Challenge COMPLETE!

SO, 

I MADE IT!!

I’ve successfully completed my challenge of not buying any clothes, accessories, or shoes until 2014.  I almost can’t believe that it’s 2014 and that it’s been 150ish days.  I feel a very strong sense of accomplishment, but also a strong sense of control.  There were several times where I wanted to buy something (and a few times did and then returned) and I’ve been able to put things into perspective.  

Life is so much more than things.  And I have always known this, but at this point in my life, I have realized it.

I would never have been able to save up to move out (in 11 days!!) and I would never have been able to get this weight off my shoulder.  Since I began working downtown again, it’s been so hard to find a sense of home and I can’t wait to start growing roots of my own, on my own and experience life for all it’s worth.

I haven’t decided whether or not to continue to take daily pictures, but for now I will.

Cheers to all of you for putting up with me, and cheers to a new year!

XO,

Mags.
