Today was a rough day. I had slept poorly, tossing and turning in the night with stomach cramps. I had a rough day at work, butting head with the boss and not agreeing on day-to-day operations of the business and chastised for things I did not do. So when I finished late today, all I wanted to do was watch a movie and go to bed. I was done. Buggered.
In fact, I was 20-minutes into Moana on Netflix when I forced myself to get up out of bed and write today’s Minimalism post. I’m brain dead and droopy eyed but still, I am writing. Pure determination pushing me through. Plus, I know I would be kicking myself in the morning if I didn’t write it.
Even though I would rather be doing just about anything else, my unwavering conviction has shed a new light on Minimalism. I’ve just discovered how incremented living a simple, minimal yet, meaningful life is in my values. If it wasn’t so important to me and the type of lifestyle I want to lead, I would still be snuggled up under my blanket happy as a bug in a rug!
Minimalism although satisfying and freeing is not always going to be easy and clear cut. There will be times I want to quit, times I want to forget it and purchase something frivolous or hold on to something old out of sentamint instead of practicality. But, with every stumble and struggle, I’ll learn more and get better at Minimalism – just one mistake at a time.
