Collections of Thanksgiving

The beautiful colors that adorn the hillsides and line the roadways at this season of the year give us one last color explosion before the winter season arrives. We collect the leaves, acorns and pumpkins  to accent the spaces in our homes, and the splashes of reds, yellows, browns and all the colors in between give us a quilt of many colors to wrap up this season of Thanksgiving.

It is another reason to celebrate the beauty of the world in which we live and a special season to give Thanks for all our blessings.

31 Days to Simplify—Day 31

Day 31—Show Up

Every day of our lives is important. We have to show up, be present and be aware of the life we are living. Living on auto pilot, just doing what has to be done or what is expected of us will eventually leave us unhappy, stressed and without joy.

Show up, know what choices you are making, set your course and live life in your way. There will always be expectations that others press on us. However, if we are aware and we have a plan, all those things that don’t fit our lives will be easy to refuse.

31 Days to Simplify—Day 30

Day 30—Why Simplify?

We don’t simplify to just remove activities, possessions, commitments and distractions from our lives.  We simplify to give ourselves space and permission to live the life that we were created to live. Simplifying removes the things that prevent us from being at peace, being content and being the person we are called to be.

31 Days to Simplify—Day 28

Day 28—Live Intentionally

Drifting through life will never lead us where we want to go. In order to have the life we dream about we have to live intentionally.  Set your course, write out what you want and move in that direction.

Start where you are and make daily commitments to live with intention.  Get off of auto pilot and be present.  Live in the moments for they are fleeting.

31 Days to Simplify—Day 27

Day 27—Create a Haven in Your Home

Home should be the place where we can unwind, relax, rejuvenate and feel comfortable. The  size of your home doesn’t matter. What matters is how we treat our homes and how we treat ourselves.   Removing clutter and excess reduces the amount of work needed to keep our homes clean and comfortable. Which means that we will spend less time cleaning and more time relaxing.

Day 26—Expect Good Things

Good things really do happen.  It isn’t just about a positive attitude, although attitude plays an important part in what happens in life. 

The closer we get to where we need to be, whether it is in simplifying our lives or clearing clutter from our homes we can expect good things to happen.  There is something about removing distractions (clutter) that opens up possibilities and miracles do happen.

31 Days to Simplify—Day 25

Day 25—Let Your Dreams Become Reality

Everybody dreams impossible dreams, crazy dreams and big and small dreams. Dreams are not about going places we don’t need to go. Dreams are important because they challenge us to take leaps of faith so we can live the life we desire.  This is why it is so important to let go of all the stuff, clutter, distractions, things that easily detour us from making our dreams become reality. What can we let go of to realize our dreams?

Living above the chaos of life, seeking out the higher callings that are on our lives and letting go of the clutter is what dreaming is all about. It really is about simplifying so we can be who we are called to be and live the life we are called to live.

My leap of faith dream is to license my artwork and photography and write inspirational books.  This journey has me headed toward a new reality.  I am expecting more from life and my expectations have me pressing my face against the window of life and telling all the doubts and fears to disappear.
