I have spent my life dreaming of more. The big home. The nice car and clothes. Successful career. All attained at points along the journey, that has now left me wanting...wanting less! It's funny how when your mind locks into what your heart desires it hones in, with amazing precision, to what might help you get there.
Minimalism has caught my attention. I don't desire to live in an 600 sq ft box, but nor do I need 3,000 sq ft. I pretty much wear the same 6 shirts yet my closet is crammed. There is so much crap sitting in our house and storage that we will NEVER use.
Our family diet has been horrible. Fast food most nights. I'm now focused on these 7 words: "Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants". Watched "In Defense of Food" and the light bulb went on.
Faith has been large component of my life. I've had years of abundance, and years of dry deserts. I've watched churches soar and their leaders fall...like myself (Though I'm no leader). I've made Luke 10:25-27 my focal point.
I desire to strip away what is either no longer necessary or distracting. Including less time on this gadget that use to be a phone. Will I achieve nirvana? Can't say, but maybe it will adjust the exposure and clarity and bring into focus what's really important.
Less is more.
