I'm going semi-naked

Ok, well not naked as such. But I am trying the go a little more - I guess you'd say - minimalist. I don't want to go full-on 'throw everything away and live in the same 3 t-shirts' minimalist, but I do want to be a lot more cautious and mindful in what I buy and what I own. I won't be getting rid of things I love, like my books or my craft supplies, but I think I'm ready to get rid of those clothes that I 'might fit back into one day' or the DVD's that I'll 'get around to watching soon'.

I think there is an important line between complete minimalist and having enough. It's about being happy with what you have. I want to be happy with what I have, and not feel that I need anything else. To say that me and my partner are only in our 20s, we have a shameful amount of things and I have to say that it does clutter your life. I want to be able to have free space in my home, I want to be able to know what I have and where it is when I need it. I don't want to have to re-arrange my desk or dresser every time I want to use it.

There are a lot of things at the moment that I'm not prepared to get rid of, and that's ok too. I don't want to be hasty and end up getting rid of something I regret, but I know in time I will get rid of more and prioritise what I need. I'm a long way off being a minimalist and if I'm honest, I don't think I would want to be. I just want to be happy, and if that means having a balance of stuff and empty space, I'm willing to take myself on this journey.

Are you a minimalist? What are your thoughts on minimalism? Let me know!

Until next time...
