Even as adults there is something in the air at “back to school” time. Empty notebooks and brand new pens speak to new beginnings and getting back to a familiar routine after the summer’s adventures. Though the memories of summer are sweet, fall brings its own kind of magic – from its celebrations to the foods to the pumpkin spiced everything!
Fall reminds us that it’s the simple things in life that keep us grounded. That the act of setting and re-setting goals and priorities at the start of the season is enticing. It’s a great time to sweep away the clutter and get back to a simpler way of life – ahead of the end of year holidays. And as we move into the fall season, just like children, we drink up those last days of summer and celebrate learning in new ways.
Letting go of clutter is one way to release the psychological clutter as well. Let your clean slate start at home. One of our featured authors, Marie Kondo, who wrote The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, says, “The question of what you want to own is actually the question of how you want to live your life.” That’s a simple idea with enormous impact!
Could that extra room where you’ve been storing “stuff” be the key to unlocking a more stable financial future for you? Could you house share with a roommate and make the money you need to live the life you’ve always wanted? Would simplifying and selling “stuff” put some cash in the bank?
At Silvernest we are embracing simplicity and “going back to school” with great blogs from friends old and new, tips and books to help us get us on track, and inspiration ranging from recipes to travel to cleaning up. It’s all designed to prep your nest for the rest of the year and help you revel in the joy of Fall!
Welcome to September!
