It’s kind of a challenge being positive today as I’m nursing really bad stomach cramps due to my period. But it might not be that bad – I just don’t get cramps so maybe I’m not used to the feeling. 

Anyway, bad stuff aside, it was quite a weekend for me. Albeit having to spend a couple of days by myself almost the entire day everyday, I got to take advantage of those days by spending time with my guy.

2017. How do I even start. It was a whirwind of all sorts. By far it was the most stressful, yet the most beautiful in every way. I gained and I lost. Yet I want to believe I gained more. I prepared a breakdown of my year to lay…

For my second part of decluttering, I want to clarify that all this time I’ve been doing it wrong. For the entire time, I thought minimalism is about getting rid of things – which apparently is not. It’s making space for what’s important and valuable. It’s making more space for less. Although I can’t honestly say that I’m actually trying to have a minimalist lifestyle because… I’ve never been materialistic to begin with. So I guess I’m just decluttering my things while maintaining my already simple lifestyle.

Once or twice in your life, you will feel an emptiness in your life. You may be active and busy, yet life still seems incomplete. In your attempt to figure this out, you do things out of the ordinary – things you wouldn’t normally do.

Some people who have never experienced this before (or are simply judgmental) call this drama.
We call it quarter-life crisis.

When I was still working in the corporate world, this quarter-life crisis hit me like a storm. It came out of nowhere and I didn’t know how to manage it by myself. It was the time that I was still adjusting in my very first workplace. I was only a few months in, yet… I was already out of place. What takes years for some only took months for me. I felt I was in the wrong place at the right time. I knew I had to get out of there ASAP.

And so I left that job and started with my self-love journey.
