Embracing Intentional Minimalism: Things That Make Me Feel Like "THAT Girl"
Updated: Sep 10
In a world filled with excess, embracing intentional minimalism has become a powerful way to live a more purposeful and fulfilling life. Happiness is actually not hard to reach/feel. We all have things that specifically brings us joy. So, let me share things that make me feel like "THAT girl" - confident, empowered, and in control of my choices. Discover how simple choices can have a profound impact on our well-being.
Financial Stability: One of the key aspects of intentional minimalism is financial stability. When we have control over our finances, we feel empowered and free from the burden of unnecessary debt and materialistic desires. By living within our means and prioritizing experiences over material possessions, we can achieve a sense of financial security that allows us to focus on what truly matters in life.
Connecting with Spirituality: For me, feeling like "THAT girl" goes beyond material possessions. It involves connecting with something greater than myself. Taking the time to talk to God, worship, and nurture my spirituality brings a sense of peace and purpose to my minimalistic journey. Whether it's through prayer, meditation, or engaging in religious practices, embracing spirituality can add depth and meaning to our lives.
Making the Bed: It may seem like a small act, but making my bed every morning is a simple yet powerful reminder of the importance of order and organization. A neatly made bed creates a sense of calm and sets the tone for a productive day ahead. It's a small act of self-care that can make a big difference in how we feel about ourselves and our living space.
Consistency with Habits: Consistency is key to achieving our goals and feeling like "THAT girl." Whether it's sticking to a morning routine, exercising regularly, or practicing mindfulness, consistent habits build discipline and create a sense of accomplishment. By prioritizing our habits and being intentional with our time and energy, we can cultivate a lifestyle that aligns with our values and aspirations.
Nails, Lashes, and Hair: While intentional minimalism focuses on living with fewer material possessions, it doesn't mean neglecting self-care. Taking care of ourselves and feeling confident in our appearance is an important part of feeling like "THAT girl." Whether it's having well-manicured nails, fluttery lashes, or styled hair, these small touches can boost our self-esteem and make us feel put together.
Staying Organized: In the journey of intentional minimalism, staying organized is essential. Keeping up-to-date with our to-do lists, both personal and work-related, helps us stay on track and maintain a clear mind. By decluttering our physical and digital spaces and having systems in place for organization, we create a sense of control and efficiency in our lives.
Minimalism is about more than just decluttering and owning fewer possessions. It's a mindset that allows us to prioritize what truly matters and cultivate a life of purpose and intention. By embracing financial stability, spirituality, self-care, consistency, organization, and mindful choices, we can feel like "THAT girl" - confident, empowered, and living a life aligned with our values.
My hair, nails, and lashes are always done, because it gives me joy. Minimalism is doing things that make you genuinely happy. Being honest with yourself about what you actually need, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually--eliminating excess is the key to living a minimalist lifestyle and becoming happier.
A minimalist lifestyle cannot be copied, it is a personal journey, and what makes you feel like "THAT girl" may be different from others. Embrace the things that bring you joy and align with your values, and let them guide you in your intentional minimalistic lifestyle.
Love ya girl,
