“Less money spent means more money saved
More money saved means the longer you can live in financial peace and security
Financial peace and security comes from owning less
Less stuff owned means less to carry around, move or have to travel with
Less responsibility for your stuff also means less maintenance and more time
The more time you have, the more relaxed you will feel
The more relaxed you are, the less you will care about stuff
If you care less about stuff, it means you’ll care less about image
If you care less about image, you will care more about experiences and memories
If you care more about experiences and memories, you will be happier with less
If you are happier with less, you’ll never want or need for more
The less you want or need for more, the more you will feel free”
I’ve been reading about the concept of minimalism for the past couple of months or so and it is mind bluh bluh blowing! It’s really flipped my world upside down and helped me to shake most of the things I don’t really need out of my life. Most of us, whether we know it or not or admit it or not, are slaves to consumerism. We buy things we don’t need. I do. All the time. But I don’t want to be a part of this messed up system anymore and to anyone interested in keeping more of their hard earned money in their pockets, clearing the daily clutter that slows them down, and obtaining a buttload of mental, material, and emotional freedom, I highly encoruage you to look into minimalism! Stop following blogs that don’t help you grow, donate the clothes you never wear to people who actually need it, unsubscribe from the people you are only “facebook friends” with, give away the books you’ve already read to your friends and family. I believe anyone and everyone can apply even just a few methods of minimalism to make their life as free and streamlined as possible. But check it out and see for yourself!
Some dope minimalism websites I’ve found are:
Now if only they taught this kind of stuff in school….
