My Minimalism

My minimalism journey began in the midst of a ‘quarter-life crisis’- stuck in a career I wasn’t passionate about, living in a city that wasn’t ‘me’ and dating a guy that lacked my core values.  I wasn’t living the American dream and making 6 figures like some self-proclaimed Minimalists, but I had a decent paying career as a foodservice Registered Dietitian.

And I was a dreamer…without a plan other than to make myself happy and live a purposeful life.  So I took a risk and quit my job, traveled across Europe, broke up with my boyfriend and moved to a new city.  Since then I’ve been extremely blessed to say the least and credit’s due to having faith and taking a leap. I’ll save the mushy details for a later date.

After decluttering my life of that which no longer served me-I was free to focus on my passions.  That my friends… is Minimalism.  You don’t have to earn a 6 figure salary to be happy and live a purposeful life (if so-I’d never make it).

    I love how you left everything and started over. I know that can’t be easy, but you’re living life for you now which is hard for a lot of women to do.

    You have courage my friend.
