This time of year tends to be focused on decluttering, simplifying, and torture (usually in the form of some overly zealous diet resolutions) which is usually because we all partied, celebrated, and splurged a bit too much in December, but January doesn’t have to be about self deprecation and retribution. Simplifying our lives is good if it means that we get rid of what is no longer useful and embrace all the things that really make our days on this earth worth living.
I’ve been talking a lot lately about luxury and glam, which many people associate with extravagance but really the truly luxurious things in our lives come from within us and our attitudes towards what we have. True luxury is not for sale. It is an idea, a feeling, and a thing or moment that feels undefinably exquisite, rather than something that is used to sell things for a higher price tag. Some of the must luxurious moments of our lives are the quiet ones, when we pull away, take time to read a book, soak in a bubble bath, and spend time with the people who make us the happiest. That is true luxury.
Focus this year on that. Take time to dance, to sing at the top of your lungs in the shower, to take slow bites of a delicious dessert, try a new hair style, and to fill your days will the simple things that cannot be taken away.
