What?!? Just last week I wrote that “Less is More”! And now here I am writing the exact opposite. The truth is that I think most of the time less is more. We fill our lives with way too much— too much junk, too many time commitments, too many distractions. Occasionally though, adding something to our lives is the right thing to do. In these instances, more ends up being good, it can even be life giving.
I know, you are probably thinking “I am just wrapping my mind around the idea of simplifying, and now you are telling me instead to add more?!?” Yes and no. It is important early on in the simplifying process to acknowledge that it isn’t all or nothing. I am not advocating for a life of isolation. I am advocating for a life of intention.
