My Minimalist Journey to Realizing Minimalism Isn’t About the Stuff

I have struggled to find the words over the last few years to really explain what minimalism means to me. When I read books on the topic or see blog posts or tips on how to practice minimalism I feel like most of the stuff only scratches the surface. Have less. Own less. Clear your space. But why. Can we talk more about the why. Is there a way to make people realize this actually isn’t about the stuff? How do you find the words to say that? “Yeah, I mean, I don’t own much stuff but it doesn’t really have anything to do with my stuff or my home or clutter…Well, kind of the clutter. That shit drives me crazy.” I haven’t quite yet found my voice as you can tell, but, let’s give this a try and maybe we’ll both learn something.

There are so many times in life where we chase goals. We have this vision of who we want to be and the life we want to have. That is beautiful. However, what tends to happen is that we chase a goal for the wrong reason. We never truly take a moment to get quiet with ourselves, tap into what our deepest desires are and therefore when we reach the goal or achieve the success it falls flat. These are stories we have heard time and time again from 6-figure Wall Street earners to people who bought their dream home only to sell it and downsize a year later. So, how do we avoid the fallout? What can we do to side-step the whole crash and burn? The hint is in enjoying the process itself.

What the Toy Shortage of 2021 is Really Telling Us this Christmas

If you haven’t heard the news yet, we are in preparation for even more shortages in 2021. This time the main panic is around a toy shortage this Christmas. At this point in the Covid pandemic, we aren’t really strangers to shortages. Empty shelves at the supermarket, fights breaking out over toilet paper. Are any of us really surprised that there might not be toys at Christmas? While we have been through the ringer when it comes to surviving the pandemic madness, it’s my belief that the toy shortage is really telling us something far bigger than we realize.

Decorate Your Home with Sentimental Stuff You’re Not Ready to Let Go Of

Let’s be honest, the hardest struggle for most people when it comes to decluttering is letting go of sentimental items. We carry around things that people we love once bought us. Sometimes we carry around the things that once belonged to someone we love. A lot of times we attach our possessions to people and without knowing it can be carrying around a lot of excess baggage that really isn’t serving any purpose. Well, once we downsized our house I decided it was time to stop storing that stuff and start displaying it. Instead of holding onto sentimental items, I was ready to start displaying them in a way that felt authentic and showed people who I am. Here are some ideas to get you started.
