If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?
If I were to spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “ME”, I would like to be what people call a minimalist. I’m choosing to live a better version of myself instead of living as someone else. I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions but this year being a minimalist is on top of my list. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post a few weeks ago, I want to live a less cluttered life, less possessions and improve my quality of life. I know it’s going to be a lot of work and I have to make a conscious effort in making my goal a reality but I believe that anything can be achieved with patience, perseverance and dedication. As a matter of fact, I took the first step in making my minimalism goal a reality by spending New Year’s eve cleaning out my closet 😀 and I ended up with 5 tall bags of clothes. There were 4 bags of old clothes and 1 bag of clothes to give away. I also have two 18 gallon plastic bins full of dresses (casual and cocktail) , coats and suits that I will be selling. The dresses and coats in those bins were either used only once or washed but never worn that’s why I want to sell it. A portion of the profits will go for the annual project that my better half and I started over Christmas and the rest for our dream vacation 😉 😀 .
So that’s who I want to be starting this year …..a MINIMALIST. 😀
