As I mentioned in a previous post, our family theme this year is “Less is More” which is going to require me to help my husband, children (and myself!) to purge, declutter, and in general “simplify” our daily living. To help me commit to this endeavor, I have decided to do a Sunday post each week, simply titled… Simplify.
Today, I began the decluttering process in our Master Bedroom. Oh there are certainly more “public” areas of our home that need to be tackled, but after some serious contemplation, I decided that our Master Bedroom should be the place to start as it should be our retreat at the end of a long, tiring, but productive day.
I removed stuffed animals, Duplo pieces, and many many artistic renditions produced by our highly creative daughter. BUT, the children are now aware that Mommy & Daddy’s bedroom is a “no play zone”! By SIMPLY enforcing some boundaries (easier said than done!), my husband and I should now experience some peace and tranquility in our bedroom.
Today is also the day in the United States when we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany; the day when God was manifested to the world in the form of the infant, Jesus, to the Magi or Three Kings. Could anything else be simpler?
