The opposite of more, of course, is less.
Less creates space.
Room to breathe.
Blank spaces can inspire.
One thing I often notice when I go to someone else's home is how uncluttered it is. This is something I really struggle with - so most homes I visit are noticeably less cluttered than mine. I've been watching for it and observing it...and desiring to bring it home.
I notice clear counters. Ahem. Definitely a weakness for me.
I notice more space and less in it. Clear space to breathe, to enjoy the space we have available and to live life in those spaces. Whether it is blanks on the calendar, counters in the kitchen or letting one photo speak volumes over scores of pictures speaking only fragments.
Excess is stifling ~ space is life-giving.
