Getting back to the basics can be very hard. Sometimes intimidating, and almost all of the time frustrating. It seems to be human nature to want the next best thing. The newest, the biggest, the best of everything. But when is it too much?
I am 100% guilty of wanting beautiful things, of feeling a need to have new things. It is completely natural to want to better yourself. But the items I have do not define me. It is time to get back to the basics. To throw everything out and start over. Start fresh with only those items that I truly love and feel are necessary for my small family. This week I am filling garbage bags with just "things" that have been sitting around for years. I am the type of person who wants to keep everything, just waiting until that day that I can pull it out and find something to use it for. I want to start filling this life with pieces that mean something to me. That have a special memory or story attached to it. Those are the things I want around our home.
Does anyone else ever feel like it is time for an overhaul?
