Now, more than ever, things are getting clearer to me. It seems like I now know what I really want. Just like my practice to live a simple and uncomplicated life, minimalism is a perspective/philosophy that can be done and applied to one’s life. However, it’s more serious and requires discipline and sustenance.
From de-cluttering and conserving resources to changing one’s money practices and overall lifestyle for the better, minimalism has so much to offer. It’s a growing lifestyle that has given a lot of people (they call themselves “minimalists”) greater happiness, meaning, fulfillment and control of their lives.
TheMinimalists.com (a very insightful blog whose contents I’ve started to read one essay after another since the other day) views minimalism as:
“Minimalism is a lifestyle that helps people question what things add value to their lives. By clearing the clutter from life’s path, we can all make room for the most important aspects of life: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.”
I want to be a minimalist. Someday, sometime. In this lifetime. One day, I know I’ll get there. For now, I’ll take things slow and start small. That is, by living a simple, uncomplicated life. Who knows it might just lead me in that direction? 🙂
P.S. Thank you to my blogger friend for introducing me to The Minimalists blog through her comment in one of my posts.
