I loved this. It is so true, we only have a certain number of yes’s that we can realistically give. Thanks for the encouragement to really think about what I say yes to in my life.

What a fantastic idea! I am a home canner and have so many mason jars around here, and never knew about these lids. I am going to have to get my hands on them soon!

I agree. This year will be our first year doing charity work as a family. There are some great organizations in DC. You can also do it from your home by putting boxes together for soldiers in the military or poor children abroad. It’s a beautiful concept to teach our children!

These are great ideas! My small group at church was trying to think of service projects we could do and I think a lot of these would be fun!

Working here on the clutter, and getting rid of stuff I’ve held on to for too long. Finding so much freedom in throwing things away or giving things away. Your post reminded me of the book I’m reading: “The Magic Art of Tidying”. I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on it.

“Each time I finished an area – no matter how small – it fueled me for tackling the next spot. ”  That is so true. It really does give more motivation when you see your achievements.  Like you, I have been working towards getting rid of the paper clutter with a paperless system. It is amazing how much paper you accumulate – and so much can be filed away electronically now.

What a wonderful reminder! We live in the country and only have one neighbor, but it reminded me that I need to put more effort into being a good neighbor to them. Thanks for sharing this.

I love this idea, Victoria! It’s so important to reach out to our neighbors… and you are so right- when we clear our busy lives and make the room to prioritize the important things, like this… our daily living becomes more intentional.

Great words. Thanks! I just cut back on some things that I thought I HAD to do. It is freeing. I’d rather enjoy the little things in life than be busy all the time.

Loved this! I’m heading out tomorrow (Friday) with my old high school girl friends, and I do mean “old.” We’re all in our early 60’s. We’re taking a few days off for hiking up at Lake Tahoe and laughing in small cafes. I’m sure my husband will survive, and I know these kinds of adventures add to our marriage and to my self care.
