I am in a lot of Facebook groups that focus on frugal living, non consumerism, hygge and housekeeping. Since January 1, it seems like the main topic of conversation in all of those groups is the Netflix show about organizing your life and getting rid of your stuff. I feel like the only person on the planet who has not watched it yet. I refuse to watch it at this point out of principle. I have enough guilt, I don’t need somebody telling me that getting rid all of my stuff will make me happy, I am very happy as it is. As with all things in life, moderation is key, even minimalism. It feels like another trend that will lose its steam and something else will take it’s place.
Instead, I am choosing to just let life lead me where it will. Keeping my to do list short and attainable and allowing myself to savor the season of winter with its promise of coziness and warmth. It’s a cold night out there tonight and I plan on ending this day, in my unorganized room, reading a book. Tomorrow is always another day.
