It started with a song, at sunrise

As with many of the best things in life, it all started with a song, at sunrise.

In 2015 I attended a “Secret Sunrise” gathering, to listen to music and dance for an hour as the sun came up. As the dancing ended, the DJ played the last track. It was Why Your Life Is Not A Journey by Alan Watts & David Lindberg. And the sun rose.

I was standing in a meadow with the first rays of sun reaching over the top of the surrounding mountains as I listened to these words of Alan Watts. Words urging me to live a life of richness. It was one of those rare and magical moments that happenen every so often in life. A beautiful and life-changing pause.  I decided in that meadow to start living more simply. Alan Watts’ words gave me the nudge I had needed to put into action the theory about Minimalism that I had been reading for years.

I decided to start to create a simple and beautiful life for myself and my family. 

I want to create breathing space by decluttering material stuff.  I want to create head space by simplifying the days as they fly by.  I want to work towards a more financially frugal way of life. I want to respect our bodies by eating tasty, nutritious food. And I want to be open to other changes that may happen as the journey evolves.

If in writing down our progress others are inspired to turn towards Simplicity, that will add immensely to the journey.

Since I wrote that the journey HAS evolved. Here is our Scattered to Serene freebie which focuses on simple habit shifts and self-focus to help you create a lighter, brighter life.
