Back to Basics

I’ve been feeling a little bit unmotivated by the blog recently. I was trying to analyze why.

Part of it is just losing momentum after blogging about a year. I think I’ve also resolved issues like debt and hating my job that motivated me to start blogging to begin with.

But I realized that I’ve also gotten away from the “core” of my blog – I haven’t been focusing as much on plain old minimalism lately.

I realized that I have been backsliding a bit recently. Somehow I’ve acquired a few more clothes than I need – again. I need to do a mini-purge and get back to the “one in, one out” rule. I also put car repair payments on my newly blank credit card a couple months ago and haven’t completely paid that off yet.

I also had planned to shred or scan a couple boxes of files and give away some furniture, but keep postponing it.

And I need to focus on simplifying and improving my diet and exercise, and get back in the habit of daily yoga and meditation. I let a busy schedule and my new promotion be an excuse to do some shopping and let things slip for awhile, but it’s time to recommit to the principles that have consistently improved my life and health.

So…..back on the wagon!
