As a general wrap-up I think this month went really well. It was WAY easier than giving up coffee last month, it didn’t inhibit anything about my lifestyle, and I don’t think anyone would have actually noticed if I didn’t tell them about it. I did cheat once, last Saturday night, I was just dying to wear jeans and a gold sweater out…so I called it a “Halloween” night to dress up, gave myself the one free pass, and had fun.
I just want to quickly remind both you and myself that a big part of why I’m doing this is because there are millions of people in this world who have even less than what I’m limiting myself to in these months. The amount of excess we live in is both astonishing and kind of disgusting. I’m going to bet right now that after eliminating all the things next month (210 to be exact) that our house won’t even look different. As I get further into this I realize even more-so how much stuff we (both Wil and I, and we as a culture) really have and it’s appalling. I’m going to do my best to think about this even more, and go beyond what this challenge originally called for. I always find peace in simplicity, and since that’s a huge goal of mine for this year…let’s get to it! Happy Wednesday friends :-) XXOO
