Today’s Word: candid

☆  candid  ありのままの


When you are candid about something, you speak honestly. I think this week’s quote is very candid. “You don’t need more space, you need less stuff.” (Carrie Higgins). This is so true, and honest, and yet, I think a lot of people would be offended or upset if someone said something so candid to them.

Whenever I hear someone say they are moving house, it is always (OK, 90% of the time) because the “need more space.” I almost fell into that trap last year! We have a 3-bedroom house and a big garden, so we definitely don’t need more space, but it’s easy to think that we do because there are five people and two dogs in our family. But, honestly, no! Just like this quote, we don’t need more space, we just need less stuff.

How about you? Do you feel like you need more space? Would you be upset if someone said something like this candid quote to you?
