I am most excited for myself that I get to share Living Simplicity with you sometime in the next few months! I hope to share some great opportunities with you soon, about how you can be part of getting the word out. I truly believe we could all use to live a little simplicity.

In getting our homes in order, we are creating a space from which to launch all other aspects of living simply. We can use it as a centering point, a place where we can get our focus and live out the principles of simplicity. When my home is simple, it makes managing resources in other areas much easier. When I have my resources managed in my home well, I've learned that I am in a much better state of mind to tackle the other aspects of simple.
Notice I didn't say getting our homes spotless. I didn't say perfect. Or, perfectly decorated. None of these things are required to get find our simple self. Mostly, we need to have a degree of control of over our space, so that we can mange our resources well from that place. If our space for planning and launching is overrun with mismanaged resources, then how can we hope to do that way from there?
Among other things, I hope to encourage us one aspect of simplicity at a time this year. There are a lot of places we can start, but we will start right where we are - in our spaces.
Starting soon, we will begin a new series on simplifying our homes. There is plenty on the internets about the cleaning/organizing aspect of simplifying home. I will focus more on the emotional and spiritual aspect of getting our homes in order.
To get started, take a peek a recent post on how pride can affect your clutter.
And, stay tuned to learn how clutter can affect our relationships. It may surprise you that being overrun by clutter can negatively affect your closest relationships, and hinder the greatest purpose behind living simplicity.
Also, I am working on an online course as a companion series to Living Simplicity (to be released spring/summer 2017). If would like some more interactive encouragement to simplify, I may have an e-course for you. Again, stay tuned by subscribing for updates!
I am so excited to learn with you this year!
