Welcome to my Minimalism Journey, officially began in July 2017. I did not set out to slim down my wardrobe to 30 items, my worldly possessions to 100, or never buy extraneous things. I won’t be quitting my job, getting rid of my lease, and flying away to travel the world with just a backpack.
I’m here to remove the clutter, the extraneous, and the superfluous from my life so that I am better able to focus on what’s important, what I love, and what I find to be fulfilling. I feel weighed down by the amount of “stuff” which exists in my life, especially in my apartment, so I have been attempting to remove everything except the most important. And so far, I haven’t missed anything, and I feel so much lighter.
I am bringing the Minimalism Mindset into my social, financial, and emotional life as well, and hope to maintain a lifestyle that brings me the most joy.
Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom.
Freedom from fear. Freedom from worry.
Freedom from overwhelm. Freedom from guilt.
Freedom from depression.
Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around.
