Hello Modesto! Continuing the Minimalist Challenge, the idea now is to meditate for fifteen minutes daily.

When I think about Meditation, I create a very relaxing set in my mind, with a blue sky, a very calm wind, sitting in the position of Yoga, exposed to the sun pleasantly warm and the ideal ambient sound! Beautiful image right? I agree too! But my real life is definitely the opposite of this scene!

Who has a small kid and cares for him full time knows that there is no time to meditate, even with the bathroom door locked, but believe me: this dependence will pass as they grow. So that ideal scene for me doesn’t exist.

So … How can I meditate for fifteen minutes a day?

Each case is unique, right? And in my case I use those fifteen minutes at breakfast. After I leave my son at school, I return home, prepare my coffee, go back to my room, change my clothes, and sit comfortably in my bed to drink my black strong coffee and read a book (currently I read The Life-changing Magic of Tidying – Marie Kondo).

This is my daily routine (Sunday to Sunday) and it was how I found my moment to meditate, it may seem impossible, but I am very inspired and willing to start the day and work.

Hello Modesto!!

Do you remember the post 30 Days of Minimalism Challenge? So … Let’s talk about my first challenge? Could I do it?

In fact, I stay offline every weekend, except when some urgent job appers, well there is no options! But except that, Saturday and Sunday are the days I take off to do things which I can’t do during the week. It’s laundry-day, organizing my financial spreadsheet, writing my thoughts with the perfect coffee. Anyway, it’s the days when I enjoy my son: talking, playing, going to the movies or studying (if he really needs help).

Oh God! Of course I’ve been internet addicted, spent hours watching movies, Orkut, MSN or even ICQ (I’m so old school!!) but, currently I’ve a mature relationship with the internet. It’s here to help me not the opposite 😉

In this case I finish saying: “Stay offline for one day” is not a hard task, and Yes! I can stay offline for a whole day.

Hello Modesto!!

Lately I’ve been so busy that haven’t time to dedicate myself to blogging, thinking about it I decided looking for an incentive, something that really makes me committed and check what I found: a great Minimalism Challenge!

Who meet me knows how much I love challenges that contribute something positive in my life, I already stayed 30 days without Facebook (which make me to disable my account), I already 12 months without soda (which resulted in 3 years and definitely I don’t need it! Intend to keep it that way for the rest of my life) and currently I’m in a challenge of 3 months without all kind candies (I confess, what make me survive are the fruits!), I will share with you each experience in the future.

Just like I said, I like proposals that make me a better person, thinking about it, instead of following for only 30 days I commit myself for all life long. Make me more sense!

As per I write, I’m updating here, so it will be easier to identify each item, ok?

I confess!!! I’m very anxious to start it!!! 😉

After long months studying, I finally managed to leave this space exactly as I always wanted: simple, but with a lot of love in every detail.

In Jan/2016 was when it all start over, as a little joke without expectations in the outcome and in a few months later I realized: many people liked what I was writing, no matter what: about minimalism, motivations, personal chronicles or tips about anything, the important thing was that I was receiving positive feedback and it pushed me up, made me be sure thereof what I love most to do: write! So I decided it was time to dedicate myself and that’s why we’re here!

My target is only share thoughts, moments, feelings… make less complex the life that by itself is already be 🙂
