Glimpses of Motherhood is a series that offers a small peek into the lives of moms from all different places and walks of life. The women give us a look at what life is like for them while also serving up recommendations and getting a little vulnerable. My hope is that these posts make you feel connected and understood, while also seeing the ways other women live their lives differently than yours.
The universe works in weird ways. Just as I’m in the middle of paring down my whole life and purging like a mother, I discover today’s momma: Dacy Gillespie. Dacy is a self-proclaimed fashion therapist who takes the stress out of getting dressed. How does she work this magic, you wonder? Well, partially through minimalism.
Dacy’s philosophy is this:
“We have too much, do too much and worry too much. And even though a life of too much isn’t working, we continue to buy things we don’t need.
But all of these options lead to more overwhelm. And more indecision. And more dissatisfaction with the way we’re living our every day lives.
I truly believe that letting go of what’s unnecessary and buying only what we’ll use and love can be the catalyst for so much positive change (and yes, the change I’m referring to goes far beyond our closets).
To me, minimalism doesn’t only mean white walls and black clothing. It means that you actually use everything you own. It means that you have control over what’s in your closet.
It means embodying the ideas that less is more, quality is more important than quantity and knowing yourself is the path to peace.”
I immediately wanted to know more about her life.
