Finally, I have come to start my little 2015 experiment.
In the first week of this year, I have been doing some last preparation towards this experiment. First, of course, came setting up this pretty little blog, which does not only function as me telling you what I have been up to, but also as a very good reminder to myself: I may try to forget my resolution, but if there is people on the other end waiting for my next post, how can I possibly opt out anymore?
I have also sorted 99% of my former possessions from my parents’ home and determined, now finally, what I want to keep and what needs to go. Any of you who were moving out for the first time have done this before in their lives. With me, it is even harder, as anything of my childhood possessions I wish to keep has to fit in a suitcase to go back flying from Germany to Scotland! I spent about great parts of three days being ruthless with memory-loaded clutter. I count this as a start into a new life with less stuff and more awareness. But the clutter-free journey is just about beginning!
I hope you are enjoying what you will be reading over the next 12 months and I wouldn’t be sad if it inspires you to reflect over your own live style just as I started to reflect last autumn.
