In my last post, I laid out all the things I had recently started doing.
Most of them are still current.
I am slowly moving through what was supposed to be a 30 day workout program, almost 2 months after starting it. I am not allowing myself to give up on it yet.
I am enjoying the flexibility of the new job I have contracted for until June. It has taken a little while to carve out time to get the work done, though.
I am still working on the article writing and scripture writing. Creating routine and carving out time for focus are still on my never-ending to-do list.
So, why on earth did I start this blog and call it "Relaxed Simple Life"? Relaxed and simple don't seem to fill my days. Lately chaos, frustration and utter exhaustion from unfulfilled expectations have filled my mind and thoughts.
But I have a goal and an end in sight.
Recently a friend mentioned minimalism to me. I had dabbled in thoughts of it last year, and I used it for motivation while packing up our old house to let go of some of the clutter instead of adding it to another box.
Now, I have a goal for minimalism in my life, not just pertaining to stuff, but my mindset. My surroundings, my routine, my day-to-day. I want to weed out things that are stealing my time and energy from what is precious and sacred in my life.
Thank God our new home is in a peaceful area. I need that peace to come fill the house and my heart completely.
Hopefully with time and attention to weeding out the unnecessary, it will.
