I’m a few days out from one of the biggest decisions I have ever made in my life.
I sold all of my furniture.
I donated 90% of my shoes and clothing.
I closed my memberships at my local yoga studio and gym.
I sold my jeep.
I said “see ya later” to my wonderful friends and loving family.
I cancelled my cable, internet & phone bill.
I moved out of my house…the place that has kept me safe for many years now.
I have no keys on my key chain for the first time in my life. I have no home for the first time in my life.
I have purged the things that no longer serve me because I am not my things. All the stuff many of us surround ourselves with is merely a distraction and we are filling a void. The journey from having everything to having nothing has been an emotional roller coaster, but I’ve stepped off the ride a wiser person, equipped with a knowledge and understanding of material possessions that I definitely did not have before.
I know I sound crazy and you might be wondering why I got rid of everything I own? Well, the answer is simple. To be free. To become wild again.
Its amazing how attached we become to things we do not need. It’s a challenge of minimalism. Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. I want to be more with less. The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Once I let it go, I experienced a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.
I trust the universe to guide me in the right direction…because, you see, the universe always has your back.
So, I’m following my heart, taking a huge risk and heading to Central America because we weren’t born to just pay bills and die. See you later USA. Its been real.
Much love and good vibes,
