several years.
I sold my 3 bedroom, 2 story home, 5 years ago, in suburbia, and moved into a 2 bedroom, 2 bath high rise on the 20th floor, in a downtown metropolis. For 4 years, I used the second bedroom to store clothes and to occasionally throw a mattress down for someone to crash. Definitely a waste of space.
One year ago, I moved closer to the downtown valley, where I hear birds in the morning. The lush river washes me with calm and the greenery excites my senses every single day. My condo is a one bedroom with a galley kitchen. It’s small, renovated, quaint and yet feels like a castle perched on top of a hill. It’s all I need to feel safe, comfortable, happy and completely me.
I need very little to feel content.
Part of this adventure is to let go of “friends.” People, who online, haven’t spoken, liked, or commented on anything I’ve posted, in years. This “unfriending” process is not personal. It’s necessary. If I’ve made a mistake and you’re interested in still reading my thoughts, you can also follow, or re-request. Even if we live in the same city but haven’t ever really communicated, it’s time to go our separate ways. In the same way, feel free to pull the plug on me. If you’ve “unfollowed” me… it’s time to walk away. But you won’t even read this
So what is truly happening???
I want Real. Tangible. Honest. Parred Down. Nothing Fake.
I’m loving my life. Living with less and experiencing more. I’m reducing “have to” connections and creating long lasting friendships. I’m simplifying the stuff and maximizing love.
