Motherhood is a crazy blur with a few quiet moments thrown in that make you realize how time is fleeting and you should quiet down and enjoy it more.
Most people don’t though. Most people wake up the next morning to the crazy blur and let it erase the memory of that sweet, quiet moment. They let it take them away from what matters most – the hearts of the people they love. They get re-busy and don’t slow down again until the next quiet, scary moment when they realize once again that time is fleeting and they’re missing things.
None of us want to be “most people” – I sure don’t. But isn’t it so hard?
There are things that need to get done and places we have to get to… it’s just, busy. What are we supposed to do?
I’m no expert, but I can tell you one thing for sure. Simplifying everywhere I can has transformed my entire life.
I simplified my whole house and became a different person – one who doesn’t yell so much or feel stretched super thin every day. A person who walks into her house and feels at peace instead of overwhelmed.
I simplified, eating clean foods and moving my body more often, and quickly lost forty pounds.
I simplified my kids’ toys and the way we do childhood in our house. My kids have closer relationships with each other, and with the other people in their lives.
They know how to imagine worlds, make up stories, create art, and explore the outdoors. They’re more in tune with their natural gifts and skills, they’re more grateful, and they’re more self-sufficient.
I learned through experience over the past five years in my search for simple in all areas of life, that those most deeply impacted by the gift of less are the kids.
Let me ask you, what do you want as you raise your children? And based on that, where are you currently going?
Do you want your kids to grow up a little differently than kids today are growing up – with imaginations and the desire to get outside and play?
Do you want to understand why less is truly more when it comes to your kids’ toys?
Do you want simple, applicable ways you can declutter the toys without scarring them?
Do you want to inspire imagination and creativity in your home?
Do you want solutions for remaining uncluttered once you’re done purging when kids seem to bring home so much STUFF all the time?
If your answer is yes, you’re in the right place, friend. I so understand those desires.
I’ve found a way to get there in this crazy modern world, oversaturated with technology and loud, distracting toys that do all the imagining for our kids. You CAN simplify here and give your kids the beautiful gift of less.
I recently hosted an online class all about minimalism, simplifying the toys, and what it all does for your kids. If you want to learn how you can move from where your family is now to actually decluttering the toys in a way that doesn’t have anyone crying, this is for you.
Just click the button below and you’ll get access to the class recording.
In the class, I go over why minimalism is such a gift for your kids, and even talk about scientific experiments that have been done to prove it. Then we get into the nitty gritty of HOW you can make the changes in your home, because I want you to take real action, not just sit and listen then leave feeling like you don’t know what to do.
Give your kids the gift of less clutter, of more imagination, more play. Kids were made to play – they’re naturals at it! We just have to get out of the way and clear a space for it to happen. 🙂
