Hey all! I know it’s been soooo long since I last wrote; 2017 hit and with it a huge amount of new things going on (think: church classes, new job, volunteer work, and more).
I have literally felt in the past couple weeks like I was trying to keep my sanity amidst all the pressure I was feeling to get things done.
(y’all don’t ever feel like that, do you…?) Continue reading
I LOVE finding a good, inspirational TEDxTalk!
These people have been there, done that, and often the there and that are something kind of unusual that not many people would think of doing!
There is always inspiration to be gained, though (you know I love inspiration!). Maybe you won’t live offline for a whole year, but is there a mindset you’ve been holding onto that maybe your life would be better off without?
Please, watch these 6 TEDxTalks. You won’t be sorry, and you’ll most likely have your eyes opened to new–and wonderful!–thoughts.
I could not resist; with Minimalism the new more is less, but when it comes to articles about minimalism, well,…..that’s a different story.
If you’re just looking to simplify and not even go all-out minimalist, this post is inspiring. Nobody enjoys a crowded lifestyle; maybe it’s time you did some simplifying!
This world is in some kind rat-race to get. Everyone wants to have more, they want to exceed everyone else with their possessions.
They want to have the best, the most valuable, the most of all, and often at the cost of not only money, but relationships, time, character, and everyone else around them.
Does this seem to make sense? I mean, there is a lot of faulty logic to this getting (and having).
Do you really know where stuff comes from, how it’s made, marketed, sold, and trashed?
This video (recommended by Joshua Becker) is an inside look at the consumerist age we live in.
The choices we make and the things we do have a MUCH bigger impact than most people would realize!
Here are the newest minimalism posts I’ve gained inspiration from (and yes, I am working through as much of my life as I possibly can for one still at home with 8 other people 🙂 )
7 Reasons We Buy Things We Don’t Need
We all get this feeling sometimes like we don’t really need to buy something, but somehow we justify it….these are the justifications we tell ourselves and the problems with them.
Decluttering and Minimalism go hand in hand. In order to be a minimalist, you have to weed out all the things in your life (possessions and mindsets and habits) that keep you feeling “cluttered”.
But that doesn’t mean you have to become minimalist just because you want to declutter. For many people decluttering is just something they do every now and again to keep themselves sane (although not to the extent that most minimalists do).
