It’s no secret that I love & believe in simplicity SO much, but as with all things, it’s not always rainbows and butterflies! Sometimes its painful to prune your belongings, your business, even sometimes relationships & social commitments.
Simplicity can sometimes suck because it occasionally makes you walk through the fire! And that’s not always a fun feeling is it?
But it’s really important when you know you’re being called to simplify something in your life to remember your WHY (as if I don’t already harp on this enough guys! ha! #sorrynotsorry!) and remember to take a moment to just get that vision in your head again, especially during the toughest parts. Visualize what it’ll feel and look like to be done, or at least through the fire.
Maybe it’s your inbox you’re tackling (I wouldn’t know this from experience or anything…) maybe you just feel like closing the tab, or deleting everything all together. But instead, take a moment to visualize how it’ll feel to finally have it cleaned out, organized with labels and filters, and have a bunch of unnecessary things evicted (or commonly known as “unsubscribing” ha!) from your inbox…you’ll be able to open it every day without a HUGE wave of overwhelm hitting you. Maybe you’ll finally be free from some comparison issues since you’re not opening up 81 and a half newsletters from other coaches/bloggers/designers/whatever to make you fall pray to the negativity monsters! (But seriously love, unsubscribe, unfollow and clean up your digi-space to avoid comparison so much! It’ll do a WORLD of good for your heart & productivity!)
It could be a million other things you’re attempting to simplify, but the point is still the same throughout the many different hats we wear! It took me a LONG time to fully simplify my closet to the point that I had a very small, put together capsule wardrobe (yes the same goal I’ve been blogging for quite a long time!) and now I LOVE it! I have a “uniform” of sorts for the different types of days I have. It’s so freeing and awesome to have my closet be tiny & cute!
- Remember your why(s) – alwaysssss, or I’ll keep harping on this in every video & blog post! 😉
- Visualize what it’ll feel like when you’re through the fire!
- Bonus: Remember that the fire eventually does end, you’ll get out of the woods and it’ll get easier/better! It’s so worth it to follow your calling and live a purposeful life!
Getting passed distractions and moving forward with brave purpose is SO essential, SOOO essential to following your calling and living the purposeful life of your dreams! Simplifying is a must to that whole process. You can do it darling…you really can! Simplifying your business, or your closet, your entire house, none of that seems like a big deal until you’re in the middle of it, and then sometimes it hits you! Don’t back down darling, those dreams and visions are WORTH it!
with love & blessings
