With Christmas eve upon us and the anxiety of last minute baking and gifting setting in. I thought what better time then now to work on my minimalist lifestyle. I am so lucky that I am constantly surrounded by “things” but the clutter gets overwhelming at times. I find clearing out clutter has allowed me to be more carefree and relaxed. My home is slowly becoming one that I dream of and my husband has stepped up too and helped me with this transition.
I found that the best way to stay true to my minimalist lifestyle during the Holidays is to simply let things go. There are so many thoughts going through my mind that I often forget to truly enjoy the meaning of Christmas. I have been blessed with the most fun loving family around. I look forward to seeing each and everyone of them every year. So this is a promise to myself to let things go and to enjoy the moments that I get with them. To remember that minimalism isn’t just about clearing out items, but also about clearing your mind.
I am excited to have a clearer mindset as Christmas approaches.I have already started to let things go and just simply be me. Be in the moment and with those I love. Wishing all of you a carefree and magical Holiday!
How do you plan to take on minimalism in this new year?
Austin is 3 and trick or treating is his world right now. He talks about it day and night. I finally took him to get a costume yesterday. We contemplated making our own and searched for the perfect outfit. He had his heart set on being Marshall from Paw Patrol so we finally “bit the bullet” and bought him a REAL costume. He even picked out a matching one for his sweet sister.
Year 1, we were cops and robbers. Austin was the cop of course. Year 2, Austin was Buzz Lightyear and I was Woody. Year 3, We were all Ninja Turtles! Now that I have Big and Little Marshall, I am trying to scramble and figure out what Eric and I will be. I LOVE to dress us all up, even if we just sit at home and pass out candy.
With Halloween on Tuesday this year, we had the weekend to dip our toes into some Halloween fun. I pulled my favorites from some sites I adore and had fun trying them out!
I’d love to know your favorite last minute Halloween ideas! Post in the comments below.
