Fresh Start: Less But Far More

Posted in inspiration

To me, sometimes a fresh start can be the same as a clean room and organized schedule. Other times, it takes a little more effort and thought.

My intention with this self-challenge is to inspire and make room for the most important things in my life. J and I have been married for two months but still (obviously) learning life together – we’ll always be learning. That means devoting intentional time together, being mindful of words, behavior, and how we spend our resources.

We all have goals, to get more organized, feel inspired, eat healthier, read more. BUT we also want a less complicated and burdened life! They seem to make the perfect oxymoron. With October almost over, that means two months until the end of 2014.

There’s a quote from Jesus Calling that inspires and challenges this series.

“How much better is it to walk close to Me, depending on My strength and trusting Me in every situation. If you live in this way, you will do less but accomplish far more. Your unhurried pace of living will stand out in this rush-crazed age. Some people may deem you lazy, but many more will be blessed by your peacefulness. Walk in the Light with Me, and you will reflect Me to the watching world.”

It’s not about adding more to do our to do list, but freeing up our lives of things that simply aren’t as important for what is important. I hope each post that comes out of this self-challenge inspires you in some small way to accomplish your goals or simplify things to make an unhurried life.

Here’s to a fresh start….
