For me, it all starts now. I remember talking to my sister about a year ago and she and I were both like, “Yeah, right…”
We were both right at the time. For a year, I talked a good game while still doing nothing and buying shit I didn’t need, simply because I could and it made me feel good at the time.
Materialism and consumerism, for me, runs deeper than just “wanting things”. It is a direct result of growing up not having the things I needed (not wanted but needed), so when I was able to actually buy things for myself, it became my drug of choice. Get a dollar, spend ninety-five cents.
Now, I’m not saying that I’m going to get rid of all my belongings to only own a hundred things because, let’s keep it real: That jut ain’t me! This blog is not about purging my life of all of my possessions, but it will be about ridding myself of the things that no longer serve a purpose in my life and not acquiring new things to soothe some emotional ailment.
With every post, you can expect honesty and transparency. I am so serious about this, and this blog, more than anything, will serve to hold myself accountable. Join me, will you?
