Less is more, which, according to the law of inverse, means that more is less.
Right now I have way too much more.
I have so much more that I have way too much less. I want more less so that I can have more more. Understand? Good. Right. For example, right now I have more clothes, which means more laundry, which means less time with my children. I want less clothes, less laundry and more time with my children.
Here is a list of what I have too much more of and the less they create:
Clothes=less time for more enjoyable activities
Piles of clutter=less room in my home
Unfinished projects=less space in my closets
Body weight=less health, less physical ability, less energy, less positive self image
Sitting on my butt=less accomplished in life
Junk=less pride in my surroundings
Now, if I could have less of those above items I might get more of these:
And who wouldn't want more of that? Thus I have decided to start a crusade in the name of lessness. I'm going to go way above and beyond the usual box or two to Goodwill. I'm talking serious lessness here. Here is the game plan:
On October 3rd I will post photos of all the junk I get rid of.
On October 10th I will post before and after photos of gutted closets and corners.
On October 17th I will post start-again and finished or tossed to the curb photos of projects that have been hiding in my closets for years.
On October 24th I will post the average amount of less-hours I spend sitting down.
And on October 31st, while everyone is rifling through their children's Halloween candy (at least I know I will be), I will post any weight I will hopefully have lost.
I will warn you ahead of time, I am a closet pack rat and the pictures are going to be very graphic. No knick-knack will be spared, no half-finished cross stitch will see mercy, and my computer chair will gather dust!!! If you care to join the Less Crusade I will put up a Mr. Linky for these Friday posts so we can all share our lesses.
