Declutter & Purify Your Life

L- is for the way you look at me...
O- is for the only one I see...
V- is very, very extraordinary...
E- is even more than anyone that you adore...

Yeahhhh, I'm totally listening to my favorite jazzy pandora station right now and that song is currently playing! <3

Moving on Charity... ;) 

Hello lovelies & Happy Sunday!

I know I just blogged yesterday but here I am again! I'm in a typing mood so I'm going to do just that. I've been thinking a lot lately about decluttering and purifying. Those two words seem to keep coming to my mind over and over. Obviously, I think we all pretty much know what these two words mean but I went to to the dictionary to get the exact meanings:

Declutter: to remove mess or clutter from (a place) and to organize and prioritize (one's commitments, material possessions, etc.)

Purify: to make pure; free from anything that debases, pollutes, adulterates, or contaminates. To clear or purge.

So, I've been in this "purging" state for a couple weeks now. I feel as though I'm getting to a point in my life that I'm tired of random stuff, pointless relationships and useless clutter taking up so much time and space in my life. I don't know why sometimes we feel like the more "things" we possess, the happier we'll be. I'm finding that's totally not the case! For example, that dress I bought 6 months ago and only wore once? I thought I HAD to have it. Those who know me at all know I love fashion-- but I'm finding I'm happier in basic tee's and ripped jeans. In the next few weeks, I plan on going through my entire closet and getting rid of about 80% of what I own. Those clothes and shoes-- they just don't seem to matter to me anymore! Now, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with dressing up and looking nice... What I'm trying to get across is if you have an entire closet full of CLUTTER and it doesn't make you happy anymore, get rid of it!

I think I'm right at two months since I deleted most of my social media accounts. It's honestly been one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. (Facebook in particular) I can't tell you how much clearer my mind has been without all of the negativity and toxic waste creeping in on the daily. I created another Instagram but never use it besides keeping up with a few people here and there. I just don't get social media anymore if we're being honest. Why did I spend so many years documenting every single thing I was doing with my life instead of actually ENJOYING what I was doing. I saw everything through an iPhone screen and didn't take full advantage of those moments. So annoying.

I guess the point of this blog post is to encourage someone to declutter and purify your life! Be choosy with your friend circle... If you have relationships that are toxic and constantly bringing you down, say goodbye! If you have an overwhelming amount of "stuff" and it feels like you can't get your head above water, throw it in the trash! If social media makes you envious or jealous of others, delete it!

Have a fantastic week y'all! <3

People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's no where else on earth
That I would rather be

Let the time go by
I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live...

I figured I would end the blog with letting you all know what song is playing on my jazzy pandora station now! HA! 

Love always,

"Only dead fish go with the flow."
