I was talking to Lo tonight about how I’m considering going over to Cambodia and Vietnam next year to do some volunteer work and Lo also, is keen on going. We joked about the fact that soon, we’re going to have nothing left because after Europe, we’re both trying to get rid of all the unnecessary things we own. Backpacking and living in a suitcase really changes your views on things, namely items. I was throwing away scarfs and jackets along the way as I simply didn’t have any room in my backpack nor was it worth it to send home.
And this is coming from the girl that NEVER throws anything away. I always argued that I will need it as soon as I throw it out but I don’t think that’s the case anymore. I’ve developed this whole new attitude where I have zero attachment and it’s a great feeling.
At the moment, I’m setting up a blog for all my skirts and dresses, all my recent stuff that I’ve bought thinking, “this is cute, I can wear it to a wedding or a formal dinner”. Those events never came.
Someone argued with me recently that there’s no such thing as simplicity. I think I’m on my way to proving them wrong.
