Makes me think about how many things in our life we are reluctant to part with because we're afraid of dishonoring a loved one.
"Don't want to get rid of that sweater...I got that from my Mom."
Yeah, 8 years ago and I haven't worn it in 7 years.
"Yes, I know there's a chip in that vase, but I got that from my sister."
Even though every time I put flowers in it, I can't help being distracted by it.
"Yes, I know that he builds something for me every week, but my grandson loves to build things."
Even though when he leaves here, he totally forgets about it.
"Yes, I know there is weekly artwork on my fridge, but I want him to know how much I love his art."
Even though he forgets what the artwork was all about within days.

That's the whole idea of my word of the year, SIMPLIFY. And I've been slowly but surely working at simplifying my surroundings. But I'll admit that it's not easy. And sometimes I have to wait to be in the mood. But once I start, I love the results.
So, why is it so hard to just keep going??
