My name is Jomay Amora-Dueck and I’m so thrilled that you’ve stumbled over to my blog!
If you’re someone who aspires to live with intention and is ready to make a difference, you’re in the right place!
This is the space where I speak my heart and share my life – hoping to inspire change and to encourage others to love more and to live with less!
I am a dreamer, a self-confessed procrastinator and a reformed shopaholic.
I love taking chances, going on big adventures and travelling the world with my husband, Steve.
I’m also a perfectionist and I tend to burn out easily!
Just like everyone else, I am perfectly imperfect, yet beautiful in my own flaws.
My Journey towards minimalism
I unintentionally started my journey into a minimalist lifestyle during one of the lowest points of my life.
Things were NOT going well for me at that time.
I quit two jobs.
I started a business and failed.
I abandoned (fake) friendships and ended relationships.
I had a big mortgage and a big closet – and yeah, I was broke and miserable!
I was drained financially, physically and emotionally.
I made a lot of mistakes. I was stuck in a rut.
I was a complete mess.
Around the same time I realized that my mortgage, credit card debts, personal belongings and a closet full of clothing were literally weighing me down.
So I decided to sell my house and other stuff, and then rented a smaller place to live in.
I found another job and even started a small home business.
Thankfully, I found a way to address my difficult debt situation.
I have also donated, sold and repurposed most of my clothes and other personal items, but I swear I’m not even finished yet.
Eventually, things got a little better. I felt that a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders! (Thank God!)
In 2016, I met Steve who inspired me to live a simpler lifestyle. Since then I became more interested in the concept of “minimalism” and “intentional living” and how it brings more happiness to a lot of people.
I am still in the process of learning to embrace a simpler lifestyle – a life with fewer belongings, more experiences and a much more intentional way of living.
I personally am loving it and I hope you will too!
Through my blog, I hope to share stories and experiences that inspire us to love more, live simply and make our world a better place for everyone.
Here are some of the things that I want to share with you on this blog:
