Yesterday (several days ago, now) as I was reading through the blogs on my list I realized that I seem to have two different people living within me. Or atleast two distinctly different sets of interest. One set of links focuses on consumption and building up collections and generally buying things that aren't necessary. This group is at complete odds with the other group which is all about simplifying and living deliberately. I struggle with how best to balance these two. My end goal isn't to reduce my life to having only what is absolutely necessary. I enjoy having a beautiful home and things that bring me joy. What's more, I think it is vital for me to have an artistic outlet. However, I have a tendency to spend what feels to me like too much money on supplies for my artistic outlet!! So, I wonder if there is a happy medium?? What is it for me?
