Minimalist Game Day 22

I have gotten rid of 213 items this month. I feel proud about myself, not to mention lighter. I also got rid of 192 items last year. Between these two declutter missions, I have eliminated 405 items from my life. It feels amazing. I’m sure there may be more things that I can get rid of, but as of right now, I feel content with the things I have.

For those that wish to partake… I would love to see you document your journey. Tag me in your post(s)!

The rules are simple, you get rid of things from your life, either by selling them, throwing them away, or donating them. On the first day, you remove one item, and then on the second day, you remove two items, you keep on playing until it’s the end of the month, or whenever you run out of things to remove from your life. It is okay if you can’t make it until the end of the month. Personally, I would rather see items get donated, or sold to someone else. If you must throw something away, I hope it’s because it isn’t fixable. Even if you have removed three items from your life, you should still be proud of that, because it is three more things you removed before the challenge. But if you are able to complete this challenge, you would have gotten rid of almost 500 items! That’s a lot of stuff.

If you are participating, I would love to know what you are parting with, feel free to let me know in the comments. This is such a fun way to welcome Spring cleaning.

This is from Friday March 12th.

I was still sorting through my jewelry box, like I said, I have too many pieces of jewelry. I am really glad that I departed with.

I am starting to feel lighter without having all of these things weighing me down. Especially items that didn’t make me happy anymore.

Empower

I am a bit behind, but I hope everyone had a great week, so far. Here is a weekly quote to close out the week.

We have the power to use our words to heal or hurt people, the choice is ours. Why don’t we do something inspiring to help others? We might not even know the magnitude of our words or actions have on other people. So in the world that can seem like an awful place, we should learn to love and appreciate others.

And more importantly we should also learn to empower ourselves. We need to learn that it is okay to let go of things, and sometimes people that no longer serve us, or add any joy in our lives. It’s okay to leave things behind. Not everything was meant to stay with us forever. The sooner we learn this, the more peaceful our lives will be.

Trees – Weekly Quote

Since today is the last day of summer, I found a quote that was perfect for the night before Autumn equinox.

In case you can’t read it, it says, “Be like a tree, let the dead leaves drop.” -Rumi

I love this quote because it’s a reminder that you can be strong enough to let things go, whether it be a toxic friend, family member, psychical items, digital items, etc. Learn to be free. And I like this quote because it reminds me of Autumn, it’s my favourite season.

Start Again

Feel free to start again. Feel free to let go. It is okay to let the broken foundation finally collapse in order for you to build again. You have to let go of the broken pieces in order to grow and start something new.

Letting go of the broken pieces and looking back at everything that once was before it shattered may be difficult but you are a strong person. Everything that has happened to you has for a reason. You may not be able to see it now but you will – give it time.

Rebuilding your future is the best thing you can do for yourself. Let go of everything that weighs you down.

Today, I will let go of the broken pieces of my life and welcome the new with arms open wide.

Letting Go

As another year’s end is upon us we then realize that a few changes needs to made in our lives. Sometimes that may result in us to feel trapped in a relationship. The ones that already reached the end but we are in denial about it because we think it’s best to postpone the official end that way we don’t have to grieve over the lost of a relationship.

We need to trust our journey and believe that whatever may happen to us it is for the best. It will help us grow. We should let go of all of the relationships that are no longer working for us. We must recognize our strength to end a relationship. We need to know that we are loved and that we will find people who will fall in love with our quirks and admire our flaws.

Today I will allow myself to grieve and I will accept that the path that I am on is planned for me.

Clear Thinking

Today I read my daily reading about clear thinking and it reminded of me to release unwanted thoughts and thoughts that aren’t solely on the present. I release thoughts from my past and the future. Mind you it is okay to think about these but all of your thoughts can’t live there. You should focus on the present. Bring your mind back to the present.

You shouldn’t let your past or future blur your thinking of the present.

Today I will release my thoughts of the past and future and embrace in the now.

Keep Living

“So darling, for now don’t be so hard on yourself. Know that you can laugh even in the midst of your miseries and you can cry heaps in the centre of your joys. You don’t need logical reasons to feel human so let your heart burst as and how it wants. Dance when you hear a good song playing from a car driving past and drink lots of water. It’s like giving our bodies a taste of home. Say I love you more than you think it in your mind and kiss, hug, hold hands, touch this experience of life in every way you can. Life can be difficult. Slowing down to see the small things again and doing something you love can help loads and sing as much as you can and listen to music. Let music surround you each day and remind you of life’s beauty. You’re doing so well. You really are. And even when you feel scared, do that thing anyway. We might always have fear, but we won’t always have these moments. Life is precious. Keep living.”

-S.C. Lourie

Today, I will live my life even if I have fear on my mind. I will keep on going to achieve all that I want to be.
