The results of minimizing my life are starting to show up. Not just in how my house looks. Because, to be honest, the house is often still messy. Messy with this morning's art craft, or last night's laundry, or tonight's dinner preparation.
As this happens, I'm still learning. I'm learning about what I want out of minimalism itself. The goal isn't necessarily to have a spotless house. Anyone with happy kids knows that's nearly impossible. I don't mind if my house looks "lived in". Because it is lived in, four people live here. I don't want it to be trashed, but I don't want it to look like a display house for a new subdivision either.
I've worked through different areas of the house at different times. But I have to say I've spent a lot of my energy on the kitchen and living room. And it's paying off big time! The space is much easier to clean, but that's not what's really making the difference. The difference is my anxiety level. My peace of mind. Not only mine, but it seems to be catching. I'm not sure if it's the difference in the environment or my attitude, but the Huntsman seems more at ease in the evenings too.
The more results I see, the more motivated I am to continue!
