The last time I blogged was 2016. Where did the time go? It actually went towards Instagram if we're talking about social media hours. Haha
All is well here. I'm less than a month away from turning 32 years old, what?
I hope everyone is out there living your best lives, I know you are. It's been nearly 10 years ago that I started writing on blog spot. But let's not focus on the past. I'm all about what's ahead nowadays. The internet seems to move so fast with Instagram but I'm still young enough to keep up! It definitely can suck you in and waste time, but if you enjoy wasting that time, then it's not time wasted. :P
I feel my self proclaimed QUOTES TIMES has been good for my mind and soul to relax and read quotes that are uplifting. I enjoy the funny ones too! My favorite topic has got to be decluttering.
I have 1/4th of that book left to finish and I think I might just reread the book and pass it on to someone else to share the knowledge. I'm not much of a book collector even thought Belle's library in Beauty and the Beast is quite epic.
I've really started to focus on the things I do have and own. I tell myself I don't need another handbag because I barely use the ones I already do have. I think my priorities have shifted. Been there done that. I don't need material things or luxury goods to feel fulfilled. I don't feel its as important to me to impress others the way I used to feel for some odd reason. I guess it's all part of growing up.
All that clutter used to be money, for sure. There's no point dwelling on it or feeling bad, do something about it. Facebook Marketplace has become my best friend. I love selling things for cash. It adds up! It's amazing how I can list things for $5-20 dollars and get back $100 in a day of the stuff I just have around my house. It does require time and effort, but I enjoy and get a high from reselling my things that still have a lot of life!
I seek simplicity now. I want space for my mind to be refreshed everyday I wake up.
I read another great quote just last night. "He who buys what he doesn't need steals from himself." Where was this when I needed to hear it the most? It's such a deep saying. I feel it, I relate, it makes so much sense!
Don't steal from yourself. It's simple, right? Haha, I hope you are all doing well.Find me on Instagram at DSKJewelry
I post stories daily because it sure does spark joy! :)
Signing off! -Steph
