My beauty routine, or at least my product selection, has NEVER been consistent. Sure, I cleanse, tone, moisturize, and treat. The issue is that I tend to use whatever is hanging out on my bathroom shelves. At first thought you may say, "Well, what's wrong with that? Don't you know what's on your own shelves?" Ummmmm... well... not really.
My beauty shelves contain a few mismatched items from here and there. Not to mention, I still recieve a monthly subscription bag from Ipsy. This means there are samples of just about anything lurking in my bathroom corners.
I'm sick and tired of allowing any old riff raff to determine the condition of my face. Which is why, for the next month, I am pegging down which products I actually want to commit to. This means my counters will be clear enough to actually decorate my bathroom instead of the esthetic being "drugstore, clutter chic".
"This has me questioning other areas of my life where I allow just anything to exist and take up space or time"
What does mean? Well, in a nutshell, I'm trashing anything that has little effect and saying goodbye to Ipsy. I enjoyed recieving my package in the mail, but it's served its purpose, and has helped me narrow down what I want out of my beauty life: clean and moisterized skin that feels amazing.
This has me questioning other areas of my life where I allow just anything to exist and take up space or time. Are we giving the important things our attention and enjoying what we really want? Am I allowing emotional riff raff or mismatched unrealistic obligaions clutter my headspace and sully my purpose? What can I do about it? I need to get rid of it. Hobbies that are distracting me from living a fuller, and pleantiful life? Gone. Social media that has me focused on the unimportant updates of others? Muted. Friends that remain inconsistant? Peace and blessings. Items that refuse to bring value into my life? Trash.
Perhaps there are some items sitting on your counters (physical or conceptual) that aren't doing you, or anyone around you any justice. Take care of yourself, and determine what's going to better your situation and condition, and commit to a life that has more substanance.
