Something exciting to start my post – I had an opportunity to share a session on “Minimalism” last week at work! It was an informal presentation that I have to put up. While I am not expecting anyone to change overnight but I just wish that people could pay a little bit attention to the meaning behind it.
Some colleagues are quite interested in the ideas while others are not so receptive to it.
One colleague commented that you are creating karma to throw away stuffs. I literally rolled my eye at that comment. Stuffs aren’t living things… They have no life. While they can be useful IF you have any use for it, they are worthless and is consider as an “rubbish” if there is no use. In fact, by cluttering things, it affects your life, your mind and your health. How come you be creating karma if you are just helping yourself to LIVE BETTER.
I have previously lend her my book (The life changing magic of tidying up) to read but it seems like nothing gets into her head.
Well, I declared “helpless” for this case! While I can share my ideas, but if someone refused to change, then there is nothing I can do. Its their life after all…
As for my minimalism efforts, I am still doing bit of everything that I can while constantly remind myself of the rules that I have set up. It is particularly difficult because I am planning for a vacation to South Korea. I needed to get some stuffs for the trip. And its year end! It means the festive season is here. I really hate gift exchange. It is meaningless and you ended up with things that you do not need.
I have thought of not preparing anything because I will be out of town anyway. But there is still some colleagues I have to give.
Other than that, there is always sales everywhere!!! (Best solution is not to look at them!)
I purchased some stuffs during the 11.11 sales. But I have carefully selected the stuffs that I wanted to buy so I won’t ended up with more stuffs that I intended.
I need to start looking into my stuffs again and ensure the extra ones are out of my life.
Okay next topic is FANTASTIC BEASTS 2 have opened! I have watched it. While its still exciting to watch, but I feel that it’s too dark and less magical. I wanted to ask my sister to bring my nieces who got interested in Harry Potter not too long ago to watch. But I think it will be too dark for them. I love Newt though! It is a great character…
