Part of my thoughts and meditations while away have been residing in gratitude and minimalism. For anyone who knows me I try to keep a positive outlook and being grateful for the things I have instead of pining over those I don't is part of that. In fact I've been taking part in a 21 day gratitude practice and abundance seeding group.
The part that is sadly lacking from my life is the minimalistic aspects. As the child of a mother who grew up on a farm with depression era parents who held on to things "because you never know when you might need them" it is going to be a tough road. The mentality has been taught and woven into my fiber, much to husbands dismay! This is especially true for many of us with a limited income who homeschool which seems to be an excuse to hold onto all kinds of things you might want to make a project out of. So I've decided to share my journey with you. If your like me and need some inspiration, perhaps my journey may help you and even offer insights and pitfalls to avoid.

Joining Fly Lady and starting to develop routines and conquer the flybaby steps. I've done this a few years ago and fell off the band wagon. The thought here is if I don't have the cleaning habits in place, it will never be clean regardless of how much I get rid of.
