Less is truly more... Ask Mother Teresa

The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance. It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy.

- Mother Teresa

Wow. This is so true, and yet so hard for me to live out. As I struggle to let go of those possessions, activities & behaviours that no longer feed me or that become distractions, the goal is to make more room in my life for those things that really matter. (I'll let you know if/when I figure out what those things are! :)

Until tomorrow,
