Minimalism has quite a few misconceptions about living a bare, deprived life; but I promise you you will never feel more fulfilled, focus and fueled then when you see the ripple effect onto how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally after you begin the journey. The effect is truly profound in that it pours over into every area of your life.
We all have our own unique goals we would like to see ourselves achieve, yet we wrestle with the idea that there simply is not enough time in a day to tackle all that is expected of us, let alone dive into those deep-seated passions that have lied dormant. We can’t physically fit it all into ONE day; however, we can assess and organize our time so that we are better utilizing the time that we have. If you are up for it, I have a challenge for you that will lead you to a more motivated, productive and fulfilling lifestyle.
Too often our thoughts and spoken words are spent grumbling about what we have. We often can’t see our answered prayers when we begin our day because we wear a macro lens and are focused on the things we wish we could change about ourselves or our lives. We see the endless cycle of housework and assignments as a curse, while others see them as a blessing. It is time for us to take care of our blessings and here’s how.
For anyone who has ever felt lost, unsure of which turn to take when coming to a fork in the road, this prayer is for you.
A true life account for the many years I spent living behind a mask. On the outside, I was the outgoing, free-spirited girl you could always go to if you needed a good laugh or a shoulder to cry on. But inside I was struggling with severe depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety riddled with panic attacks, and a tendency to self-harm.
Our minds are exactly like a fertile garden. We can water seeds of negativity that grow like weeds and starve all around it, or conserve our energy to nourish and bear the fruit of joy, peace, motivation, patience. This post addresses ways to consciously alter our thinking to benefit our overall mental and physical wellbeing.
