I Need a Vacation

I’ve been having a really rough time this winter. It’s almost over, and I’m really looking forward to spring. I’ve started the decluttering process. I’m going to need a professional to come in and organize though. Although, if I get rid of enough stuff, I can probably keep everything in place. One complicating factor is that I’m not the only person to take into account. I’ve just been letting my stuff pile up wherever I happen to lay it down. I looked around one day and realized that the mess in our house was entirely mine. I hadn’t been paying attention. It’s easier for me to get rid of things than to keep things put away. I’m going to really try to get into the whole minimalism mindset. It’s not enough to throw away things I’m not using or just don’t love. I need to be mindful about where my money goes and be sure that I’m not bringing new things home if I’m going to have to throw them away in a month or six. I’m also thinking of creating a sort of personal uniform. I’ve read that’s something successful people do. It frees up decision making space in our brains. For me, it frees up the anxiety related to making that decision. I’m going through a dress phase. For a uniform for me right now, I think T-shirt dresses are a good fit. I can get a belt and a jacket to dress them up and warm them up depending on the season. I can wear them alone if I’m in a moo-moo mood and just want to bum around the house. I don’t have any dresses like that at the moment, but I did have one last year that I was quite comfortable in. They don’t have to be super expensive or last a super long time. They just have to be cute, versatile, and comfortable. Before I do any more shopping though, I have more stuff to get rid of. It’s kinda intimidating. The improvement I’ve already seen in my surroundings is encouraging though!
