Here’s another great article from Becoming Minimalist, which expresses exactly what I’d like to continue to work toward.
Here’s the crux of the article:
Think about it:
- When you clear the clutter from your closet, what are you doing if not making room for the enjoyment of the few quality items you keep?
- When you sell off unneeded books and gadgets and toys, what are you doing if not highlighting the usefulness of the ones that remain?
- When you create space in your life, when you empty your schedule, or your inbox, or your to-do list, what are you doing if not making room for better experiences, better communication, better work?
People who are working towards minimalism are (usually) not denying themselves of the joys of life. They’re focusing on the things that are truly meaningful and getting rid of all the other garbage.
