I watched a documentary on HBO about minimalism and was truly inspired. It wasn’t so much the idea of living with bare minimal but the idea that we are mistaken when we feel an abundance of material things will somehow bring us more happiness.
I set out the next day and cleaned out the clutter, the excess. I still have a ton in true minimalist terms, don’t get me wrong. But getting rid of that little bit of extra really did change me. It’s been about a month and I truly do feel liberated. My home is more organized. There is less wasted time looking for things. And I can just focus on being happy.
So now I’ve started to think about how I can mentally become a minimalist. How can I not clutter my mind with wasted worries? How can I train myself to only fill myself with ideas and thoughts I value? This is much more difficult than cleaning a closet!
Time will tell, but I already know making this change is something that needs to be done and that I value.
