You want to go home and rethink your life

The rethinking life part is right on. At the moment, I'm actually on vacation, in someone else's home. It's easier to rethink my life with some distance from daily habits and plans, I find. Normally, I make plans and think of new ideas... then promptly get distracted by work, plans, and people. Here, I help tidy up, and have good conversations, and have so much more mental space to wonder about who I want to be and what I want my life to look like. I've also thoroughly enjoyed spending hours cleaning out my photo collection (three years of travelling and living in Europe = more than 20,000 high-resolution photos) and reading blogs (especially zenhabits and lovingsimpleliving.) The last few months have been full of travelling, work (at multiple part time jobs) and then moving house, so the peace here is fantastic.

Along with all the inspiration to simplify life, I found a cool challenge on homelifesimplified - 52 Weeks To Simplify Your Life. The challenge is supposed to cover inner/mental clutter, relationships, and possessions (among others), with a healthy dose of reflection. Looking forward to seeing what answers and ideas burble up through that....
