My journey to zero waste

Hi everyone. Today I want to talk about going zero waste and I want to take you along with my journey. I love watching zero waste videos on YouTube, especially as it really motivates myself and inspires me to produce less waste. There are multiple things that I already do to reduce the amount of waste that I produce, and there are some things that I am ready to introduce to my lifestyle. I am a total beginner when I comes to zero waste, so if you have any remarks or tips, please let me know!

The minimalist wishlist; why it is okay to have a wishlist as a minimalist

Please I don’t want any gifts. I started saying this and people always think its a lie. I really don’t want to be ungrateful but for me I rather get an experience such as a lunch together or another way to do something fun rather then getting something. The more I get into minimalism, the less I want, but also the better I know what I do want. I don’t want cheap mass production items or items where you pay more for the brand then for the items worth. I like things that have good quality and are made with great care and love. And additionally I want new experiences. Many things I rather pay for myself. I like 100% natural peanut butter or vegan ‘cream cheese’ spread. I like nuts and trying new fruits. I want to book a sprs.me vacation, and discover new places.

About my ‘diet’

Two years ago I saw the documentary cowspiracy. This made me think so much about my food choices, mostly concerning the effect on the environment. I began a vegetarian diet. As someone who never ate much meat anyway, this was a fairly easy step. Nevertheless I started eating meat again. This had multiple reasons, one being the pressure I put on myself. I felt so guilty when eating meat or any animal product. Additionally I felt as if I was lacking nutrients and other essentials, especially calories. I continued eating animal products, but kept reaching for alternatives most of the time.

Cause i love you for infinity

I don’t want to write a cheesy love story down. I found my soulmate, my love, last year. It’s strange how good we connected and grew as a couple and as people. And even though you can never be certain, I feel so in love and loved, and I can only be truly grateful for being together.

The thing is, I always was or at least felt a bit different. In the sense that I had a very bad self esteem and I could never imagine anyone liking me. I went through many years filled with mostly anxiety and never really felt good and confident. Do not get me wrong here, in those years I did many things that I liked and my days were mostly filled with joy. I somehow always managed and found people with whom I connected and with whom I felt like I could really be myself. Hi Noëlle and Asmara <3 But internally I was also struggling with anxiety, I was very shy and a total anti-social introvert. I had totally accepted being forever alone.

Last month of the year

Once again the year flew by so quickly. It’s the last month of the year and to be honest I am not ready yet for December to end.

I wrote a list of goals and as the year went by I changes some and I added more. It’s good to update your goals, however looking at my 2017-2018 goal list it seems as if I failed pretty hard. Looking back at all the things that happened this year I must say I am really happy!

Of course I went trough some shitty things/moments/’experiences’ but overall a lot of good things happened. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t make a list out of them (or at least the ones I recall at the moment).
