Minimalist Monday: A New Start

Almost 5 years ago I had an epiphany. I discovered minimalism and started reducing my possessions, my workload and my commitments. You can read how it started here.

Since 2012 I've been writing about my minimalist journey here at Just a little less and sharing it with you. I do this because I'm passionate about simplifying and also because I love writing, photography and the interaction I get from readers. I've learnt so much from you it's amazing. 

This weekend I've had another epiphany of sorts. Taking time away from routine, familiar surroundings and spending less time online has led me to realise that I need to start working on fresh ideas that I have for this blog. Now. 

My plans include a thorough (once and for all) declutter of my home (before the school summer holidays in 10 weeks time) and writing about different aspects of well-being. As I approach 50 this is becoming more important to me. 

It's a personal project but one I hope you can follow and join in with too. All will be revealed soon.

I need to be accountable and also to remain true to the original intention I had for this blog which was to inspire others. 

Many things about Just a little less will remain the same, don't worry, but I just wanted to let you know where I'm coming from in case you notice a slight shift. If you have any questions please ask!

Have a great week. Be happy xo

  2. I'm also with you Claire. I was 50 last year. Your blog really enlightens me somehow! I can't put my finger on what it is but I really enjoy reading about your simplifying and de-cluttering. Meanwhile my own, so very hard, de-cluttering continues!! (Mrs LH)

  11. I don't think you need to change much, your blog is brilliant and as fresh and interesting as it ever was! While I don't always do things in the way you do (like the wardrobe de-clutters) I'm always interested in your reasoning behind things and always find something here that I can take away and think about. xx
