My net is shrinking.
Maybe it is the stage I am at in my life. Maybe it is the limited amount of time I have for extra things. And I am not ruling out impatience.
I have fewer things as Geo and I are in a complete thinning-out frenzy around here. Every closet has been sliced and diced. We do not have a garage. Not a scrap of stuff in the attic.
This has translated into my personal life. Family, church, work, friends, exercise, and writing here on my blog. Not much more than that is needed, I find. A good small collection of what matters. And even within each category I feel like there has been some dieting.
I like a more minimal life. It feels fuller, ironically.
Less navigating through stacks of things wondering if they are worth keeping. What is worth keeping finds its way into my life without so much work, because it isn't hidden behind things.
I can pull my own net with one hand, even when it is full of everything I value.
