Five years ago i learnt a way of life called minimalism and I decided to practice it.
The first few months were horrible because I had to declutter and that was a lot of work. Making the few things I had left work for me was also a struggle but I eventually conquered.
Living a minimalist lifestyle, I was happy and free. It did me so much good, I even had more time and energy to work out and take care of not only my body but my mind.
So what happened?
All of a sudden I began loosing focus, I accumulated. Because I was going through a tough transition at some point in my life, I stopped caring and began inviting every piece of junk to my life. This junk was things I bought, people I kept around and the information I fed my mind in form of social media.
Bit by bit this baggage of junk got so much and overwhelming. I couldn’t keep up anymore. I was defeated.
After a long time of hoarding and gathering, I feel like it’s time to declutter. It’s time go back to what made me happy.
Keep things that add value to my life and letting go all of the distractions.
This is my second journey to minimalism.
