I am happy to report that today, I passed the 500 page-view mark! I am so happy! It means that my blog is finally taking off and I can (maybe) make a difference and inspire people to lean more towards minimalism.
I am also happy to report that since I started this journey towards happiness, my lifestyle has changed and so has my body image. For the longest time, when I looked at myself in the mirror, I saw a fat, disgusting monster, and today as I was changing, I noticed that I just saw a person. For the first time in my life, I just saw a normal-looking person in the mirror.
I am not saying that minimalism fixed everything or that I dropped 300 lbs because of it (I might have dropped 5 lbs tops, but I have never been over 150lbs in my life to begin with anyway).
What I am trying to say is that when I started this journey towards a more balanced, simpler life, I started focusing on the small things, to find contentment in my everyday life.
I am happier now than when I started, and although my house is nowhere near empty, it is empty enough that I feel serene when I come home.
It might not be much, but it is one small step to rejoice about!
