It was July 2014 when I was standing in front of two wardrobes full of clothes which had to be organized. I was dreading it because I knew it would take me two days to put everything in order. I had so many things, and I felt suffocated. Little did I know that there were books about decluttering/minimalism (I still have not yet read one) and my surrounding was of no help. Pretty much all of my female friends are super materialistic and some next level hoarders. There isn’t much more to expect if you are born in a ‘first’ world country. You make money and spend it on irrelevant goods. No worries about anything, as long as you can get the latest designer bag.
I wanted to get out of that vicious circle. I could not imagine wasting my time cleaning anymore. So I started sorting out my clothes that were brand new. I donated all of them, sold my cds and my books as well. It felt really great to be released from it all. It usually takes me 3 hours to clean. I want to reduce the time to 1 hour. Time is precious,and I definitely want to spend time doing more meaningful things in life than just cleaning.
I have started simplifying things in every aspect of my life. Throughout the next couple of weeks I will explain more and go into details of these changes.
Til next time,
