What brings you joy?

 

I have been doing a lot of work the past 6 weeks. Letting go of stuff. If you follow me on social media you know I have been involved with a minimalist challenge. The first month it was a task a day like clean  out your junk drawer. This month it is to donate, recycle or trash each day of the month. June 1 is one item. June 30 is 30 items. It feels really wonderful to have clean emptied closets. Not completely emptied. I held on to a few things that “spark joy”

It looks like a road trip in 1975! It is actually a trip to Goodwill! Donate, Donate, Donate!

The process has brought clarity.  What is important? What brings me happiness and a coziness to my life?

There certainly has been a shift for me.

  • I  have an easy cleaning schedule.
  • A clean house
  • A clean car
  • A clean tool shed!
  • A clean desk.
  • An organized Junk drawer
  • I have embraced a lighter simple diet with lots of fruit and vegetables.
  • I feel calmer.
  • I feel good about my closet and my minimalist wardrobe. Fitness is my Fashion Statement!
  • I love open spaces.
  • I have a heightened awareness around gift giving. I love functional simple gifts.
  • Less is more…buy what you need.
  • Bonus Round! I have released 4 pounds this month that have been hanging on!!

An added joy is to go outside, pick basil and kale from my cute little manageable garden.

This morning I made a kale, basil and lime smoothie. I added cauliflower to thicken it up. I use a whey protein powder from happy grass fed cows.

A great way to start my day!

What brings you joy and happiness? Are you holding on to stuff that doesn’t serve you? I would love to hear from you!

Love, Mary
