Simplify

For a long time I have bought books on simplifying life and done many things to simplify life, but there has always been this feeling of clutter in my mind and body that I need to take care of in order to move on and improve my life. My life is much more simplified then it was before, but now I am going to go under construction and really clean out the clutter. My post before this one is a little reference guide I am using to rinse things out. Its going to be few weeks worth of journey/process, but little steps at a time will get me there. 4-5 most important things in life (these are not in a ranked order) 1.Overall (Maslow): healthy, body, cleaning, organizing, food, sleep, exercise, sanity 2.Career: work [vss] 3.Education: school [aau mfa] 4.Family and friends 5.Goals and Hobbies [short term and long term: CCNA certificate, book publishing, dance commitment, painting) Few to do’s 1.Clean out wardrobe 2.Clean out jewelry/make up etc. 3.Clean out papers/electronics etc. 4.Clean out, dele…

Simplicity

It means getting rid of many of the things you do so you can spend time with people you love and do the things you love. It means getting rid of the clutter so you are left with only that which gives you value. However, getting to simplicity isn’t always a simple process.

The Long List One important note: this list will be criticized for being too complicated, especially as it provides a bunch of links. Don’t stress out about all of that. Just choose one at a time, and focus on that. When you’re d…

Strong Woman vs. Woman of Strenght (Theme of my life)

A strong woman works out everyday to keep her body in shape…
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything…
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.
A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her…
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
But a woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings, and capitalizes on them
A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
But a woman of strength wears grace.
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.
