One of the reasons I decided May would be the month of decluttering is because I want to start doing more with less. It sounds cliche, but I am making an effort to be more present in my life. I don’t want to be so distracted that I wake up one day and realize that I’ve let my life go by. (That’s heavy for the beginning of the week, I know. Sorry.)
I keep thinking about this former-NYC-er who gave up her job and moved to the Caribbean in an effort to enjoy life more. While I can’t see myself doing that (ever), it’s inspiring in a way that it has made me question more what I’m doing with my time. Am I being productive? Am I making the world a better place for someone?
Have you made an effort to be more present? How did you do it?
