Last week I went on a bit of a rant about NYE resolutions, and how if you are happy with life just maybe keep things as you are. But in it I mentioned about how if there is something you are unhappy with, try to identify it and make a change or changes to help solve that unhappiness.
Have you ever started something and then wished you hadn’t?
So I keep a little Excel sheet of my items that I am getting rid of as part of the new 100 game, and on it I also note down blog ideas for the future. I have a little note on it right now saying “New Year’s Resolutions (12/02) – Link back to blog New Items 37 to 56)”. Now I remember why I wrote that note; 12th Feb is 6 weeks after the New Year, and I was going to update on my progress on my NYE resolutions and talk a bit more about expanding my interests beyond throwing my possessions away… BUT I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT MY SPECIFIC NYE RESOLUTIONS WERE. EPIC FAIL.
A small exercise in tidying up my getting ready area led me to two big realisations on my minimalist adventures…
