Thoughts on “Minimalism: Living a Meaningful Life” 8/11/2012

For the next 7 weeks, starting on Monday 8/6, I am going to read a book called “Minimalism: Live A Meaningful Life” by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. I am reading one chapter a week (as suggested) and see where I end up. I want to invite you to join me for the next 7 weeks if it sounds interesting to you. Post what jumps out at you, I would love to compare notes!


Day 6 of Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life

Discovering Minimalism:
I enjoyed this section because I came in with my own preconceived notions of what “Minimalism” was. These sections jumped out at me.

“The point is that minimalism is a tool to help achieve freedom….Real Freedom.”

“Minimalism looks different for everyone because it is about finding what is essential to you.”

“Minimalism is a tool we use to live a meaningful life. It is a tool to achieve happiness, which is (let’s face it) what we are all looking for. We all want to be happy. Minimalism can help.”

“There are no rules in minimalism. Rather minimalism is simply about stripping away the unnecessary things in your life so you can focus on what’s important.”

“Minimalists search for happiness not through things, but through life itself.” – WOW, that’s a big one for me!

How are the small steps going?

The start is going to be challenging, but keep pushing through!
