Less is more and quality vs. quantity are lessons I’ve been learning over and over again, pretty much all of my adult life. For example, I started drinking coffee in college. At one point, I realized that having a better cup of coffee fewer times a day was a better choice.
Clothing choices is another way I’ve adopted a “less is more” strategy. About 15 years ago, I began eliminating color from my wardrobe. Most of the time you’ll see me in either black, gray, and sometimes beige. The only color I ever wear, however, is blue and that’s usually in the form of a pair of jeans. This conscious choice simplifies the daily process of getting ready.
Recently, I downsized my home and, in the process (this was a conscious choice), I gave up three big storage closets. A total blessing because I had to get rid of even more stuff. I’m now free from a lot of maintenance that comes with caring for a home. The outside maintenance is taken care of by the community management and, inside, my furnishings are minimal so cleaning is a breeze!
What’s something in your life that you can think about in terms of having less that would result in a better quality of life and get to do more of life’s pleasures?
