#Inspiration-April 2017

80. #InspirationApr

I didn’t get to do an #InspirationMonth in March, like I’ve said before life’s been pretty busy, but I did one for this month and I get to share a few pics of my new room.

  1. Closet Organizer

So I actually have a proper closet organizer with drawers and shelves and everything I own basically fits in this closet right now, no extra book shelf or dresser. The minimalist in me is quite happy.

Minimalism-Part 1

53-minimalism-part-1

Minimalism’s true definition, I believe has been skewed through social media and its sometimes terrible way of filtering through ideas that are different from society. However, with time and a little effort to understand, Minimalism is in essence a rudimentary lifestyle that anyone can adopt.

In my view, minimalism is focused on living an honest and fulfilling life, one where the little things matter the most, the minuscule moments that bring us joy, to learn a greater appreciation for the things we have and for our family.

Creativity

I believe creativity is very important, it allows one to express themselves, and to think of new ideas. Creative intelligence is just as beneficial as any other kind of intelligence.

Creativity comes in many different forms and I think that’s where some people get stuck because it’s not just about being able to draw, it’s not about art. It’s about creating something new and different. Whether that be a painting or a new computer system, or developing a different kind of office space. I think every occupation has room for creativity.

Music: Favourite Artists

Music is amazing. Music is life changing. Music brings on so many different emotions and helps deal with so many different things, and in general it always makes you feel better. So today I wanted to talk about the music that I listen to.

  1. Sleeping with Sirens.

My sister introduced me to a lot of the bands I listen to now. And a lot of them fit under the genre of metal or punk rock. Sleeping with sirens is one of them, and I have yet to find a song I don’t like. And it’s because they are true to themselves, they write what they feel or about things that happen in their lives and I really like that. I like the meaning in their songs and they seem to be really connected to their fans.

  1. Fall Out Boy

A more recent obsession of mine. I like Fall Out Boy because they have a song kind of for anything that your feeling, and a lot of them are really up-beat and feel-good songs.

How To: Stay Organized

12. Stay Organized.jpg

Staying organized seems to be the biggest challenge in our society today, even I struggle with staying on top of things sometimes. But overall, I am a relatively organized person so today I’d thought I’d share some tips on how I do that.

  1. Write everything down.

And I mean everything. With our lives so busy now, you are bound to forget something so write it down. In a notebook or on your phone, wherever works best for you. our minds only allow us to remember 5-9 things at a time, and my to-do lists are often a notebook page full, so there’s no way I could keep all of that just in my head.

Happiness

Happiness. So few can claim it. So few can say they are happy in this world where corruption and destruction are daily events. Happiness seems to have become a rarity.

However, after struggling with family issues, suffering from depression, pulling myself out of it, and then still struggling with family issues, I can finally say that I am happy.

By no means am I happy all the time, 24/7, but I am happy. I am happy because I started this blog, because I can see my photography improving each time I take a new picture. I am happy because of music, and how passionate my sister is about all of the bands she likes, which just makes me excited about it too.
