Full Moon Ritual

A full moon is such a special time that should be taken advantage of! As new moons are meant to let go and begin anew, a full moon is when your truest self surfaces and you have the great possibility to reap the benefits of the goals you’ve met within this moon cycle. A full moon is nothing to be ignored and seen as just the sky being a little brighter that night, so here are some ways that I use a full moon to my benefit and how I will be using it this weekend.   It is spiritually…

The Importance Of Taking A Day Off For Yourself

For the past few months I have been going to war with myself as to whether or not I could afford to take a day off during the week, not to do anything particular, but just to have a day to myself. The weekends always tend to fill up with checklists and when your in a relationship, those days are spent tackling tasks together and sometimes it is nice to have a day all to yourself. Well, I finally took that day off and it was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a long time. I…

Smaller Spaces, Bigger Love

I guess you could say that living in a small home can really challenge a relationship. There’s not much room for any personal space or personal time, nor much space to hide your living habits. To some people, these circumstances can seem intimidating, we considered it a new opportunity for growth. At first I thought such a little space of living wouldn’t require too much cleaning, but three animals along with all our belongings has required us to come together with creative ways to keep things tidy. Every obstacle is a new challenge for us to solve together, how to…

Limiting Our Things For Limited Spaces

Anyone who walked into our home would definitely think that we didn’t have many things. Within the last few months we have been selling so much and I felt quite minimalistic. But when we officially started packing all of our things, we made the decision to rent a U Haul because we weren’t going to have enough space, I realized I really had a ways to go before considering myself a true minimalist. We thought this U Haul would have plenty of space, but after an hour or so of loading, we began noticing that we would need to fill…

A Letter To My Fellow Travelers

Dear Fellow Travelers, The house is nearly empty, we’re selling things one by one, packing a box a day. The pile of things we are ridding from our lives is nearly gone and with each thing that sells, I feel fuller. I remember thinking that I couldn’t wait, that leaving was too far away and that it would take forever. But once I stopped thinking about it so much, I stopped and realized that this month is our last month of rent. Our month notice needed to be in, we needed to sell more, put in our two weeks very…

My Strides Towards Minimalism

Recently, I watched another documentary (I’m a big fan of documentaries) called Minimalism. I would say that it was this documentary that changed my outlook on life, but it hit me like a load of useless junk laying around in my house! I just needed that extra push, I needed that extra knowledge. I have never been a hoarder, collector or shopaholic; but I did buy things for the simple reason that it is cute, I guess you can call that being a woman, or simply being a human in modern society. The very next day, my boyfriend and I…
