I like to pick areas of my life to simplify. This prevents me from trying to do too much at once. It also helps me stay focused on making sure my simplifications are solid, sustainable and serve me. After all, I simplify to make room for other things in my life, not just to simplify.
So I’m currently feeling the need to take on a simplification project and share the details here. What to do? Past efforts have included meal planning and shopping, correspondence, reading/skills and crafting.
This time, given the time of year, I am going to tackle on simplifying the holidays.
YIKES! I can hear you saying. It’s not even October! It’s too early!
Hear me out. I do all my planning in October because November will find me frantically typing away for National Novel Writing Month. Plus the whole series, possibly an e-book, will be done by the beginning of November, when most normal people start thinking about the holidays.
Starting in early October, you will see a series of articles on how to make holiday planning simpler, so you can enjoy the holidays. Please note: this will not refer to any specific holiday for any faith. It is simply to apply to all those celebrations, from all cultures, that take place in mid-winter.
