Days of Limbo

Some days it's simply harder to notice or find progress. When you're constantly trying to move forward and grow, especially during times like these, it can become easy to get bummed or sidetracked. I feel these days of limbo quite often, especially since we will be moving soon. Sure it's easy to declutter and go through things when moving, but sometimes it feels as if your'e simply "waiting" for it all to be over, "waiting" for the right time when you can finally "progress".

Times like these help me remember to take a step back and realize that I need to live in the moment and not constantly wait for things to settle down because odds are they won't ever be just right and you will slow your momentum.

It's also never a bad idea to just relax and take your time. You don't always need progress, but try to be happy with where you are, wherever you are. Focus on the little positives of each day, as hidden as they may be. That's the only true way to get through these days of limbo.

Starting my minimalism journey

This year, at the cold and snow-filled start of 2017, I am beginning on my journey of minimalism. No, this isn't some new religion or fad. This is simply an outlook change. I am currently in the process of moving so I cannot show pictures of before and after yet, however I have been getting rid of, selling, or donating anything that we do not need. This has been challenging at first, due to the fact that it's simply a struggle to sell some things or throw things away that you have attachment to. These attachments need to be with people, not items, not plastic. I want to remove as much uneeded "stuff" as I can to allow myself more clarify, time, and ability to spend my "attachments" on those I love easier.
