MINIMALISM | DAY ONE

My heart is so happy to be writing again today. As busy as life can get, the one thing that brings me back to feeling somewhat collected as an individual is, writing. Today I found myself flipping through Netflix as I just finished watching 10 seasons of Friends. (I LOVE that show.) I came across the Minimalism Documentary. I had heard of it previously and then completely forgot about it. I am so glad I stumbled upon it today. While some of the ideas portrayed are perhaps a tiny bit extreme, the overall essence, meaning and drive behind it is absolutely BRILLIANT.

This dynamic duo's blog has many helpful links to creating a more minimalistic lifestyle. The 21-Day Journey Into Minimalism in particular is my favorite. Combine my love for journaling + building a present/fulfilled lifestyle = a personal blueprint of a minimalist lifestyle. Yes, please.

I am drawn to the minimalistic life because I do not want to conform to the world when it comes to commercialized, money-crazed, possession-obsessed, top of the ladder of "success", technology-plugged lifestyles.

I am drawn to simplicity, genuine hearts for positively impacting the world, real face to face deep conversations, fresh air experiences, creative souls who crave heavenly things rather than earthly things.

Colossians 3:1-4 | Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, strive for the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Over a course of 21 days I will be blogging about my experiences with this journey.
NOTES | DAY ONE DECISIONS
Your only exercise today is simple: make your Must List. What are your musts? What must change? What has brought pain into your life? What will bring great pleasure? Take as much time as you need and write down all your musts.
I must…
