To be 100% honest with everyone, I really did not want to accept this, but here it goes.
I’m hitting a wall with my decluttering process and staying simple life style. Don't get me wrong, I am not going back to what I was before - shopaholic / holder. But compared to what I have been doing after changed my lifestyle, I am totally stuck.
I was in really good vibe, and was quite proud of myself for doing it. But after Wedding, an event that (if you want it or not) will make you acquire a lot of extra stuff, somehow made my minimalism sense disappear. I thought I had enough minimalism muscle built up but it seems like it’s something that can go away if you suddenly live different lifestyle for a while.
I had a big bag of clothes that I was holding onto for donation. I was waiting to find the time to go to the nearest donation box. Not something that I am proud of, but I had it prolonged for few weeks now. And after wedding, when I finally found the location and some time to go to the donation box, I re-looked at the stuff I had put in the back, and... saw myself taking some out.
These 2 pieces of clothes were there in the box from when I decided I don't need them in my life, few weeks ago and I did not think about them until I had a chance to re-look at those. But again, with my weird pre-simple life mindset came back to me and was persuading myself that I will have a chance to wear them, WHILE I was already hanging them back up in my wardrobe.
How insane is this?
I am feeling stuck, and I understand this is something normal that everyone goes through.
I just have to go back to building that simple life muscle, and march forward so that I can live my life more fully and the way I intended.
So, to put myself back on the game, I am going to play one of famous minimalism game.
I will challenge myself to get rid of one thing a day and share them on the blog so that I keep myself more motivated.
Meanwhile, to kick off my new challenge, have successfully donated 2 piles of clothes that I don't wear (and not possible to sell) and thew away a lot of junks that I was holding on to.
Let the games begin!
