Welcome to Motherhood Uncluttered! (Formerly known as Karen Sincerely!)
A few months ago, I was feeling overwhelmed, anxious and cluttered in all aspects of my life. Our small apartment was filled with “things” that I didn’t even like and decor that we didn’t pick out ourselves. I knew I needed to make a change but I had no idea where to begin.
I had heard about minimalism and simple living for a few years and loved the concept but never did anything to embrace this type of life. After some reflection, I decided that I needed to start with my home and make my living space more comfortable and how I want it. As I started decluttering and getting rid of material items that I didn’t use and some things I didn’t even remember I had, I all of a sudden started to feel more calm.
I found myself looking forward to going through our home and decluttering. When I saw the positive impact it had on my mental health at home, I decided to apply this concept to every part of my life. I started only saying yes to things or spending time with people that brought me joy. Only buying something that added something to my life and letting go of anything, I mean anything, that didn’t.
This journey has been the most amazing and life changing thing I have done for myself and my little family. Today, I am still in the process of decluttering and simplifying my life but I feel happier, less stressed and much more content. Becoming a minimalist has been a journey of self discovery and evaluating the things in my life and I want to share this journey with you.
I want to help you find the simple and quiet moments in your life and learn to let go of the things that don’t bring peace to your life. I hope that Motherhood Uncluttered will be a source of inspiration and that you will learn a little more about the wonders of a minimalist life!
