Thursday 13- Every year I get rid of more and more- donate, give to family , I live a minimalist life

Traits of a minimalist***

 stop buying unnecessary

toss half your stuff - you do not need it all

learn peace in contentedness

reduce half your things AGAIN

List 4 big essentials in your life and do these first 

Stop doing non essential things

Clear your desk and life of distractions 

Focus and live in the moment  , memorize it 

let go of attachment to doing and having !!

Fall in love with less

See how  lovely objects in your home stand out more with less around them 

remove clutter in every room

Will this food add fuel to my life ??

(Think how much easier cleaning will be ??)

“Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.” —Will Rogers

The average American home size has doubled in the past 50 years. Still10% of households rent offsite storage and 25% of homeowners with two-car garages can’t park cars in them. 76% of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck. And the average US household credit card debt stands at$15,191.

Can you keep a secret??

I can ..

Your trustworthiness equals  secret keeping at times .As you are likely in a diplomatic mood, you may feel little need to share others' secrets with those who approach you for confirmation of confidential information. The individuals most important to you will no doubt come to appreciate your tact, and they may even grow increasingly comfortable confiding in you as a result. You can honor the faith others place in you today by abiding by it when you feel tempted to let slip those secrets that seem comparably unimportant.

Your discretion is precious in that it allows you to serve as a confidant to those who care about you even when the information you receive could be valuable to you in other ways. Many people find the temptation to tell others' secrets too strong to resist and lose loved ones as a result of their unbridled gregariousness. We can be sure that we do not suffer a similar fate by endeavoring to be as trustworthy as possible when we find ourselves on the receiving end of revelations concerning our relatives or friends. Though we may ardently wish for an opportunity to unburden ourselves on another, we should always be cognizant of the fact that the faith of our loved ones lies at the heart of the secrets with which they have entrusted us. Your diplomatic and discreet approach to information passed in confidence will help you live up to the trust others place in you today.
