Following on from yesterday’s ponderings about space, I’m feeling super serene today as we move out of the house we’ve lived in for three weeks. When we first started this house-sitting adventure last year, our car was brimming. We’d sold everything in our house but still had a car and roof box full of stuff including a two harps and a computer. Then we downsized again and felt even lighter. We sold loads more stuff including the computer and a harp and gave other bits to charity. We’ve continued to shed. My suitcase closes without having to sit on it now 😄. It used to be full to bursting. The space in the car is abundant. The space in my heart is abundant too meaning living simply keeps my mind clear and let’s me focus on creating beauty. Being a producer rather than a consumer. It’s addictive to give things away now but also reminds me to think hard before buying things in the first place and think, is it useful? Do I really want to bring this into my life? Then I have time to feel free and happy rather than heavy and burdened by stuff.
