I am a writer, activist and ecoist. I enjoy simple things such as doing yoga or reading a good book with a nice cup of coffee. I also love traveling and going on big adventures with Steve.
I am on a mission to inspire people to embrace a nature-loving, purpose-driven life. I truly believe that having a minimalist, sustainable lifestyle can help us achieve both personal and environmental wellness.
I created this blog to share my journey of learning and healing as I embrace the ecoist lifestyle. This is the space where I speak my heart and share my life, hoping to inspire you to live with less and live the life you truly love while protecting the planet we live in.
Many of us are dealing with debt, cluttered homes, broken relationships, stressful jobs or even just trying to figure out how to get by in this chaotic world we live in. Quite overwhelming and frustrating, right? I know how you feel. I’ve been there.
I’ve spent all my life working hard to earn money so that I could buy lots of things and please the people around me. I always wanted more and I thought I needed more stuff to be happy, but eventually I realized that the more material possessions I own, the more unhappy, tired, stressed and sick I was.
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 both my fulltime government job and a part-time job.
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 is a minimalist himself, yet he’s never heard of the term before.
A very down-to-earth guy who owns a few belongings, Steve is able to enjoy and afford the things that really matter to him.
I’ve been in the process of simplifying my life even before I met him but knowing someone like him has inspired me even more to pursue a simple life.
Since then I became more interested in the concept of minimalism and intentional living and I find it so inspiring to see a lot of people benefiting from it.
Giving up my stuff felt like giving up a burden that’s been weighing me down for so long.
I loved how the lightness of less felt. It felt good inside and out.
Living a life with fewer belongings has given me more joy, clarity, peace of mind, and better experiences and opportunities.
Living with less eliminates the unnecessary, allowing me to focus on more important things such as family, health and passion.
I’m Jomay and I created this blog to share my story. This is the space where I speak my heart and share my life. I hope to inspire my readers to live with less, live the life they truly love and love the planet we all live in.
Wouldn't it be so nice if we all live a life with:
less obligation and more freedom
less clutter and more space
zero debt and more wealth
less stress and more health
less frustration and more joy
less anxiety and more peace of mind
less waste and a cleaner environment
less plastic and more biodiversity
less pollution and a healthier planet
An ecoist lifestyle is all about creating a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle that emphasizes the importance of both personal and the environmental wellness.
By becoming an ecoist, we can live a happy, and meaningful life, while reducing our eco-footprints, minimizing pollution and preserving Mother Nature.
Here are three ways to get started on your ecoist journey! Always be patient with yourself and have fun learning along the way!
