I’m a minimalist!Aug 21, 2017
Well, not yet, but I will be.
I’ve recently taken on a 21 day minimalism challenge.
In case you’re not familiar with minimalism, here’s how The Minimalists describe it:
“Minimalism is a freedom from fear. Freedom from worry. Freedom from overwhelm. Freedom from guilt. Freedom from depression. Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around. Real freedom.”
In essence, minimalism removes all the clutter and things that don’t serve you so that you can focus on and make room for what does.
I started this blog as a journal that would depict my “quarter-life comeback”, but until now, I wasn’t really sure where and how to begin. All I knew was that I need clarity in my life. This challenge allows me to do just that by stripping away all of the things that don’t matter and don’t get me closer to my goals.
Here’s an outline of my 21 day challenge:
