Minimalism, to me, is about cutting out the unnecessary and adding in the necessary. It takes a conscious effort be present and in tune with your current senses, your surroundings, and what is happening RIGHT NOW. Scrolling through a phone or social media places your focus into the lives of other people. Being constantly sucked in to the craziness of the workday can place you in a constant "what's next" mode.
Even if it was just for one moment of the day, this challenge helped me to re-focus on being present - to resist from being anxious about the past or stressing about the future.
I did not complete every challenge, but I completed most. And with March starting, I'm excited to embrace my creative side and one of my passions: photography. One photo a day, one month. Let's do it!
