30-Day Minimalism Challenge // Day 2: Meditate for 15 Minutes

I’m joining a day late but I still can do it in January, just it will take me to January 31.

ZEN AND PI

As I mentioned in my New Year’s resolution post, this month I will be doing a 30-day minimalism challenge to get a fresh start and practice mindfulness, solitude, and simplicity. Feel free to join in if you want, I posted an image with all the challenges for you at the bottom of this post for reference.

Minimalism and Zen go hand in hand. Minimalism is about not making life too cluttered, nor too busy. Minimalism is about not being wasteful. It’s about figuring out what true happiness is, not what advertising tells you it is. Anything that is unnecessary is wasteful, and in a world where the trash is piling up and none of us is any better for it, maybe it’s time to try a new way.

I’m starting with doing 30 days, just to give it a try. What I like, I’ll keep, what I don’t, I’ll toss.

Quote of the day

“If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn’t walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. You will find that you don’t need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.” —Miguel Ruiz

So long friends,

I forgot…

For the first time in a quarter of a century I forgot to buy myself a gift… I can’t believe it! You see I have a little tradition going – since me and my ex split up I’m buying myself a gift on his birthday. It really cheers me up and reminds me of  an excellent decision I have once made (I’m the one who said ‘good bye Charlie’). I was celebrating that faithfully for twenty four years and yesterday somehow I missed it.

So long my friends,

Evalina
