Friday Focus: Creating Space

Happy Friday! I hope it’s been a good week for you…. ours has been a flurry of work and cramming for summer midterms (which happen about once a week in summer school!). I don’t really know where the time has gone, and apparently my dislike of our busy-ness is reflected in my reading choices, because everything I’ve been drawn to is about slowing down and making room for what matters most:

Afford Anything posted a lovely piece last month about curating your life. I love the idea of carefully selecting what enters (and what stays) in our lives, as a way to avoid overwhelm.

An article at Be More With Less from last year addresses the how, of life curation, with  some creative and gentle suggestions for making cuts.

Wrapping up the theme, Mr. Money Moustache offers some less gentle but no less effective ways to make space for the badassity in your life.

Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to slow down a little bit this weekend, and put some of these ideas into practice!
