All right, so I was not planning on talking about this a whole lot but it seems to have generated enough questions to explain a little.
I decided, last week, that I would go on a fast. I do this in the spring, usually. Not because I put it on my calendar or anything but because my body seems to ask for it around the same time of the year.
So, I lighten up.
This year, as I was getting ready to start, I felt compelled to add another element to this quiet time of simplicity. I would go on a money fast as well.
As I got my kitchen ready for a few days of non-activity, I got my mind - and life - ready for a few days of no money activity as well.
I bought dog food, paid some bills, put a little bit of gas in my car - and put my wallet away.
And it's been great. Easy. Simple. Clean.
The fact that this is a rare week of solitude in my home has been perfect for this.
Actually, except for a couple of clients, a walk with my daughter and quick hugs with friends, I have been on a bit of a people fast, too.
How do I feel?
A little funny.
A little floaty.
I like it.
