When I first started this adventure of decluttering at the beginning of the year that was all it was to me, decluttering. As I go along on this journey and discover the freedom that unburdening our lives of things that only bring stress on us I am starting to embrace the idea of taking it to the next level.
It really is a natural progression because the fundamentals of minimalism have been a constant topic of conversation in our home for some years mostly without me even realising it. My husband has been reading up and considering the options available to us for some time now and I have only just put a label to the concept.
In a round about way I stumbled onto a blog recently – Sanity In Simplicity – that follows one person’s journey into to minimalist lifestyle. I haven’t read that much of her posts yet but what I have read I have enjoyed.
Here is a small sample from the very first post from Megan’s blog….
Minimalism means many things to many people. To me, it is a way to declutter my space so that I can declutter my mind so that I can declutter my life and sort out my priorities. It a way to have more time and less stress, and be more environmentally friendly. It means working less and playing more. Minimalism, to me, is freedom…
Megan has some links to other great blogs about minimalism as well that are worth a look at.
Maybe next year I will have a whole new blog topic to consider “How I stumbled into minimalism” but lets not get ahead of ourselves after all one step at a time is the motto of 365lessthings.
