Summer months

Summer months!  A time of holidays and summer fun, making resolutions and laughing at the cold days and dark nights of winter.

I declare there is less darkness around me this month (well it is summer and the position of the sun … the summer solstice …  the seasons and climate … blah … blah … blah) and I now see more lightness and clarity.

See -it is true, less is more.  Less night-time, more day-time.

In my preparation for my good intentions 2013 I have discovered that –

  • “That which is less complicated is often better understood and more appreciated that what is more complicated. Simplicity is preferable to complexity”. (Ludwig Mies Van de Rohe) According to Wiktionary, this was the motto of the aforementioned Ludwig.
  • “Live simply so more can simply live”.  I am often drawn back to this quote when I become aware that I am starting to live a life of waste and excess again.
  • There is an organisation in Santa Barbara called Less is MoreThey work to reduce, reuse and recycle and promote themselves as the ultimate recycling resource.  They even give information on their website on how/where to recycle your Christmas tree.  How about that!
  • Australians Greg and Sophie are blogging about their simple lives and quest to live with less. Here is a link to their blog.
I like the flower of the Summer thistle .. not everyone's favourite flora!

The flower of the Summer thistle .. I like this flower although it is not everyone’s favourite flora!

 I resolve to make less of each day (more of each moment) .. to be content ..  to reduce waste .. to simplify my life and to live by the ‘less is more’ principle!!

About holistic complications

I like to work on a personal goal or challenge each year .. learning from my previous experiences, I try and face my fears, to stretch myself and step forward, to create a more holistic and authentic life, living with good intentions - a clear, honest and 'real' life! I want to be more accountable for the life I live and create! My experience of being real and authentic are quite complicated at times!! I blog to share my blunders, experiences and ideas and to gain some insight from the self reflection that the process of blogging creates for me.
