Getting Back To MEnimalism :)

It has been about 4 to 5 years of practicing minimalism, and it’s gotten a lot easier a long the ways. However, we all know that minimalism isn’t just about the materials, it is also about the non-materials that can bunch up into our lives and our minds. The people, our type of work, hobbies, foods, etc. I’ve been trying to get back to the basics of eliminating anything that no longer serves me. And also eliminating myself from anything that no longer needs my services . I remember having this feeling back in 2010/2011 and ended up getting rid of my FaceBook, this time going on for 7 years. I’ve decided to leave my social platforms for work/creativity. I feel the further I get away from it, the better I feel. The same feeling of not getting involved in other “toxic entertainments” like the news, or other TV programs. I am ready for a deep cleanse, and want to encourage everyone as well. It is time to get back to the basics, and appreciate the simplicity of our own lives. We need to make more time for what really matters with ourselves. Now, this is a personal challenge, and not to say everyone has to do it, but to at lease try it and give yourself a break from time to time. I believe in the importance of adding value to your life, and sometimes that means stepping back, so you can go forward.

So what is there to do with your time?

  • CREATE

Spark up your interest/creation by doing something fun.

  • APPRECIATE

What is going on in your life right now? Can you make changes to it? What can you do to show your appreciation?

  • Do Something New

What is something you’ve always wanted to try?

  • Relax and Enjoy

You don’t have to always find something to do. Sometimes doing nothing is all the enjoyment you need at that time.

Take little steps for bigger rewards. And know that it’s okay to be missing out sometimes, it is not the end of the world :).

Don’t You Ever Complain To Me,

again. Unless you plan to do something about it!

Nothing is more upsetting than listening to someone complain, but nothing’s changed…

They complain when something is wrong, hell they complain when something is right.

Is anyone ever satisfied?

And here I am complaining about others complaints. But instead, I prefer to use my restraints. 

I find it more powerful to take in what we can’t control, and turn into what we can. Ourselves….. It’s not the end of the world, but it is a shift that will change our world…

No one is ever ready, so get ready.

You complain about the same thing, nothing’s changed, and even you remained the same. You’re just as bad as the people you claim. Never feeling ashamed, but quick to have your hand out when there’s something else to obtain. What a shame. Things stay the same. The cycle recycle’s into another complaint. Nothing’s changed. Just another time, another day, but do you stay the same? 

The only thing we can change is ourselves, so spare me with the gossip or tell-all , about an everlasting downfall. I hear you, and I feel for you, but where is this all going? Will there be a solution to the issue that’s crawling?

Be mindful of what is happening, and make your life happen the way you want. 

Remember life is constantly changing, whether if we like it or not. But we can all try to do better ourselves, so we can live as happily as we want.

The choice is yours, so take your power back by doing something about it.

Choose greater, and complain less.

Yes the world is a mess, but that doesn’t mean you have to be 🙂

You Are Your Worst Enemy…

Why must we do this to ourselves? We build ourselves up just enough to be put back on the shelf. All that hard work, and what for? To be placed on the shelf???

We’re our own worst enemy. At times, it feels as  if we’re not. But really we are. Lets be honest with ourselves. No matter what anyone else says, or how they see us. It is not our responsibility to change that. Don’t play the game, you know you don’t deserve that, especially when we’re so hard on ourselves already.

The power lies within us. What we believe to what we want to achieve……

We’re our own worst enemy, but oftentimes we try to switch that focus to another. What good is it to play that game? None of that matters, none of it is the same. Instead, it is a distraction to help take the focus from ourselves….Don’t fall for it though 😛

Take ownership! Being your own enemy can be as beneficial as being your own friend. You have to really question yourself and not be afraid to go deep.

Reflect on yourself, the people you surround yourself with, the types of situations and resolutions that have inspired you, or moved you. Ask yourself (enemy self) why and how things can change, for the better.

Any enemy can turn into a friend. Sometimes it takes a little more effort to truly get to the resolution and to apprehend it.

Don’t be afraid to discover the enemy inside you, somewhere in there is another you, no longer an enemy, but a better friend.

Let’s no longer fight with the enemy, and let’s become friends with her instead 🙂
