My answers to Polina’s questions are as follows:
1.What is your top simple pleasure?
A. My top pleasure is most definitely writing. When the words flow out, I can physically feel the outpouring of my heart and the joy it gives me is unparalleled.
2. What are your grateful for today?
A. I am grateful that God has blessed me with a talent and that it helps me connect with people from all over the world.
3. Name a book that has inspired you to make changes in your life.
A. ‘The Secret’.
4. Do you own something you don’t need or love but can’t bear to get rid of?
A. Not really. It’s easy for me to let go of things I don’t need.
5. What is your consumption weakness i.e. what can you just not resist from buying every time?
A. Clothes and Books.
6. Finish the sentence: “I am grateful that I do not own…”
A. An unloving heart, simply because the ability to love is very, very important.

A. My laptop, because it’s my best writing tool. My books, because they are my best friends. And my clothes! I just love my clothes.
8. What is the top thing cluttering your life at the moment?
A. Routine housework. I like doing things around the house, but I feel that at this point, it’s taking away a lot of time that I could have used to write and read.
9. Is there any part of your life you’d like to simplify, such as work, hobbies, social outings, personal projects etc. ?
A. I am on a decluttering project as you can gather from my blog. So right now, I’m okay because things seem simple enough.
