Some of you have asked why I do not have a list of links on the sidebar of my blog so I guess I will answer that. I do not like clutter. I already look at my blog somedays and think I should remove something so it is clean and crisp. I create things to add to the side, put them up and then, within a day, they are removed. Too much “stuff.”
I guess this speaks volumes about me as a person as well. I do not like extra “stuff” in my life. I thought about signing the kids up for swimming or diving or other fun summer activities, but I only thought about it. Once I get to really doing it, I can not stand the idea of being busy with a bunch of extra clutter. I know the kids would enjoy it, I also happen to know they think they have a pretty good life without all of that.
These are little things and I would be ok with a little extra, but I also know that this translates to other areas of my life. I like to take what is most important to me and junk the stuff I don’t need. Some people in my family tease me that I throw everything away. That is true to an extent. I do strive to keep only what I need physically, emotionally & psychologically. (Notice I did not mention intellectually, I take all the help I can get in that department!) I have noticed that living my life this way leaves little room for unhappiness. Of course things still get to me, but I am learning to throw them away so all I am left with is what makes me happy. So for now, there are no links. I guess I don’t need them.
