It’s nice to meet you, here are a few things about me and my blog!
My name is Christopher. I am a 20-year-old Canadian born and raised in Ontario. The main theme of this blog will be intentional living, and my hope is to share stories with you about my journey as I learn and grow.
I have been a minimalist for three years now and I am always finding ways to make my life simpler. I was introduced to minimalism when I came across a YouTuber who sold everything she owned to follow her dreams and live free of being tied down by stuff. At the time when I looked around me, I saw a lot of clutter in my life and I wanted to change that. Over these years I have done multiple decluttering challenges and read many books on minimalism and tidying up and now I want to share my experiences with you, as well as learn from you.
I will have been a vegetarian for one year in January and I have a goal of going vegan in 2019, ultimately I want to reduce to amount of harm I cause to animals, the environment, and my health. In a way, this is a part of my minimalist journey, minimalizing the negative impact I have on others and myself. In this blog, I hope to share any tips and tricks I find as I go vegan, and again learn from you guys. In the end, this is all a learning experience.
For a long time, I have struggled with mental illness, just like thousands of others. I believe it is important to have open discussions about mental health and work together to crush the stigma around mental illness. I am not a doctor or a mental health professional, and although I can not truly speak on mental health, I can share my experiences.
I am apart of the LGBT+ community and am very open about it. I identify as transgender female to male, and pansexual. In this blog, I want to be able to share stories such as how I came out to myself and to others, going on hormones, and top surgery.Although I am not a doctor or a mental health professional I want to share these stories in the hopes that it will make these things seem a little less scary for people who might be going through them.
My hope for this blog and its many themes is that it will draw in many different types of interests. If you’re not interested in one topic, you don’t need to read about it. I plan on setting it up in such a way that it will be easy to navigate topics and find what you are looking for. I hope to post a new blog every week, with the occasional exception. This is all a learning experience for me, and I hope to get better with time and really make something out of this.
Thank you guys so much for stopping by,
And until next time
