Every year since i started to read Sarah Ban Breathnachs Simple Abundance and Brocante home, i have had a word for the year.
This year i have two - Live Simply.
Live Simply to me means: to make authentic choices and to create a life you love – free from clutter of all kinds.
Ideas to live simply:
1. Eat simple - i want to eat more fresh fruit and veg from local farm shops and markets. I want to eat more naturally using fresh ingrediants.
2. Shop simple - Do i need it? do i love it? will be my mantra.
I want at least 50% of things for my home, clothes and gifts to be second hand or handmade.
3. I am going to declutter. Flylady has been helping me with this.
4. I want, as a family, to spend more time together and outside. I have plans for more walks, picnics, and visits to interesting places.
“Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply, Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.''
Whats you word for the year? I'd love to know.
