Make some space for YOU


Yesterday I spent a good hour on going through my reading list on Blogger to find out most of those bloggers had already moved to different addresses or had just stopped writing. It made me sad to see that most of the initial bloggers I followed when I started writing have stopped writing. I am sure they have moved on to better things, but nostalgia isn't pleasant. So, I decided to clean up my reading list and ended up unfollowing two-thirds of them. It was hard. But, I don't think any of them were coming back so I chose to make space for new ones! Any suggestions for me?

Then I went on to packing, which is another hard thing for me to do. I love everything I have and not being able to fit it into my luggage is painful. I have to either throw it, donate it, or just leave behind in hope of getting it later. At moments like this, I think I just shouldn't buy things because goodbyes are just too damn hard. I have two bags already, and two I am leaving behind to get later, and still I have so much that I will just have to get rid of. Moving is a pain, and I hope my nomad life gets over soon and I can make a home for me.

But, despite the pain of it, in the end it feels good to de-clutter and get rid of things we don't need anymore. So, clean your space, throw out what you don't need, and trust me you'll feel light!

  4. It can bedifficult to let go of some stuff, but you'll feel better once you have less of it. Good luck on the move.

  5. I agree with this! A couple years ago I won a decluttering challenge where I totally transformed my basement. I ended up donating over 20 huge boxes of stuff to charity, it was an amazing feeling. It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders and I had less stuff to rummage through when I needed something.

  8. I'm guilty of slowing down at times myself but id recommend following ME ;) (choresandchandeliers.blogspot.com) Shameless I know....I need to clean out mine too. Most I initially followed have stopped. I will be following along to see who is recommended to follow. I'd love to find some new ones myself.

  9. I literally just went through all of my clothes the other day and ended up giving a vast majority of them away. I do this a couple times of year. My husband forces us to go through our stuff throughout the entire house and yard at least once. Of course, his mother is a major hoarder!

  10. I need to declutter too, but it seems it piles back up again after 2 seconds LOL!

  11. The same thing happens with Twitter - I have to keep unfollowing people to make room for new ones and the ones that haven't posted for the longest time always seem to be really interesting

5 Motivational Quotes about Gratitude // Monday Motivation

It's the Thanksgiving week, and we can use a little more gratitude in our life.  So, today I am sharing few quotes about gratitude  to fill our hearts more with love and abundance and to remind us that life isn't bad at all!


“Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!!  Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.”  ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,  it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh


“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love


“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”  ― Maya Angelou
