Organized Simplicity

"Creating a more peaceful living space doesn't happen overnight, nor does this tranquility remain forever unchanged once you've arrived at uncluttered nirvana. A peaceful home requires a change of attitude, a habit of regular maintenance, and a lifelong commitment to place higher priority on relationship and events than on things."

We are slowly, slowly working on this, beginning with our home environment. Despite the fact that the ground is still snow covered and any chance of garage sale is a couple months off, I'm starting a gentle purge around the house. A big garbage bag and box of toys left the play room last week. (And still there is too much in there!) I was feeling well enough two days ago to clear paths in our basement where stuff has piled while I've been sick. The laundry area got a mop and purge also. The upstairs hall closet got a first go over, but still needs a bigger sweep. The garage is just scary, and will have to wait until better weather when I can haul things out onto the driveway to try and make some sense out of it.

But there is promise. The first step truly is a change in mentality, and I really think I've turned that corner.
