I know I talk about the challenge all the time, but I can’t seem to help it. It revolutionized my life. I was constantly pushed out of my comfort zone and forced to say no to my wants. That might sound terrible (and sometimes it felt that way), but it was so…wonderful at the same time.
I miss it.
Yet I’ve come to the realization it’s not so much the challenge itself I miss as the idea behind it. The pushing and prodding and intentional decision to limit myself. I crave simplicity and the change it brings.
So I’ve started a little experiment. For 31 days, I’ll simplify one part of my daily life by reducing, automating, or delegating. First up? Meal planning. Let the simple focus begin.
