Last year I took the Mondo Beyondo course. I got a lot out of it, but I also let most of it just sit there. I read through my lessons and participated in the workshops and exercises but didn’t go much further. I needed the information at the time, not the action.
Now it’s time for action on some of that information and this summer I’m creating a clearing. Very intentionally actually, as we pair down our belongings to what we NEED and not what we have room for. I’ve been burdened by stuff for so long and with kids running afoot, the things I do have need to hold up to rigorous games of chase and markers. I’m not interested in owning something to own it. A simpler life, a life that leads to a more whole family, a better environment and a more whole me.
I feel this is more of a calling on my self and spirit than it is on my calling into the world that I need these things to feel better. Feelings and me, we jive and dance, some times too much. Less is always more and it’s time for that to take effect in other areas, as it already has in some.
I’m excited for whatever the next season brings – not only in our lives, but in our open hearts as well.
