Minimalism

Minimalism

Imagine a blank canvas.  It’s your life.  What will you put in it?

Will you fill it with stuff, select a minimalist approach, or something in between?  There’s no right or wrong way, just your way.  It’s YOUR life, not someone else’s.

Fill your canvas with what makes YOU happy. 

Now, compare this canvas with your actual life today.  Are you burdened with past possessions, or motivated by them?  Do they energize you or enervate?  Should you keep your mementoes or eliminate them? Is it time to reevaluate?

I was so fortunate to be interviewed by Nicole Pyles, an imaginative journalist whose article on the Minimalism movement was just published in 44691 Magazine.  The essence of the movement is to achieve balance. 

Minimalism, although very popular today, is only one approach to enjoying our “space”.  As Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “It’s common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But, above all, try something.” 

A thoughtful approach to de-cluttering gives you the chance to review your priorities, surround yourself with the things that make you happy and have a balanced life.
