Ok, so it’s been 6 months since I last posted anything. Oops.
I really don’t have a good excuse. Life happens.
What’s important is that I’m back with lots of more tips to share with you amd more ideas for what I want to do with this blog, so I hope you stick around!
An update on life in general:
- We moved to Utah. We are in a two bedroom duplex and are way ignorant of how we are going to survive the winter.
- Jordan is working and is expected to start school in January.
- While I’ve been sort of MIA here on the blog, I’ve still been doing stuff. I actually became a representative for a company that sells makeup. Cue the eyerolls. Let me first tell you, I had no plans to ever join a direct sales company, and only signed up after doing research and finding that the company’s mission aligned with my own values. I’ll share more on what this new gig is later on.
- The kids are giving me a run for my money. I already knew parenting was no walk in the park. I just didn’t realize that being a mom of 2 boys would throw my life into chaos overdrive. So that’s been fun trying to figure out what to do with the circus of monkeys I’m now playing ringmaster of. Will I ever figure it out? Logic tells me to get ready for a lifetime of questioning my own parenting tactics.
While all these fun changes have taken place, I was able to pare down on our belongings with our move. And since then, have found even more stuff that we didn’t need.
I’m proud to say that I’ve reached a pretty comfortable place in our minimalism journey. We probably still have lots of things that we don’t need, but I am no longer feeling so overwhelmed by how much stuff we have.
I think that’s really the key with minimizing clutter in your life. You do it until you reach that point where you feel the difference and feel like whatever anxiety or stress that was being caused by the clutter is gone. Nobody can tell you how much you need to get rid of. You decide.
Maybe this is just my take on it, but I think minimalism is an empowering thing. It puts you back in control.
I highly encourage to make your minimalism journey your own. Don’t let anybody tell you how to do it. Not even me!
I’m here to share things that have worked for me. But maybe you need a different approach. And just like all things, I think what works is ever-changing. Things I was doing a year ago don’t work anymore.
Sometimes you gotta find a new groove, and that’s okay.
I promise my next update won’t be six months from now!
Hope your Thanksgiving was full of great fun, friends, family, and food!
On to the chaotic Holidays!!! Let’s talk next time about some ways to have a more relaxed, laid back Christmas! Sound good?
