Hi all! Just checking in here because I know it’s been ages since I sat down and wrote a post and wanted to let you all know I’m still around; I still think about this blog and getting round to posting again. Sharing the benefits of minimalism is dear to me but at the moment life is pretty full with college, work, parenting, and learning to drive.
I’m not going to lie – I’m exhausted, and a few months ago I got Covid which I’m still struggling with post-viral fatigue. It means I’ve had to make some (hopefully temporary) adjustments in my life, and I’ve had to prioritise the most important things to me.
I often find myself wishing I had done half of what I’m doing now much earlier in life before the responsibilities of running a house and taking care of two young children (one of whom is special needs) took hold. But I was a different person back then. Lost and clinging onto every physical possession like a life raft.
Through minimalism I go to where I am today, which it is still so important to me to share the life-giving, time-gifting, benefits of simple living.
I’m not perfect. Sometimes I forget to follow my own advice, or that of the many amazing authors, bloggers and Youtubers out there. But that’s okay because I’m always learning, and I intend to keep sharing that learning with all of you, my followers, who I’m very grateful for.
In the meantime, I’m going to keep focused on the present and what I need to do today to keep moving forwards.
