Less Stuff, More Love

I can't believe it's almost February. What a fun, whirlwind month this has been.

February gets me all lovey feeling. I've always had a soft spot for Valentine's Day, even when it didn't turn up roses for me (pretty much all of high school). It's not just about romantic love either. February makes me want to love my babies more, love my friends more, love my life more. I just want to bury others and be buried in piles of love.

I get weird like that sometimes.

This year, I'm thinking about love in a whole different way. I'm noticing the way minimalism and intentionality are making me love my life more. I feel like the less stuff I have, the more space I have to love, mentally and physically.

So I've decided to do a little minimalist challenge for the month of February, and I would love it if you would join me. It's supposed to be a 30-day Minimalist Game, but I feel a little less intimidated by a 28-day one.

Basically, you get rid of one item on day one, two on day two, all the way up to the end of the month. I'm bending the rules a bit by not getting rid of each item by the end of the day (I have two kids, ain't nobody got time for a daily trip to the Goodwill drop-off) but it will all be gone by the end of the month.

If you plan on playing, leave your twitter handle (or blog) in the comments and use #MinsGame for your posts so we can check in on our progress together. I'll meet you here next month. Let's make February a month for less stuff and more love.
