Welcome to Minimalings. Nice to meet you. If you're new here, welcome! If you're returning, welcome back!
Life is complex. We are always on the go. Countless distractions, constant comparisons and too much stuff can make us lose focus on whats important. Minimalism is a bespoke lifestyle with the intention of becoming more intentional. Its the ability to curate elements of your life, removing the excess that doesnt add value to make room to unlock your own personal potential.
Who knew getting rid of some of your crap could be so enlightening!
Right now, I am a minimalist, life coach, speaker and career mentor but it didnt used to be that way. Quite content drifting through life in the comfort zone, I was collecting stuff, not exactly the stuff I wanted to collect but stuff none the less. I had a whole bunch of aspirations but managed to build a prison around them with a stack of unconscious decisions made down the years. My collection included debt, too many clothes, negative self fulfilling prophecies, assumptions, comparisons, unused 'just in case' items and a fixed mindset that kept me at just the right level of safe. I lived month to month but I wasnt really living at all.
Part of the journey to climb my way out of the self made ceiling was learning how to let go. By letting go of the stuff I had accumulated over the years, I had started to create a new path to make room to do the things I really wanted to do. One of those things was travel, so in order to do that, I had to hit the reset button on my life. Removing the physical stuff around my environment that didnt add value and making space in my mind to curate that trip with my partner. As the stuff was carefully extracted, it was replaced by experiences and with those experiences came a level of growth and realisation that I could achieve so much more and live quite happily with less.
I now layer a bespoke minimalist lifestyle across all areas of my life from the home, to career to hobbies, relationships and decisions. I also gain great value in supporting others through their own journey and sharing my experiences of the benefits of minimalism, hence why minimalings was born. I'm hoping this platform offers some value to you and the 'stuff' here resonates and inspires.
