Thoughts on “Minimalism: Living a Meaningful Life” 8/5/2012

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!

happy or sad

Day 1 of Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life

Chapter one starts with a quote. “Everything is amazing right now, and yet nobody’s happy.” -Louis C.K.

Do you think this statement is accurate? I know I put on a “happy face” when I am around others even when I am struggling with things on the inside. I try to stay positive so I don’t know if others can really see if I am happy or not. I guess those close to me know…

What percentage of people do you think are unhappy in life? 10%? 50%? 90%? Somewhere in between?
