“Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.”
– Edwin Way Teale
People either love or love to hate the minimalist lifestyle.
Throughout my life of constant moving, I have morphed into a somewhat minimalist by accident. Every time we move I donate a lot of stuff, and I go through and donate more when a new season approaches. This means I am now able to fit all my stuff into three boxes. Whenever I get something new I donate something old.
If I look back on when I was in elementary school. My room was a mess. That was before my family started moving a lot. I now feel peaceful when I am in my room. My parents and siblings use it as a getaway from how hectic life can get.
I suggest that everyone explore what their life would look like through a minimalist lens. Think about how it makes you feel. If it’s a feasible process for you to get. There then go for it. Be a somewhat minimalist. Be a fully devoted minimalist. The choice is yours, and the opportunity is waiting.
I am far from a true minimalist, but I am happy with where I am at.
