The theme of this week’s photo challenge by The Daily Post, is pure. There are a whole lot of definitions describing the word pure depending on context and one that got my attention is as follows:
pure .adj - free from foreign or inappropriate elements and free from discordant qualities
When I hear the word pure I think of something soft in nude colours and I get the feeling of something being untouched - Just like a fresh start with unexplored opportunities. Pure for me is also something clean and lightweight.
This fits perfectly into my current approach to declutter my life by adopting a more minimalistic lifestyle. This includes throwing away stuff I no longer use and avoid buying stuff I don’t need. It is also a mindset to keep things simple and eliminate everything that is weighing me down, like negative thoughts and poor relationships with other people. By reducing the “bad stuff” I believe that I will be able to focus on the important things in life that will bring me real value - and that feels kind of pure to me.
The images below are my attempt to visualize what pure looks like based on my description above. Feel free to leave a comment on what pure means to you. I would love to hear it!
