An Update: Where Have I Been The Last Couple of Months?

After I was so blessed to be featured on CNN.com, I should have taken that opportunity and run with it! Unfortunately, it was right in the middle of a hard transition in my life. I have been separated from my spouse for close to 4 months now. Today I sent off my signed papers to my lawyer. Yes, I’m getting a divorce. These last 2 1/2 years has brought a lot of things into my life, not to mention a beautiful daughter who recently turned 1 years old. I have had immense growing experiences, but when it was all said and done, I knew this chapter of my life was over. I won’t go into more detail but the best thing I can do at this point is to not regret. No, I will allow myself to feel the emotions that I feel, when they come, and then ask myself, “what have I learned, what can I learn from this growing experience?”

That being said, I am ready for this new chapter in my life now. I’m ready to come back to my blog. This blog is still about simplifying all parts of my life but I plan to be open, honest, and share my personal growth along my journey of life as it comes. Thank you for all the new people following my blog and thank you for all the kind comments/messages I have received. They are much appreciated! Here’s to the journey, I’m so glad to be able to share this with all of you.

Project 333

project 333

Today I am starting my own Project 333. So what does that mean? It means that I have 33 items (except I’ll be completely honest, it came out to 36 items) in my wardrobe for 3 months. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but wanted to wait until Summer was officially here. Why? Because even though I probably don’t own as many clothes as some of my friends, I’m sure my perspective of my wardrobe after these 3 months will be different. I’ll probably get rid of things, and appreciate how blessed I am to have the other items that I haven’t seen for a while. Now this does not include, wedding ring, pajamas, work out clothes, underclothes, and my robe. That being said, I can’t just lounge in yoga pants all day(except for the ones I counted in these items 🙂 ). All other jewelry, purses, etc. counts as an item. For example, I put in one bag, sunglasses, and one pair of earrings. If I purchase something, or realized that I actually need something else more importantly, then I will switch out an item. So where is the rest of my wardrobe? In boxes. I don’t think of myself as very materialistic, but I do think this will be a bit of a challenge for me.
