Embracing a simpler lifestyle agrees with me. I am darn happy! It is still sinking in how wonderful it was to have our former big-ass, high maintenance home finally sell a month ago. I am continuing to downsize my possessions. I’m still sentimental, and have attached a lot of memories and emotions to so many of our things. That’s okay. It’s a process I’ve learned. And not spending energy and money on acquiring more stuff feels great. I value spending my time on people instead of things. My biggest passions these days are organic cooking, some canning, photography and creating a handy and healthy pantry. (I suspect some of my hoarding instincts are now directed towards food! But so far, it’s under control.) My jeans still fit.
Workwise, I am focusing on doing my most favorite endeavors – teaching workshops that involve repurposing somehow, and some public speaking. Selling ideas and experiences instead of stuff. I’d be tickled pink to have you join me at Ruffles & Rust Square on November 5 for a Holiday Glass Jar Lantern Class. See the previous post for all the sign-up info, and a pretty picture of the class project.
Raoul and I have some fun travel adventures on our future calendar. So the Little Miss Homebody thing will be balanced with plenty of suitcase packing and trips to the airport.
I’m in a good place. I hope you are as well.
