This Is What I Know For Sure Today:
I was thinking to myself about how much was enough. How much money does a person really need, how many friends, how many cars, how many books…paints…journals…shoes….and on and on.
For me Less is Best. This is my latest mantra. But, when it comes to the people and things in my life I will not settle. We all deserve our own personal best. I say less is best to drama/chaos, less stuff/things to clean, less on my plate = more time to be with folks that need some help or friendship, less is best! How is your life? Is it on the Less side or the More side? I know that I would not do well with more. I am such a simple person. Music, books, paper, canvas, paints-pencils-pens, my prayer quilt, my foo-foo dog, my husband Kim, a few clothes and some shoes, and I am all good. I think I would make a better bag lady than I realized. I want to encourage you that having tons of everything is fine if that is really your thing…but often that comes from a void in your heart. Stuff and lots of busyness is temporary.
I have my clients, my street kids, my prison ladies, my less than 5 friends, my foo-foo dog and the people I work with that aren’t clients. That’s plenty.
Once you begin to go through your life and all your possessions and activities it can become scary. Keep clearing stuff out. Others will appreciate all that you give away. Less busyness means more time to enjoy life. If you had to live comfortably in one room could you? How many activities could you lose and be content? Think about this as we bound through spring. Less is always best….more is a bore. I love you all and I am sending you lots of love and pink huggz.
I love and care about you all. I always wish I could do more but I can only do what I do. I am sending you each just enough pink huggz.
