I wish I could explain how inspired and excited I am feeling at this moment. I have spent most of my afternoon exploring apartmenttherapy.com and thekitchn.com. And, I think I am finely seeing the direction my life is going to take. I am finally experiencing what could only be considered passion. I am hopeful and optimistic. I feel like God’s will is being revealed.
If you read one of my earlier posts, then you know my goal is to live a year in action. And, you also know that I have struggled with how that would look. The truth is that I so wanted this blog to be pretty and fun. But, I am now realizing that Every Day Eve is truly about growth. And, I don’t just mean my growth. Every Day Eve is about our growth.
Like I stated, I think I have discovered my passion. Or, at least one of my passions. And, it is living a minimalist life. For years I have loved all things budgeting and debt freedom related. Naturally, I am a minimalist at heart. I enjoy purging. And, it is difficult for me to live in a cluttered environment for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, I have not always been intentional and purposeful with my day-to-day actions.
I am super giddy about applying minimal living principles and sharing my victories and lessons learned with each of you. I am thrilled that Every Day Eve will provide me the opportunity to document my journey of intentional living.
In my last post I shared five goals regarding living a healthy lifestyle. And, since then I have decided that I was approaching healthy living the wrong way. I was doing it based on others’ success stories, and not according to who I am as a person.
I will approach becoming my best self by doing the things I love and the things I think I might enjoy. I will embrace minimal living. I will embrace frugal living. And, I will share this journey with you all.
So my new goals are:
- Continue to research and learn more about minimal and frugal living
- Apply the principles I learn
- Share my journey with others
- Reap the benefits
Now this is something I can definitely do. Please feel free to share any advice you might have based on your experiences.
