Good morning, all!

Today I’m excited to have a guest post — “Simplicity DIYs (you’ve been to scared to try)”– at Courtney Carver’s lovely site, Be More with Less:  life on purpose. Thank you, Courtney, for this opportunity!

I happily redirect you there to read and get the goodness:

5 simplicity DIYs (you’ve been too scared to try)

Our relationship to our stuff (including our money, possessions and time) is indicative of what we value.

There’s little room for the ABCs of living fully (paying attention / breaking free / celebrating what is) with your disabilities (or someone else’s) if you’re mired in debt, drowning in a sea of excess possessions, and dashing from obligation to obligation.

Further, children and adults with autism, Fragile X, and other neurological disorders thrive in an environment that is simple and uncluttered, with a schedule that is well-paced and consistent. There’s a tendency toward sensory overload and frustration for them if their environment is jam-packed and their schedule is harried or frantic. (Actually, that’s true for most of us not ‘on the spectrum’, myself included!)

From Courtney’s “about” page:

“Be more with less is a blog about simplifying your life and really living. Here, you can learn how to create a life with more savings and less no debt, more health and less stress, more time and less stuff, and more joy with less obligation.”

Sites like Courtney’s have helped me grow in my appreciation of (and sensitivity to) what really matters.

Read on at the link above, and enjoy!
