Simplifying LifePosted by Thammie Sy on Feb 6, 2013 in Homemaking, Household Tips, Organizing and Decluttering, Tips and Principles | 0 comments
One of the things that relaxes me is organizing. I wish I could say that it has the same effect on the other people in my household, but Iâ€™m not so sure thatâ€™s the case. I tend to get so into it Â that I could go on and on without stopping to eat or sit and rest. Now, when I forget about food and eating, thatâ€™s really saying something!
Anyway, since I had to stay in bed for most of my pregnancy, and now that we have a new baby once again, I have been forced to simplify. I am given no choice but to learn to let some things be. A lot of things, actually… from kitchen matters, to homeschool stuffâ€¦the key word has been to â€śsimplifyâ€ť. As it turns out, homemaking and homeschooling donâ€™t have to be complicated after all! If we are to still have life after all the school matters and household management, then we have to learn to let some things be (for the mean time, at least), and to simplify. There are far more important things than getting everything in perfect order. There are relationships to nurture, and of course, there’s our sanity to keep.
I will try my best (operative word: TRY) to share with you one small thing that we can do each day that may eventually make a huge difference in our home life.Â Like they say, the difference between a five-star hotel and a three-star one are the little hinges and doorknobs that we might so often deem insignificant. Just because we feel we do not have enough time doesnâ€™t mean we canâ€™t do anything significant with the time that we do have in our hands.
Tomorrow, letâ€™s try and start this thingâ€¦
