Well, isn’t that the truth.

I make myself rich by making my wants few. – Henry David Thoreau

If only simplicity were not the most difficult of all things. – Carl Jung

What is prosperity anyway? Is it money in the bank, or is it a fulfilling life? – William Bryant Logan

Perhaps this is what freedom actually means: not the ability to crush oneself down with unending piles of useless clutter, but instead the lightness that comes from decluttering physical, mental, and emotional space-time of the causes and effects of the insatiable appetite for more. – Michael Yankoski, The Sacred Year

These are the thoughts floating around in my brain currently.

Our stuff is heavy.

The quotes above are all referenced in Michael Yankoski’s book, The Sacred Year, which I’m reading for the 3rd time. Somehow, it’s like the words are hitting me square in the face, jumping off the pages.

I sit and think about how chasing simplicity might very well be one of the most difficult of all things.

Definitely one of the hardest of ALL THE THINGS for this self-proclaimed hoarder.

Once again I admit my struggles and how I haven’t yet arrived in this area of my life. Sure, I know how to flip a house. Purge my stuff? Not so much.

It’s a heart issue. It’s a physical stuff issue. It’s my issue.

No one can fix this for me, it’s something I have to wrestle.

Deep down in my soul I know there is so much more to this life and it’s likely found in having less.
