DISCLAIMER: I AM AN ASPIRING MINIMALIST. I AM NOT A MINIMALISM EXPERT. I KNOW A LITTLE, BUT I DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING. MY LIFE IS NOT PERFECT. I AM LEARNING. I WANT TO HELP OTHERS LEARN TOO.
Ya'll, please keep in mind all of this is a work in progress. Mastering simplicity and mindfulness it is an ongoing, evolving process. Minimalism just as much of a lifestyle as it is a philosophy, a mindset. It is about seeing the world with fresh new eyes, and then ideally- changing one's behaviors to fit those same perspectives. And it takes practice, practice, practice.
As a "recovering consumerist", there is a lifetime of growth and learning ahead of me. There are endless varying levels and degrees for improvement. Each of our paths will be different but in the end it is all the same goal: to simplify the bliss.
There are no rights and wrongs. It is all about the JOURNEY- the ups, the downs, the inevitable achievements, the unavoidable slip ups, all of the challenges and the A-HA moments in between. There is not some final destination of pure happiness and enlightenment (that I know of).
This is not about "giving up everything and having nothing". It is about being conscious and intentional with each thought and action.
Simple? Yes! Easy? NO.
Thank you for following along. Thank you for your support. Thank you for acceptance and non-judgement. And most of all, thank you for trusting the process. We can do this!
Love & Light (and less)
