Clothes and Clutter

This post is about decluttering in the home; a subject that a friend opened my eyes to on her own blog. In the past, you may’ve read about my efforts this year to ‘declutter’ my workshop and the impending ‘loss’ of such a feature of my life has only helped to encourage that. For whatever amount of time I have left, I enjoy my time and my space that much more for the reduction of clutter and sheer reliance only on the more-essential of items. I no longer have to worry about that spray gun I hadn’t used since 2009, or the duplicates of cordless drills lying under almost every shelf. I’ve gained money that I can reinvest in more meaningful areas.

High on a Hill

Meditation has become something that is quite significant within my life. It’s not something I practice as often as I feel I should and I find I am at my best when I’m at a centre with a dedicated time and space for meditation.

Meditating up on Crook Peak, Somerset.
