I am Toni Miranda and here is my story…
I’m Ms. TM, an image strategist and motivational speaker based in Manila, Philippines. I am also the Minimalist Beauty Queen.
I live to give God glory in my life by serving Him, my family and others. My greatest inspirations are my husband and my two children. I love spending time with them because we can all hang out together like friends. My husband and I enjoy sharing our stories to our children, from our childhood memories to our life experiences, and really just laugh and talk about everything.
I also love this stage where I can cultivate this wonderful relationship with my two grown children. We share fun moments together and talk about our personal challenges. I guide them as they navigate their own lives and inspire them to be better versions of themselves. Likewise, they teach me how to become a better mother. Together, we help each other shine.
Our family loves to travel and discover new places like restaurants and vacation spots. Traveling encourages us to widen our perspectives and learn about the world and the people.
We believe that our family was called to bless others. Keeping our family grounded on the one true foundation — Jesus Christ — we make Him the center of our lives by committing to glorify and serve Him in all that we think, say and do.
My Story and Purpose
As the Minimalist Beauty Queen. I am the queen of my life and my home. Yet for years, I lived a messy and chaotic life. Then, I discovered the need to declutter my home and my heart. That’s when I started living like a ‘queen.’ I realized living a cluttered life is no longer fitting for a queen. If you have been tired of the mess and clutter of your life and looking to break free from the crazy cycle of pressures of life, Welcome home. This is the place we learn to unleash our greatness when we live a minimalist lifestyle. I hope you find inspiration and encouragement as I write about living a clutter-free life. Follow my journey to simplicity and pursue your own purpose-directed life.
When I went through life’s ups and downs, I realized that my life is not all about me. I saw how important it is to make God the center of my family. My role as a wife and mother is critical because God has called me to be faithful in these roles.
My journey taught me a tough yet important lesson. A broken family creates repercussions that will last a lifetime. It has a lasting effect on each family member, as well as friends and other people close to us. Through all those experiences, I learned that that a good family relationship determines the true success of an individual.
I used to think that I was a self-made woman. I defined success in three ways: money, possessions and position. And because of this I lived a stressful life riddled with sin. I was always busy and my schedule was full of activities. My hectic life changed when I went through hysterectomy in the year 2016. After this major event in my life, I began searching for my life’s purpose. I started decluttering my life, especially my heart. This is when I started living The Minimalist Beauty Lifestyle in an intentional journey. I let go of all negativity that corrupts my mind and went through a series of journey of letting go. It was not easy. I bought books, enrolled in minimalism classes and enrolled in minimalist life coaches. It was not easy to sustain it. It was day to day journey of baby small steps, consistency, discipline and self-control. I searched for my unique purpose and discovered my priorities. I gained freedom, peace, and unspeakable joy. I created more space to the more important things in my life. I gained time and space for GOD.
That’s when God re-introduced Himself to me.
He made me see that I was too focused on myself and did not see my true purpose. The Lord reminded me that I was made by Him and for Him. My life is all about The Lord using my life for His purpose and not the other way around. It’s about becoming the woman that He created me to be.
There is nothing in my life that God didn’t care about— yes, even the bad moments. This is why I hold onto Romans 7 and 8 so dearly. I am now living the new life God has given me through the grace of Jesus Christ. And I want to help others discover their purpose and meaning as well by using the gifts and experiences God has given me.
I hope and pray that through my personal testimony, learning experiences and minimalist beauty lifestyle advocacy, readers will be refreshed, inspired, and encouraged to take a leap of faith to live a minimalist lifestyle: a life that trusts God and surrenders it all to discover the fullness of life that only He can provide.
