5/10/17 My Bliss

More doesn’t always mean better, sometimes less is more. Those are wise words that everybody most likely has heard at some time in their life. Probably you have heard it in the context of makeup, money, or clothing ((less skin showing)). This concept has become increasingly popular with natural look makeup trends and the #modestishottest movement. However, I am going to use that phrase in the context of stuff. Stuff is a very generic term, it essentially encompasses all worldly goods. When I enter my room I see a lot of bare space with sparse amounts of items on the tabletops and shelves. This isn’t because I hide things in drawers and closets or because I shove things under my bed. I just don’t have a lot of stuff and I am really proud of that. It has taken me a long time to declutter and realize that material possessions really weigh me down. I don’t want to be held back by items from my past and I don’t want my stuff to define my status or who I am as a person. I would rather spend my time making memories and experiencing life than accumulating possessions that will either run out, become obsolete, or will be left behind when I pass from this world. Realizing this has really helped me to grow as a person. I don’t like clutter or meaningless possessions. I am fine with not following the trends because trends always go out of style eventually. I am not rooted on this earth and I am not of this world. That being said, I do enjoy the possessions that I have but they do not sustain me. I hope that all of you find your bliss and I thank you for walking with me on my journey. xoxo -runninganorganizedlife
