It’s Springtime! Therefore time to come clean with a few life updates and reasons why I have been inactive on here for a while.
- January, I lost my best friend to cancer
- February, My husband started a new role as Stay at Home Dad
- March, I found out I was expecting baby number five
- April, suffering from severe fatigue and nausea
- May, Uni and exam period, plus the above
- June, Decided to take a break from Uni and started writing for Xt3
- July, Trying to get back to routine
- August, Putting on weight and feeling great!
- Oops too much weight and here I am in September!
So that’s me in a nutshell! I’m still a bit of a nut, but I am actively working on it.
However, the real reason why I am here is to publicly commit to a small goal I have. I started this blog because I wanted to start the conversation and add to the positive anti-consumerism culture and so here I go back to the basics.
I will try to help you be OK with wanting less in a world that demands that you want more.
I will do it in two simple ways.
- Sharing my stories and reflections
- Sharing my tips and those of others that are way better at this than me
I will do this every Monday for the next Month. Promise.
But for now here is an interesting reflection from St Mother Teresa, whose feast day we celebrate today.
“The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance. It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy.”
-St Mother Teresa
Reflection: What could you give, if you were less distracted?
