STUCK ON AUTOPILOT
I believe there are way too many people out there living on autopilot and doing what’s expected of them (school, careers, families, mortgages and more!) without actively deciding or even thinking about what they really want out of life.
And when this happens? There is no passion; life is lacklustre, hollow, and sometimes even hopeless.
Making things worse—without a clear sense of identity or purpose to fall back on—we try to fill the void by owning more stuff.
We’re becoming mindless consumers, buying stuff we don’t need or even want, for reasons we can’t even articulate.
Unfortunately, it’s not working. For too many of us, life gets bigger, but not better.
I know because I’ve been there too, living a life that looks good on the outside (courtesy of an overflowing closet) but feels empty on the inside.
I felt suffocated and trapped in my life.
THEN ONE DAY I DISCOVERED MINIMALISM
… and slowly everything began to change.
I started by decluttering my stuff, and I was surprised to find that the less I owned, the more hopeful and optimistic I felt. As I said goodbye to rarely worn cocktail dresses and never used serving trays, a seed of possibility started growing in my heart.
I began to wonder what my new future might look like—and it was then I realised that decluttering was only the beginning.
The questions I asked about my purchases and possessions grew into questions about my life and my purpose.
I started asking myself: What brings me joy? Why am I on this path? What needs letting go? Where do I want to go?
LIVING WITH INTENTION
I was learning that minimalism goes hand in hand with intentional living.
Gradually, I started reevaluating all my life choices, mindfully and with intention, and began making adjustments accordingly.
It wasn’t an overnight change, but I went from feeling trapped and stuck to thriving and loving my life—and I want this for you too!
I’m not a world leading expert or some sort of “guru” but I am an open heart, and—if you’ve read this far—I daresay a kindred spirit.
