To pick just one thing

I’ve been diggin deeper into the world of Minimalism thanks to The Minimalists‘ website and the minimalistmakeover Youtube channel. In some way it all relates with what my mother has been doing during our whole lives. She has the hability to give away, sell or toss a great amount of things that she considered we just DON’T NEEDED, which has always proove to be effective when we needed to save more time, space and money. All of this has a close relation with finding your purpose in life or living through your passions, because it gives you the chance to FOCUS AND TAKE ACTION into the most important areas of your life.

So… as I mentioned in my previous posts, I have problems as for deciding in what investing my time and energy. I’m totally aware that I need to pick something and DO IT, just as Joshua says to me on that comment [original post], but I’ve been postponing this decision for years.

The time has come to make that decision.

Of course I feel afraid, because, I have that feeling that if I drop away something I’ll be missing something else. I’m afraid I will regret it after any decision I make. I know I won’t be able to make that decision in one night, neither one week. Maybe in one month.

Let’s see what happens.


Creating my own space

These past few days I found two articles that relate with what I’ve been doing lately… Create more, consume less and Maintaining your individuality in a relationship.

To feel good with myself I need to create in my own space. Though I’m not in a romantic relationship right now, sharing the house with my mother, my son, my cats and my dogs gives the idea of personal space not a huge chance.

Actually it took six months since we moved in here to realize how we wanted to use the areas and the space. Sometimes you have to live before you are sure how you want to live.


So I finally took on for myself the two small rooms in the upper floor where I can have a space for all my things and my work. To have two separate rooms is good to keep away the cats when I don’t want them to damage [sit on, eat, scratch, puke on] something specific I’m working on . In one room I have my bed, clothes, some books and basically is the area to rest/sleep and the main area for my cats. The other room is where I have my books, paintings, music and where I basically read, write, paint, play music, etc. If I have all my things in one place which I can call mine, I can focus and concentrate better and also use the shared areas  feeling stress-free.
