barely minimalist is back!

I’ve been MIA for awhile, I know.  I googled my blog last night (yeah, I’ll admit it), and was reading through my past posts and noticed the last time I posted was in July 2012.  WOW!  To tell the truth, I’ve had a heck of past 9 months.  I promoted at my job last January and since then was living in a frequent state of high stress, adrenaline pumping madness. Literally everything else in my life took a backseat. 

As I was reading through my old posts I was thinking, “I don’t even know this person anymore, but I want to!”.  I’ve totally stepped away from my barely minimalist path and jumped right back on that train of consume, consume, consume.  But I need to find my way back home.

I actually have some big, controversial news…I quit my job!  Yes I did.  Say whatever you want, but this was a personal decision I made after a year of planning and I’m stoked!  It’s been about 3 weeks and I ain’t looking back.  I love it!  I’m in school finishing up my Bachelor’s, gardening in my community plot, working on some very small business ideas and just plain relaxing.  It’s awesome. 

I’m looking forward to lots of yoga, healthy eating, a 21-day cleanse, and getting back into my love of simple living and minimalism.  I’m taking my time right now though, flirting with all these things I want to do.  I don’t want pressure, I want freedom.  This is my life and I’m living, for the first time in awhile.  I’ve jumped off the cliff and the sleep-walking is over.  No more dreading everyday life.
