She writes about relaxation and why “Your Clutter Hates You”

She taught me to be less hard on myself.

I have been known to procrastinate, especially when it comes to my least favorite job in the office – filing. I felt I needed to have everything perfect in my office, until I read her post in which she says, procrastination gets a bad rap. She went on to explain:

By delaying action, we give ourselves a chance to change our minds, analyze situations, receive updated data, and put things in perspective. For unnecessary or dramatic, life-altering circumstances, this can be a good thing.

We have all read how simplicity is defined as living with less material things in our lives, and while that is true to a certain degree, in her post titled: Am I Just Faking It?, she writes:

….. simplicity isn’t just about cutting stuff out of your life. It’s about stripping life down to the bare essentials, throwing out all assumptions, and rebuilding the world around you to fit the dream you have, not the one you’re told to want or raised to believe in. After all, life should be rich. It just doesn’t have to be rich in money, or stuff, or accolades.

That statement speaks volumes, and verifies that less is more in all aspects of our lives.

Although this blog is only two months old, it’s already packed with value based posts that can help each of us on a daily basis.

It was in the comment section of JEMi’s “In My Heels” where I found this blog.

The author is Sara and her blog is: On Simplicity.

  3. I just discovered Sara’s blog over the weekend and enjoyed it as well. We’re basically in the same “niche” as they say in bloggerworld, and it’s always interesting to read how others are dealing with too much stuff and what feels like not enough time.

    Hi Sara,

    It’s great to see you here. I love your writings on finding and creating simplicity in our lives. Can we ever get enough advice on how to accomplish that which makes our lives less complicated?

    Hi Natural,

    I think you’ll enjoy Sara’s blog.

    Hi Ann,

    Too much stuff…not enough time. Isn’t that the truth? Maybe if I keep reading all of the “simplicity” blogs, I’ll get to the point where I find that balance. 😆

    I’m happy to hear you like my choice.

  7. Hello, Sara :)

    I remember one of the topics my pastor talked about very well – “simplicity.”

    It’s always resonated with me.

  8. Thank you for highlighting Sara’s blog. I’m now subscribed to her. I’m a sucker for the topic myself and was already inspired by her great posts.

    Man, I need more time to read all those cool blogs more often. Trouble is, I get lost in them and before I know it, two hours have passed by like minutes. :-)

    You sound like me. The time flies by when we find great blogs, doesn’t it. There’s so much to learn and so many are willing to share. Oh, to have more hours in a day.
