I have been a minimalist for 2 years now, and my life has never been better, but a while back I came to an impasse. I didn't knew what to do next, what to expect, but I was surprise when I realized that I didn't need to worry about that, I discover some tips for maintaining minimalism in my life, because it is in fact a life journey, it doesn't have a due date. When you are a minimalist you life your life in a minimalist mindset, sometimes you may thing a bit more about it, and some days you may just go with the flow. 

So here are my top tips for sticking to a minimalist lifestyle, for when you find yourself at the "end" of your minimalist journey and can't figure out what's next:


+ F I N D   I N S P I R A T I O N   I N   T H E   M I N I M A L I S T   C O M M U N I T Y
Read blogs or book. Watch youtube videos on decluttering. Find more inspiration with the stories of others and maybe help them on their journey.

+ C O N T I N U E   T O   E D I T   Y O U R   P O S S E S S I O N S 
Sometimes I find myself going to things that I have already decluttered and finding things that I no longer need, so keep of editing your possessions until you only have what makes you happy

+ R E M E M B E R   W H Y   Y O U   W A N T E D   T O   B E   A   M I N I M A L I S T   I N   T H E   F I R S T   P L A C E
Going back to the beginning when you decided that this was what you wanted is actually very inspiring. You can re-evaluate what it is that you want from this journey and remind you of why you started.

+ H E L P   O T H E R S   O N   T H E I R   J O U R N E Y
Once you have figure out your personal journey, you can now help friends or family, or even strangers, to start their own journey.

+ L O O K   A R O U N D   A N D   S E E   W H A T   Y O U   H A V E   A C C O M P L I S H E D
Minimalism is not about removing things from your life. Minimalism allows you to fill in the gaps with things that you love and care about, and get rid of the things that are just keeping you from doing what you really love and want.
