Really Living Life to the Fullest


I know this might be a shock to some of you, but lately I'm not so obsessed with buying Jeep parts and Jeep accessories. I am pretty content with my Jeep build so I am focusing on my Jeep experiences














A few years back I began to simplify my life. It's been a process of learning and growing. One of those processes was to declutter my life of unnecessary stuff. During this process I have redefined my relationship with stuff. Stuff was bogging down my life. 



I would use stuff to feel better. I used to believe stuff defined me. I would collect stuff. I kept stuff hidden away in bins. I have found a new perspective about the stuff I need or want in my life. 





It took several passes of decluttering to let go of my stuff that didn't add meaning to my life. Each time I got rid of something whether donating it, selling it or throwing it out I felt so liberated and free. 

Now my home is a place for happiness, good times, and relationship building, not a place to store stuff. 

I still appreciate the things I own. I just don't let them own me. Plus living with less stuff gives me more free time and more money. One example is the less I have in my house the less things I need to clean which means more free time to do the things I love. 


Lately I began to realize my favorite things aren't things or stuff. My favorite things are connecting with people, sharing my passion, traveling, being in nature with my Jeep, a good nights sleep, hanging with friends and spending time with my family. I cherish those experiences and relationships, not things. 

After all these years I am beginning to really live life ~ to experience life everyday!
