Have you heard about the Minimalist Game Challenge?
It’s based on a book (Everything that Remains) and website created by Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus. Even in my research about these 2 men, I have fallen in love with the articles and ideals. I won’t plagiarize or regurgitate everything they say, because frankly, you can read their website yourself (or watch this trailer or the movie).
I will share you with some of my journey to create a more balanced life. For the love of all that is good in this world, I just moved and the things looking back at me that we don’t need, use or love in this house (and garage) is alarming. When just spent time, money and energy moving some of these things.
But I too am human! I digress!
Minimalist Game Challenge:
Day 1 you find 1 thing to part with from your possessions.
Day 2 you find 2 things to part with
Day 3 you find 3 things…
Day 4, 4 things and you get the point.
And on Day 30, once you rid yourself of those 30 items, you’ll be at a grand total of 465 items you have decided you no longer need, use, want.
These items can be clothes, junk drawer items, cooking utensils, hair accessories, old lotions, foods you’ve tried by didn’t like, papers in your filing cabinet, you name it, if it’s in your possession and you feel that item is taking some of your precious energy away for it’s use, toss that thing out (garbage, recycle, donate, sell).
Follow us and then check in everyday with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to see what we’ve put into the box. I’ll be selling valuable things as we go, garbage daily and donating the remaining at the end. The key is to get it out of your house.
If you have kids (and sometimes husbands and most times your second-guessing self), I recommend you keep this box somewhere, clearly marked with your end goal, out of reach.
February 1st is the starting date so follow this blog for regular (probably not daily) updates, and play along.
Comment or complain below! 🙂 If you get stuck, I’m here for you.
Still not convinced why you should play along? Maybe this will help convince you.
