The Beautiful Minimalism of a Blank Slate
Leo Babauta has a wonderful take on the new year.
What would you like to do with the minimalist blank slate of this new year?
Do you want to fill it with distractions, or keep only the most important work, relationships, commitments?
Do you want to be constantly checking social media, or would you like to read long-form writing and books, perhaps create something new?
Do you want to be more mindful? More compassionate? More whole-hearted in your relationships?
Do you want to be more active, eat more healthy, nourishing food? Get outdoors more, find more solitude?
Do you want to have greater focus for your meaningful work? Be more organized?
Simplify your life? Get your finances in order?
Pick just a handful. Spread them out over the year. Don’t overfill the year with a list of 20 things you want to do — savor the space of your blank slate.
